2013 marked GPE Companies’ 40th anniversary, and to celebrate, the company mounted a yearlong campaign of giving, called 40 for 40. The effort resulted in a cornucopia of critical supplies delivered to multiple Valley charities.
“The community has supported us wholeheartedly throughout GPE Companies’ 40 years, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to give back,” said company President David M. Genovese. “With so many deserving charities in the Valley, selecting ones to support was difficult.”
Each month, employees set a goal of collecting 40 items particular to the chosen organization. They exceeded the goal every time.
For St. Mary’s Food Bank, an array of food items will satisfy the hunger of needy families. AnySoldier.com received boxes of everyday essentials to send to troops in Afghanistan. The rescue pets waiting for adoption at HALO and Friends for Life now have refreshed supplies.
Children participating in Salvation Army’s Kinder Ready program will have new backpacks to carry their books. Mentally and physically disabled residents of Ozanam Manor, a temporary home, received 40 cases of bottled water. Central Arizona Shelter Services received blankets to keep residents warm. Children with an incarcerated parent touched by Angel Tree, a Christian-based program that spreads religion to inmates and their families, received new toys.
“GPE values being a part of and contributing to the community in which we live and work,” said Genovese. “We hope in small way the donated items will make a difference.”
