PRLog - Sep. 9, 2011 - NEW BRITAIN, Conn. -- Guida’s Milk, one of the few remaining family-owned independent dairies in the northeast, donated $2,500 to the Springfield Chapter of the Red Cross Disaster Relief Program earlier this week. The generous donation is a result of a program Guida’s Milk ran in the months of June, July and August, which designated a portion of the profits from each gallon of their milk sold in the state of Massachusetts to help the tornado victims.
Earlier this month, Guida’s Milk also donated approximately 4,000 gallons of Guida’s Spring Water to the Connecticut Food Bank. This charitable donation was initiated to assist CT residents affected most by the recent devastating results of Hurricane Irene. “We are trying to do our part as a local company to help our local community.” said Michael Guida, the President of Guida’s Milk.
Guida’s Milk encourages other companies and individuals in the surrounding area to follow their lead and do what they can to help. For more information on how you can help your local disaster relief programs, you can go to:
