Since 2005, the employees of McPhee Electric Ltd. have had a tradition of contributing to worthy non-profit service organizations in lieu of individual holiday gifts. Each year employees, friends, family, customers, and professional contacts are invited to cast their vote from a list of local charities for a donation in their honor. Employees aid in choosing the charities that appear on the survey which is sent out each December.
Most recently, McPhee has donated over twenty-one thousand dollars to area organizations following the 2013 charity results. Recipients were Foodshare in Bloomfield, CT, United Service Organization (USO) New England branch in Boston, MA, Hartford County Toys for Tots, and the Connecticut Burn Center at Bridgeport Hospital.
President Marcus McPhee says, “We are honored to have clients and employees who endorse the concept of giving to philanthropic organizations. We know our small donations will go a long way in helping these organizations fulfill a need in our community.”
