Infinity Drain, manufacturer of architectural and decorative drains for both indoor and outdoor applications, has partnered with Services for the UnderServed (S:US) and Long Island Cares to prepare and serve hot meals as well as collect and donate dry goods for members of their local community.
"What began as an effort to provide personal protective equipment for our employees at the start of the pandemic, quickly transformed into a much larger endeavor to serve our community," states Jonathan Brill, Infinity Drain president. "We joined forces with other local businesses to order 40,000 masks, sold what we had leftover and donated those profits to local organizations."
Quickly recognizing a greater need in the surrounding neighborhoods, not only for PPE but for food and comfort as well, Infinity Drain partnered with S:US and Long Island Cares to give back in a much larger way.
"We're grateful for the generosity of Infinity Drain in providing hot homecooked meals to the most in need families served by S:US on Long Island. COVID-19 has weakened the safety net for vulnerable New Yorkers and these times are especially challenging for those who have lost their jobs. S:US is helping thousands of New Yorkers during this crisis, thanks to the support of partners like Infinity Drain. Jonathan Brill and his team have been absolutely wonderful and everyone is a pleasure to work with, including their kind and talented chef," said S:US chief of staff Judith Jackson.
"There's a lot of food insecurity happening right now on Long Island. Many people don't know when or where their next meal is going to come from," continues Brill. "We wanted to make life a little easier for folks during these hard times, so we began preparing boxed lunches in the BBQ truck we use for trade shows. And now, we cook three times a month in a commercial kitchen we established in our warehouse."
Since the start of the pandemic, Infinity Drain has prepared over 400 meals for churches, homeless shelters and veterans.
