Coke Northeast Community Update- August 2020
This summer has been unlike any other and as we near the end of this very busy and challenging season, we wanted to share some of the ways our associates continue to give back to the communities we are fortunate to serve.
In early August, Coke Northeast donated Powerade to the Big Brothers Big Sister of New Hampshire for their Kids Care Pack Drive. Later in the month the packs, filled with many other things including arts and crafts, games, and hygiene essentials were delivered to “littles” around the state in an effort to help them feel more connected.
Coca-Cola Naugatuck, Coca-Cola Cape Cod, and Coca-Cola Syracuse made generous donations of Coke Energy to local first responder teams including Police and Fire Departments to help keep them energized during long shifts.
Coca-Cola Syracuse partnered with the Syracuse Mets, the triple-A affiliate of the New York Mets, to provide food and beverages to several local hospitals at the height of the pandemic in upstate New York. Pictured here is Mike Brown, Coca-Cola Syracuse District Manager.
In August, Coca-Cola Syracuse partnered with Tops Market to raise money for JDRF. JDRF is a nonprofit organization that funds type 1 diabetes research. Coke Northeast Chairman Steve Burrows is pictured here assisting District Sales Manager Dave Merchant in this promotion at Tops in Chittenango, NY.
Coca-Cola Naugatuck participated in the Sunoco Travel Center Grand Opening in New Milford, CT in August. The team sampled Coke Energy and met with elected officials like US Senator Richard Blumenthal (pictured), CT State Representative Bill Buckbee and New Milford Mayor Pete Bass.
