Rothco's Football Friday and Employee of the Month

Last year, Rothco and its employees donated nearly a quarter of a million dollars to local charities. Giving back to the community is something that Howard and Milton Somberg have engrained into the very foundation of Rothco's company culture. We're all very proud of the donations that we make as individual employees as well as the total contribution that Rothco donates every year.

Representatives from 3 of the Charities Rothco Supports
Today, we held our monthly Employee of the Month ceremony, as we do every month; but today it was a little bit different. For starters, we had representatives from three of the charities we support come and speak on behalf of the families and individuals they help. (You can find a full list of charities Rothco donates to on our website.) It was a heartwarming reminder of the good these charities are doing in supporting their communities.

Besides our guest speakers and the Employee of the Month ceremony, there was one other thing that made this Friday stand out even further. Today, at Rothco, was dubbed "Football Friday" which is a sort of "casual Friday" where employees were allowed to wear their favorite sports teams' jersey to work and for each jersey worn, Rothco would donate $10 towards the Holiday Charity Program. 138 employees wore sports jerseys (yes we included baseball and hockey) and so Rothco donated an additional $1,380 to the growing Holiday Charity Fund. It was great to see the entire company rally together as a team!
