Rothco Breaks Another Record With Holiday Charity Donations

For over a decade Rothco's team members have come together during the holiday season to raise money for local charities; and this year was no different. 

Here at Rothco we realize how fortunate we are and are always looking for ways to give back to the community we call home. That is why we take our holiday charity program so seriously. Each year we set out to beat last year's total contributions because we know how important it is for everyone to have a happy holiday and how far a dollar can go when you have your company matching the donations by 3X! 

And it is with great honor - I get to say WE DID IT!!!  With 136 of Rothco's employees donating towards 10 select local charities and Rothco matching those donations by 3X, together as a group we were able to raise over $200,000! 

A 100% of the $202,400 we raised as company was given to 10 local charities. Below is more information on the charities Rothco has donated. For more information on the listed charities - please check out their sites.
