On Monday, August 22nd, ITT Goulds Pumps President David Steblein and team, along with Shared Services leader, Robert Pagano, presented a check for $10,000 to the Seneca County House of Concern.  An organization that has been aiding the county of Seneca, NY community for over 50 years.

“It is our honor to support the House of Concern as their services are so essential to our community”, said President, Dave Steblein.  “Families are facing increasing struggles to feed their family, particularly since the COVID pandemic.  However, the struggle currently is exacerbated by the increasing cost of food that we are all seeing when doing our grocery shopping.  We have been a longtime supporter of the House of Concern and appreciate the tireless efforts of their team to ensure families have the food they need.”

Robert Pagano, Executive Director, Shared Services said, “many families are facing rapid changes in work force demand and rising costs of living, from fuel to groceries. These changes can unfortunately be the perfect storm for some families. I am proud we support the Seneca County House of Concern who make it their mission to help those experiencing hardships by providing food, clothing, and household items. The community is truly privileged to have this organization.”

The mission of the Seneca County House of Concern is to help those in need with basic necessities such as food, clothes and household items—and to treat everyone with dignity and respect. In October 2021, with the help of local government, residents and businesses, the House of Concern opened its new home in Waterloo. The space allows the organization to better serve its clients, expand its food pantry and operate a brighter, more welcoming thrift store for everyone that walks through its doors.

Bonafiglia Family gives $5,000 to House of Concern as need in Seneca County grows

This weekend marks what is typically referred to as the It’s A Wonderful Life Weekend in Seneca Falls.

A time in which the community celebrates its role as the inspiration behind Frank Capra’s Bedford Falls – the setting for his movie classic It’s A Wonderful Life. And while this year’s festival is being held virtually, the movie’s theme of the importance of family, and the strength of friends and neighbors is playing out in real life.

When a neighbor brought to light the recent call for help from the Seneca County House of Concern, The Bonafiglia Family knew that it was important to respond.
