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.”
