CHARLEROI, Pa. - Ductmate Industries donated over $12,000 to the local Marine Corps Reserve Toys For Tots and the Pittsburgh division of the Make-A-Wish Foundation this past holiday season.

Ductmate has been the largest contributor to the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots in the Mid Mon Valley for the past six years. This division of Toys for Tots averages 1,000 children and 12,000 toys each Christmas.

“I call Ductmate when I need help,” said Wally Fronzaglio, local coordinator for the Mid Mon Valley Toys for Tots.

Ductmate also donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, granting an eight-year-old boy his holiday wish to travel out West, visiting a ghost town and a dude ranch. “Children are our future, and America is the land of opportunity,” said Ray Yeager, Ductmate president. “With these in mind, children’s charities gives Ductmate and its employees a way to not only share in our good fortune, but provide a chance for children to prosper.”
