LONG ISLAND CITY, N.Y. — Arista Air Conditioning Corp., a Mechanical Service Contractors of America (MSCA) member company located in Long Island City, New York, partnered with Convoy of Hope to organize a charitable event to replace its annual fall company meeting. This event took place in October, where 122 participants came out and packed more that 4,200 hygiene kits that will go to communities and people in need worldwide. Volunteering a total of 244 hours of work, Arista’s employees put their skills and passion towards a great cause.
“I had been feeling that as a company we have such a strong, skilled, hard working group that it was a shame we couldn’t leverage that and give back in some meaningful way’” said Scott Berger, president of Arista.
While this was Arista’s first charitable event like this, they aren’t ready to stop just yet. Arista will be sending 12 employees on a week-long field trip in Puerto Rico this January to help rebuild homes that were ravaged during hurricane Maria in conjunction with Convoy of Hope.
“I think everyone at Arista felt good about the work we did and what we accomplished,” noted Berger.
MSCA and Convoy of Hope have a longstanding partnership and have worked together for the past nine years to “give back” in the community where the annual education conference is held. This year in Huntington Beach, California, MSCA will be lending at hand at a local community health center, Share Our Selves, and delivering a tractor trailer full of needed supplies to the organization.
