LEBANON, Pa. — As part of their centennial year celebration, APR Supply Co. has set the goal of their teammates giving back to the communities in which they conduct business by donating 100 Days’ worth of community service through an internal program called 100 Days of Giving.
APR Supply Co.’s 100 Days of Giving strives to honor the local communities in which we live and work through the donation of volunteer hours. The program encourages employees to become involved and to give their voluntary support to programs which positively impact the quality of life within the community. APR will reimburse team members who donate their time to a non-profit organization, up to eight hours per fiscal year. The goal is for each location and department to donate at least two days, or 16 hours, to their local community.
To kick off the initiative, two members of the APR Supply Co. marketing department volunteered with the Junior Achievement Program (JA) of South-Central PA to teach STEM skills and resume writing to local 7th and 8th graders. The JA YES! Program utilizes community volunteers to work within middle schools to prepare students for the importance of financial and career decisions they will face as young adults.
Founded in 1922 as Lebanon Plumbing Supply, APR Supply Co. is now guided by third generation owner, President and CEO Scott Weaver. Since its inception, APR Supply Co. has grown from a single location to 38 branches and nine Oasis Kitchen and Bath Showrooms throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. Their headquarters remains in Lebanon County, and most recently moved to Joel Drive where their main distribution center boasts over 350,000 square feet of storage.
