RIS - Charitable Contributions
When you do business with Rochester Industrial Services you can take pride knowing that a portion is used to help grant a wish to a terminally ill child.
Rochester Industrial Service prides itself on its commitment to giving back to the community. We believe that charitable contributions make a positive impact on the world and help improve the lives of those around us.
We’ve been heavily involved with the Make-A-Wish Foundation since 2018.
Each year we attend and participate in the 1000 Islands International Poker Run. This amazing event helps raise money and awareness for the foundation. It’s an event that features a display of high-end boats, a banquet dinner, an auction, and various other activities with the goal of granting a wish to a terminally ill child. By regularly supporting their mission, we hope to inspire others to give back to the community and make a difference in the lives of those in need.
Each year, we are proud to serve as a Gold Sponsor and are consistently the largest company in attendance. We not only attend these events, but we also donate items to be a part of the auction. In 2022, we brought in a local artist to participate. This had never been done before at a Make-a-Wish event and created a ton of excitement. The artist created a beautiful painting of the child and her mother overlooking the St. Lawrence Seaway. The painting was donated and helped raise $25,000 for the foundation.
At Rochester Industrial Service, we believe in giving back to our community, which is why we are thrilled to do our part in fundraising and adding to the overall success of these events. We are already looking forward to next year!
