Ductmate Industries, Charleroi, PA will be donating more than $12,000 to the local Marine Corps Reserve Toys For Tots and the Pittsburgh division of the Make-A-Wish Foundation this 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.
Ductmate will also be donating to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. An 8-year-old boy will be granted his wish this holiday season. His wish was to travel out west and visit a ghost town and a dude ranch.
This is the third wish that Ductmate has granted in three years. In 2004, a young boy was able to meet his NASCAR hero Dale Jarrett; and in 2005, a young girl spent the holidays at Walt Disney World Resort.
Ductmate Industries, Inc. was established in 1978 and has locations in Monongahela and Charleroi, Pa., and Lodi, Calif. The company has an established and experienced work force of about 250 employees.
