L3Harris Technologies Inc. has partnered with Rochester’s Special Touch Bakery to support the region’s first responders.
In celebration of Pi Day on March 14, L3Harris donated $2,500 worth of locally made pies from Special Touch Bakery to 88 organizations across Rochester including Regional Transit Service, Rochester Police Department, Monroe County Sheriff’s Office and county-wide police and fire departments.
“We are honored to support the hard-working first responders across our area,” said L3Harris Process and Manufacturing Engineer Christopher Tumminelli. “Not only are they customers that rely on our communications technologies to get their jobs done, but the services they offer our community are so critically important, particularly during these uncertain times. This Pi Day donation is meant as a token of our gratitude.”
The Special Touch Bakery pies were delivered last weekend by a team of 40 volunteers employed by L3Harris.
“We are so pleased that our pies (were) donated to hard-working first responders in our area,” said Joe Perdicho, director of operations at Special Touch Bakery. “Through this effort, L3Harris is not only showing support for these vital organizations, but they are also helping to provide meaningful employment opportunities to people of all abilities at Special Touch Bakery.”
Special Touch Bakery is a nonprofit that provides skill-building and employment opportunities to people of all abilities. The bakery provides a variety of craft-made, premium pies to wholesale and retail customers nationwide and is an operation of School of the Holy Childhood, a local nonprofit that serves more than 200 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in its school program and in its adult program.
