SHEBOYGAN — In the spirit of World Kindness Day Nov. 13, the team at PSCO Kieffer in Sheboygan came together to make a positive impact on the lives of local Sheboygan families in need.
Through their initiative, the team collected an array of essential baby items for BabyCare, a local outreach organization through Sheboygan County Food Bank that provides underserved families with critical baby supplies.
The PSCO Kieffer team donated a range of baby essentials, including diapers, wipes, clothing, toys and feeding supplies.
This marks the second straight year PSCO Kieffer has gathered donations tying in with the mission of World Kindness Day. BabyCare supports more than 200 families each month.
Established in the 1950s as Kieffer & Co. in Sheboygan, PSCO Kieffer designs, value engineers, manages code review and permitting, fabrication, installation management and maintenance requests as a single-source sign provider.
