Giving back to our community is good for business. It’s a great way to get exposure for a company and to promote products or services. But, giving back isn’t about what you get in return, it’s about who you are helping.
Here at Coller Industries, we understand that when we are helping those in our community, the best thing we get back is that feeling of knowing you helped someone. Investing in the community by donating our products is one of our best forms of marketing. But again, it isn’t just about the marketing possibilities, it’s about the people. Even when the need is small, like for a BSA Eagle Scout project, it’s still important to us.
So, here’s our shout-out to Matt Pellegrini and what he’s doing in his community.
Coller Industries: Tell us about your project. What is the main goal?
Mr. Pellegrini: “The main goal of my project is to help the Enfield High School Drumline, which I am a part of. I have built a large shelf system for the drumline to store drums, cases, stands and harnesses. Right now, in the area where we will be placing the shelf, the drumline has all the drums inside their respective cases on the floor. It is very disorganized, and with the cases laying on the floor it takes up a lot of space. This shelf will keep everything that the drumline needs off the floor and organized.”
Coller Industries: How will the name plate donation help your project?
Mr. Pellegrini: “I am looking to have name plates and metal wall mounts donated to go on the shelf. These name plates will show the drummers where they can store their drums. This donation will help because I have only raised roughly $1,500 through family and friends donating to the project. Any additional donation or discount is appreciated.
“This project is an Eagle Scout project which, if you didn’t know, is the last step in a Boy Scout’s journey through the BSA Scouting program. I am a part of the school’s drumline and know that our music department doesn’t have enough money to buy a shelf along with sending us to several competitions every year. So, I thought this would be the perfect project!
“I am a senior at Enfield High School, and I feel this something I can do for the school along with leaving a little piece of myself behind after I graduate this spring.”

Understanding the community concept teaches that no matter the setting, there are things which must be done to keep it healthy. These insights are supported and managed by people feeling that they belong somewhere. And this comes with accepting each other and the diversity of those around you. This community understanding makes us responsible for those around us. In turn, this community responsibility not only aids those in need, but it assists everyone influenced by any actions in that community.
Donations are one way that makes us more responsible in our community. And, building trust in our community is not only a requirement but also the best way to maintain any community. This is why we, as a company, are always looking to help out in our neighborhood and surrounding areas.
