The board of directors of Trinity Metals, an Indianapolis-based wholesaler, processor and trader of nonferrous metals, specialty metals and e-scrap, has presented the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels, a nonprofit based in Louisville, Kentucky, with $100,000 from the Trinity Metals Foundation. The funds will be applied to the Kentucky Colonels’ $2 million challenge for emergency relief and rebuilding efforts following December’s tornados in western Kentucky.
Trinity's board of directors has directed that up to 5 percent of the company’s annual profits be donated to fund charities such as the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels, Wheeler Mission and local food banks, as well as trade school, college and university scholarships.
“Since being commissioned a Kentucky Colonel, I have been impressed with the range of people the Honorable Order helps and the lengths its trustees go to ensure every dollar contributed makes a big impact,” says Trinity Metals CEO Wade Conner. “The commonwealth of Kentucky has always been an important part of the Trinity success story, and it is only fitting that we support the tornado relief effort with our best efforts.”
On hand with Conner to present the $100,000 check was fellow board member and Kentucky Colonel Michael Dannenmaier, representing Trinity Metals board members Monika Conner and Hari Agrawal, as well as Senior General Manager Brian Holcomb, also a member of the Kentucky Colonels. Conner and Dannenmaier were in Madisonville, Kentucky, to participate in the Kentucky Colonels’ spring Day of Service.
Sherry Crose, executive director of the Kentucky Colonels, said, “The generosity of Trinity Metals and its foundation inspires the Honorable Order to carry on the 85-year tradition of helping those in need. On behalf of our trustees and Kentucky Colonels around the world, I thank you.”
