Cornerstone Superstar: E.J. Prescott Company
Headquartered in Gardiner, E.J. Prescott Company (EJP) has been providing quality products and services to the water industry for over 60 years. Throughout EJP’s history, helping people and organizations in need has always been an essential part of the company’s culture.
EJP has partnered with United Way of Kennebec Valley (UWKV) for more than 30 years. Through a successful employee giving effort, the company has pledged to contribute a total of $81,483 in 2019—7 percent more than its previous campaign.
This contribution again positions EJP as one of United Way’s 12 Cornerstone Partners, which collectively make up more than 53 percent of UWKV’s annual campaign. These companies most recently contributed more than $900,000 to the Kennebec Valley community. With EJP’s support, United Way increased its overall total by 5 percent, raising a record-breaking $1,745,000 for 48 local nonprofit organizations.
EJP specializes in water, wastewater and storm water material distribution, serving New England, New York, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Ohio and Indiana. The company prides itself on lending a hand whenever it is needed. Past efforts have included hosting food, clothing and supply drives in the aftermath of the 9/11 Attacks and Hurricane Katrina.
EJP is a founding partner of Day of Caring, United Way’s annual event that connects student volunteers from 17 local schools with work projects throughout Kennebec Valley. The company provides outdoor grills and lends EJP employees to conduct celebratory outdoor barbecues for students and staff in many schools.
In addition, EJP hosts the United Way’s Food Pantry Project, for which employees generously collect non-perishable items to donate to local food banks. Several EJP employees have also served on United Way’s Board of Directors, committing time and energy to ensure UWKV’s long-term success.
