The Aubuchon Foundation is donating more than $100,000 to COVID-19 relief funds throughout the various communities the company serves across the northeast U.S.
The charitable organization says the funds will be split between numerous COVID-19 relief organizations, including The Massachusetts COVID-19 Relief Fund, The Maine Community Foundation COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund, The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation Community Crisis Action Fund, The Adirondack Foundation Special Urgent Needs Fund and The Vermont Community Foundation COVID-19 Response Fund.
“It’s a privilege to provide much-needed assistance to those individuals most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Will Aubuchon, president and CEO of W.E. Aubuchon Co., Inc. “I’m especially thankful for our fantastic vendor partners, who graciously donated their sponsorship commitments to our annual Aubuchon Foundation golf tournament, even though we were forced to cancel the event this year. With their added support we were able to make more meaningful donations to all of these relief funds.”
As an essential retailer, all W.E. Aubuchon Company store locations have remained open with adjusted hours and intensive COVID-19 safety and sanitizing protocols. For maximum safety and convenience, all locations offer buy online, pickup in store services alongside curbside pickup options.
Aubuchon Hardware owns and operates 102 locations throughout New England and upstate New York, as well as Lyndonville Hardware & Lumber in Lyndonville, Vermont. The company was founded in 1908 by William E. Aubuchon, Sr.
