Although Aquiline Drones in Hartford is currently creating powerful industry partnerships around the globe, America's fastest growing drone and cloud technology company never forgets its local roots! Founded by life-long Newington resident Barry Alexander and comprised of a staff in which 50% of employees also reside in town, Aquiline Drones recently offered a helping hand to the Town of Newington's Food Bank by having its employees collect and drive turkey meals to those in need as part of Newington's town-wide Annual Thanksgiving collection.
"Taking a few hours out of the workday to donate both the time and talent of our staff to such a beneficial human services organization is a no-brainer," said Barry Alexander, Founder and CEO of Aquiline Drones. "We are only as successful as the community which sustains us and while we are in the process of changing the drone landscape across the world, we are never too busy to assist our local region in whatever capacity necessary."
Specifically, Terry Borjeson-VP of Public Affairs, Cathy Dionne-Director of Business Development and Emily Guion-Director of Operations, Purchasing and Facilities manned a 2-hour shift on Thursday, November 19, 2020, which consisted of collecting and distributing food at external drop off points around the Newington Town Hall, as well as packaging and delivering food to homebound, impoverished residents.
More than 400 turkey meals were collected and delivered during the day.
Other local charity events in which Aquiline Drones has recently sponsored and participated include the 9th Annual Newington Rotary Lemonade Golf Tournament, the 9th Annual American Council of Engineering Companies of Connecticut Golf Outing and numerous others throughout 2020.
"This year more than ever, people are experiencing economic loss and financial hardship which is compounded even more so over the holidays," adds Alexander. "Despite the chaos caused by COVID-19, America is still the land of plenty, and everyone deserves to enjoy a healthy and hearty turkey dinner on the Thanksgiving holiday."
