Keeney in the Community

The Keeney Manufacturing Company, and its employees, support the communities that they live and work in by giving back. Keeney is dedicated to being an active and involved member of the community. The Keeney Manufacturing Company has the privilege to partner with our customers to support the organizations they are dedicated to and with our employees in support of organizations close to home.

Annually, The Keeney Manufacturing Company sponsors the Newington Library 5K Challenge. All proceeds from the 5K Challenge benefit the Lucy Robbins Welles Library.

On a monthly basis, The Keeney Manufacturing Company sponsors a Dress Down Day in support of a local charity. The employees are able to dress to impress in their favorite Keeney casual clothing, including jeans, and in exchange for their comfort they contribute monetary donations to the charity of the month. Upon tallying the employee donation, The Keeney Manufacturing Company then matches the donations to double what the charity will receive. A few of the charities that have benefited are:

  • Child Guidance For Central Connecticut
  • New Britain, CT Museum of American Art
  • The March of Dimes
  • The Hole in the Wall Gang Fund, Inc.
  • Wounded Warrior Project
  • Newington, CT Volunteer Fire Department
  • Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation
  • Interval House
  • Shriners Hospital for Children
  • Newington, CT Food Bank
  • The Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research Foundation
