Kresge Services, Inc. prides itself on giving back to the community! It is a great feeling to have such a close relationship with our community. In a town where you know half the people shopping at the food market while you are there, it would be hard not to have community running through our veins.
Kresge Services loves to support programs for the youth in our community. Kresge supported the DARE program and threw big pizza parties as a congratulations for the kids. Our office is a local drop-off location for Toys for Tots.
There is no better way to smile, laugh and celebrate in our town than a parade! Kresge is an annual sponsor for the Halloween Parade that features the famous Shriner cars, Girl Scout and Boy Scout Troops and local businesses! We are also happy to be a band sponsor!
Take me out to the ballgame!
Kresge is a great supporter of community ball fields as well. As America’s favorite past time, how could you say no to lend a helping hand! We have donated our time, expertise and bucket truck services to help out the local fields. From repairing and maintaining field lighting, repairing electric in concession stands, to hanging scoreboards, we are a community leader in the game! Play ball!
The grand marshal of the Jim Thorpe 2021 Halloween Parade was business owner Shawn Kresge of Kresge Services.
We’re Proud to Serve Our Community
Kresge Services is pleased to donate our services and monetary contributions to local VFW establishments, fire companies, the Leukemia Foundation…etc. throughout the business year. Without local support, this community would not be as tight knit as we are.
We recently hung flags using our bucket truck at the Jim Thorpe Memorial.
In 2022, Kresge Launched Kresge Cares
Kresge Cares is a way for the community to vote for their favorite local charities in a friendly competition. Kresge Services awards each of three charities with monetary donations with different amounts for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place determined by the number of votes they receive.
Watch our Facebook page and this website for further information about our next Kresge Cares competition.
The Season for Giving Thanks – Kresge has donated hundreds of turkeys from Koch’s Turkey Farm to local charities. We’ve also donated our services hanging Christmas lights in Jim Thorpe.
