The Brand Promise of our buying groups is "Stronger Together".

But, what does that mean?

It means we work together as one to get better traction in the industry. It means when one dealer needs a piece of equipment ASAP, another dealer is willing to sell it to them. It means we come together annually at Conferences to build upon our friendships and relationships – We share tips, advice, and an occasional (maybe more) beer together. It means “together we can face any challenge as deep as the ocean and as high as the sky”.

With the recent devastation from Hurricane Harvey, we have learned of many employees of our members who have been critically affected. Some have lost their homes, cars and keepsakes...evacuated by boat and now "living" in shelters with their families.

Today we humbly, yet proudly, ask of you - please take a moment to donate to the affected employees of our members via this campaign. Every donation impacts the life of one of our own, no matter if it’s $5 or $500. 100% of the proceeds will be dispersed in 2 weeks’ time to those most affected. 

To kick off the campaign - Excell and NISSCO have pledged $1000. Randy and Michelle Brunschwig have personally pledged $500. William and Shellie McBride have personally pledged $1000 in matching funds for the first $1000 donated by our members. Shane and Nicole Cloud have personally pledged $1000.

Help us reach $20,000 in 2 weeks!

Do you have an employee that was critically affected that would greatly benefit from a share of the collected funds? Please don’t hesitate to nominate them here.

Do you know a shelter in the affected area that could benefit from a large donation of blankets from our non-profit, Cooking Up Better Lives? Submit their information here.

We will periodically add the stories and updates from members in or near the flood zone.

Alone we are strong, but together we are stronger.


Sincerely,


The Excell and NISSCO Management Team,
Cooking Up Better Lives
