April 14, 2020 – (Dunkirk, NY & Utica, NY)  The employees of ECR International, Inc. would like to  say  “thank you” by brightening the day of those who work at two local healthcare facilities during these difficult times.  “It is important to recognize the heroes that are still showing up to work every day, potentially exposing themselves to harm, so they can tend to and care for our loved ones,” said Joe Langlois, Marketing Manager for ECR International.  “They deserve recognition for their dedication and compassion.”

To show appreciation, the employees of ECR International, Inc. have purchased over 150 pizzas as a way to say “thank you” to the workers at Brooks Memorial Hospital in Dunkirk, NY and Masonic Care Community in Utica, NY. The pizzas will be delivered to multiple locations on the properties throughout the day to accommodate workers on various shifts.  Pizza Village in Dunkirk and Rosario’s Pizzeria in East Utica also deserve recognition for both generously contributing to the pizza project by offering reduced pricing on the donated delivery. 

“Both facilities play a very important role in the communities we live and work in, “ said Don Decarr, Sr. Quality Analyst for ECR International. “This is our way of recognizing those that do so much for others.”
