Comstar Supply Focuses on Giving Back

Over the last eight years, Comstar Supply, as well as the entire Punchard family, have placed an importance on giving back to the community.

Each year, the company participates in a number of annual programs such as a Thanksgiving appeal for our local Collegeville, PA, community, and the Salvation Army Give-A-Gift Angel Tag Program, to name a few. We’ve also run two incredibly successful golf tournaments in honor of our founder, Earl Punchard, with all proceeds directed to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).

This year our commitment to giving seems even more important given the uncertainty we are all facing due to the pandemic. Over the past three months, the entire Comstar family has come together to support organizations focused on assisting families.

In August, Comstar delivered food, cleaning supplies, self-care, and infant items to the Daily Bread (PA) FoodPantry. It was the culmination of a weeks-long, internal team building event where we donated more than 520 pounds of goods to area families in need.

Last month, the company participating in the CHOP Parkway Virtual Run fundraiser. Throughout September, employees gathered donations to help support the hospital in their effort to better understand childhood cancer and develop new treatments – all with the goal of finding a cure.

And in October, the company made a corporate donation to A Better Chance, an organization whose goal is to change the life trajectory of academically talented youth of color in grades 6-12 through access to rigorous and prestigious educational opportunities.

“I’m incredibly proud of not only the business we continue to build, but also our philanthropic work that helps benefit others,” commented Comstar President Chad Punchard.
