The Carlisle Companies’ 2015 Fund Raising efforts recently culminated in a $20,000 donation to Penelope House.

Throughout the year, the Carlisle staff held raffles, bake sales and other events to benefit Penelope House. By the end of the year, the staff had raised $10,000, with the help of key corporate partners. Donnie and Deborah Carlisle matched the amount raised and a check for $20,000 was presented to Tonie Ann Torrans, Executive Director of Penelope House.

At the presentation, Donnie stated he was very proud of the staff and grateful for the company’s corporate partners. “It takes many stars to form a galaxy. Look at what we have accomplished by coming together as one,” stated Donnie.

The Carlisle Companies proudly support Penelope House, whose mission is “to provide safety, protection and support to the victims of Domestic Violence and their children through the provision of shelter, advocacy and individual and community education.”
