When Arnold and Larry Kovalsky, of Kovalsky Carr Electric Supply Company, Inc., were discussing what type of holiday gift to purchase for the hundreds of clients with whom they do business, they wanted an alternative to the traditional box of chocolates or holiday plant.

“We spend a significant amount of money on these types of gifts each year. We wanted to come up with an idea that had a deeper purpose and would have a positive impact on our community,” said Arnold Kovalsky. 

They made the decision to support patient care and cancer research at the Wilmot Cancer Center by donating $10,000 in honor of their clients. For them, this truly was the ‘season of giving.’

“The positive feedback we received was tremendous. It truly makes us feel good - that we can make a difference in the lives of those people in our community who are dealing with a cancer diagnosis,” said Kovalsky.
