Trinity Metals supports tornado relief in Kentucky

The Indianapolis-based company donated $100,000 through its foundation.

The board of directors of Trinity Metals, an Indianapolis-based wholesaler, processor and trader of nonferrous metals, specialty metals and e-scrap, has presented the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels, a nonprofit based in Louisville, Kentucky, with $100,000 from the Trinity Metals Foundation. The funds will be applied to the Kentucky Colonels’ $2 million challenge for emergency relief and rebuilding efforts following December’s tornados in western Kentucky.

Trinity’s board of directors has directed that up to 5 percent of the company’s annual profits be donated to fund charities such as the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels, Wheeler Mission and local food banks, as well as trade school, college and university scholarships.

“Since being commissioned a Kentucky Colonel, I have been impressed with the range of people the Honorable Order helps and the lengths its trustees go to ensure every dollar contributed makes a big impact,” says Trinity Metals CEO Wade Conner. “The commonwealth of Kentucky has always been an important part of the Trinity success story, and it is only fitting that we support the tornado relief effort with our best efforts.”

On hand with Conner to present the $100,000 check was fellow board member and Kentucky Colonel Michael Dannenmaier, representing Trinity Metals board members Monika Conner and Hari Agrawal, as well as Senior General Manager Brian Holcomb, also a member of the Kentucky Colonels. Conner and Dannenmaier were in Madisonville, Kentucky, to participate in the Kentucky Colonels’ spring Day of Service.

Sherry Crose, executive director of the Kentucky Colonels, said, “The generosity of Trinity Metals and its foundation inspires the Honorable Order to carry on the 85-year tradition of helping those in need. On behalf of our trustees and Kentucky Colonels around the world, I thank you.”

Kentucky Colonels Tornado Relief Single Barrel Project to Raise Nearly $50,000 with Two Indiana Businesses.

As the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels continues to raise and distribute disaster relief funds, recent help came from a seemingly unlikely source. Two Indianapolis businesses – Trinity Metals and Hotel Tango Distillery – are teaming up to provide not one or two, but three barrels of Bourbon that the Colonels will sell to their contributing members. All proceeds from the sale of 648 bottles will be directed to organizations assisting victims of the December tornadoes.

“Kentucky Colonels’ generosity is always amazing and when Trinity Metals, Wade Conner and his team, approached the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels about this partnership with Hotel Tango, we were amazed once again,” said Colonel Sherry Crose, Executive Director of the Honorable Order. “We are honored to share these three hand-selected barrels with lucky Colonels country-wide. This is the first partnership of this kind in our history. Because the Colonels gave, we expect to raise more than $50,000 to lift up those in western Kentucky who lost so much.”

“Trinity Metals is honored to support the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels by sponsoring this Fundraiser with Hotel Tango for the Kentucky Tornado Relief Effort,” said Trinity Metals CEO Colonel Wade Conner. “The Commonwealth of Kentucky has always been an important part of the Trinity success story and it is only fitting that we support the tornado relief effort with our best efforts. The Board of Trustees of the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels has the connections and networks in place to put our charitable dollars to work far more effectively than we ever could. It is an honor for us to be able to contribute to this good work.”
