KO Alum Gives Back

In response to the need for personal protective equipment in Connecticut, NEFCO Corporation, an East Hartford based construction distributor donated 5,000 N95 masks to Hartford Hospital. NEFCO CEO David Gelles '72 says he was honored to help frontline workers when he heard about the needs of local hospitals.

"I grew up in Hartford, I raised my family in Hartford. On behalf of the Gelles family and the broader NEFCO family of 350 associates, we are honored to play a role in supporting the heroic nurses, doctors and first responders as they fight against this awful virus." He says he made it his crusade to source masks from all over the world.

Gelles' grandson, Jordan Cipriano is a member of the class of 2026.
