Tyler Pipe Donates 1,514 Pounds of Food to People Attempting to Help (PATH)
January 6, 2014
Tyler Pipe participated in the PATH canned food during the holidays for the third year in a row. Tyler Pipe General Manager Greg Simmons urged team members once again to open their hearts and their cupboards to try an reach a new goal in 2013.
The first year Tyler participated in the food drive, they collected 1,463 pounds, but the following year that number dropped to 823 pounds. To support team members in this effort, Greg agreed to match the contribution dollar for pound. In other words, for every pound of food team members donated, Greg donated a dollar to PATH.
On a wet and dreary Friday the 13th, the containers were transferred over to the Wade Warehouse and weighed and Tyler HR Manager Faye Pettigrew could hardly wait to tell Greg that he would need to write a check for $1,514, which he was happy to do.
Thanks to all of the Tyler team members that participated in this year's canned food drive and congratulations on reaching a new high. There is already talk of a new challenge for next year's event - ONE TON!
