Lolita, TX – March 24, 2020 – As part of Inteplast Group’s 30th Anniversary this year the company is donating $1,000 each to 30 charitable organizations to strengthen its partnerships that makes the surrounding communities strong and vibrant. The donations come after the region’s recent unprecedented and deadly winter storm. Three of Inteplast Group’s donations among the 30 charities begins in Texas but throughout the year will include the community charities near its other North American locations.
Inteplast Group President Dr. John Young noted the importance of community outreach, especially with the effects of the pandemic on families, local business, and the elderly.
“We are fortunate to have been designated ‘essential’ in a year of pandemic and economic meltdown. We have much to thank, not only our colleagues for the heroic and selfless effort they each put in to overcome every imaginable challenge in order to service our customers, but also the many local communities and our neighbors for their support and for their selfless dedication to the citizens they serve—we among them. I cannot think of a more appropriate gesture of good will than to demonstrate our gratitude through charity as part of our 30th Year Anniversary celebration,” said Dr. Young.
For the first three donations, the Inteplast Group Lolita facility has sent $1,000 each to Helping Hands of Jackson County, Food Bank of the Golden Crescent (covering 11 surrounding counties), and Mid-Coast Family Services.
Dan Martino, senior director of Texas Administration, said, “These three great organizations lend significant support to the residents across our region. Helping Hands provides many items, from clothing to food to utilities support. The Food Bank of the Golden Crescent purchases low cost food items, many times as surplus materials, and makes it all accessible to thousands of residents across the region. Mid-Coast Family Services makes available housing and rental assistance, manages a women’s crisis center, and provides many other services for those in need. We’re honored to give back in some way for all they’ve given our communities.”
In addition, Inteplast locations in Phoenix coordinated a special collection for the Lolita employees. That money is going to the Food Bank. Martino Marketing Group (coincidentally sharing Dan’s surname) a marketing agency that works with Inteplast also sent a donation to help employees and our local communities impacted by the storm. That money, along with the Inteplast Group donation, is going to Jackson County Helping Hands.
