In following our Diamond Disciplines, members of the TyRex Family regularly give back to the community through various volunteer and service projects throughout the year. Below are some of the efforts undertaken in 2014:
Back To School Project (2014)
Thanks to the efforts of several generous members of the TyRex family during our Back To School Drive (Aug. 22), five students will be sponsored with a complete week’s worth of clothes each, including five complete outfits, a new pair of shoes and a backpack during the upcoming school year. Thank you to Angela Roush for coordinating and to everyone who took part!
Capital Area Food Bank Drive (2014)
Over three weeks in April and May, TyRex employees brought cans, jars and boxes of food to donate to the 2014 Kids’ Cafe Food Drive at Capital Area Food Bank. When all was said and done, the TyRex Family collectively made an incredible contribution to the drive; the vegetables, cereal, soup, and more added up to a whopping 453 pounds! Our efforts will help in providing 378 meals to the estimated 48,000 Central Texans served by the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas each week. Special thanks to Judy Rock for coordinating this drive!
Swimsuit Drive for Austin Children’s Shelter (2014)
In an effort to help bring a fun-filled summer to Austin-area children recovering from abuse and neglect, TyRex family members joined together to donate 33 brand new swimsuits, swim goggles, inflatable pool toys, sunscreen, floaties, cash and more to Austin Children’s Shelter. Four tickets to the Schlitterbahn Water Park in New Braunfels were also donated. Thanks to Judy Rock for coordinating and to everyone who donated!
Blood Drive for Blood & Tissue Center (2014)
Our second blood drive of the year for the Blood & Tissue Center of Central Texas resulted in over 19 pints of blood being donated. As always, a big thanks to CarlosMojica for coordinating!
