PTL team members have remained active outside of their respective roles within the company by giving back to their communities.
Out in the western region, tank wagon driver Russel P. volunteered his time to help the Southern Baptist Disaster Relief ash out crew in Colorado. More than 300 homes burned to the ground and the Russel joined the crews in helping remove the metal and ash from the sites in order to prepare for restoration.
Back in Texas, a team of PTL summer interns joined forces with the HR department and the Tarrant Area Food Bank to give out food to those in need within the Fort Worth community, regardless of their background or income.
More than 500 cars were filled with food on July 16, as the volunteers worked diligently to meet the high demand.
"People were filled with gratitude," said intern Chrystian R, undergrad studying human resources at the University of Texas at Dallas. "It felt great seeing people so happy to receive food for their loved ones."
PTL's corporate headquarters also played a role in providing the food through an ongoing, interoffice food drive asking for canned food and dry good donations throughout the summer.
On July 29, PTL team members at the corporate location will have another opportunity to assist as the LVTRise Mobile Pantry from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register to help.
These are only few real-world examples of PTL adhering to the PROUD principles: PASSION, RESPONSIBILITY, OUTSTANDING, UNITY and DEPENDABLE.
