Pilot Chemical Company teamed up with Matthew 25: Ministries on October 5 to sort and inspect clothing for those in need. Seven employees from Pilot volunteered as part of Pilot’s annual Environmental Health Safety and Security (EHS&S) Conference.
“As EHS&S professionals, we are responsible for protecting our communities and the environment, so this was a natural fit for our team,” said Hayley Lauterbur, corporate safety leader at Pilot. “It is important work and deeply meaningful to our team to have had the opportunity to work with Matthew 25: Ministries to help our community and the areas that need it most.”
Pilot volunteers included: Kelly Coleman, Middletown, Ohio; Ollie Turner, Lockland, Ohio; Michele Smith, Mason, Ohio; Hayley Lauterbur, Blue Ash, Ohio; Natasha Walcott, Chicago, Ill.; Demetrius Nettles, Avenel, N.J.; and Roy Loe, Houston, Texas.
Matthew 25: Ministries rescues and reuses approximately 15,000,000 pounds of products from major corporations and manufacturers each year. The organization then redistributes those items to people in desperate need throughout the U.S. and worldwide.
“We are so thankful for our volunteers who support our processing center,” said Shelly Clos, volunteer coordinator with Matthew 25: Ministries. “For every hour of time donated, a volunteer helps approximately 150 people.”
