PTR Celebrates ‘Giving Tuesday’ with Visit & Donation to Edison High School
Today, PTR President & CEO Mike Savage and Vice President of Manufacturing Garry Fudala, made a special visit to Edison High School in Philadelphia. ‘Giving Tuesday’ was the perfect opportunity to donate welding supplies to the Philadelphia Technical School’s vocational training class. Edison High School teaches students invaluable vocational trades, such as hydraulics and welding. These are the skills necessary to create tomorrow’s workforce- today. What better day than ‘Giving Tuesday’, to make a contribution towards the future of our country’s prosperity and the success of the next generation? PTR Baler & Compactor Company is extremely proud to be part of the local community. We strive to continually find more ways to give back to those who helped make us as successful as we are today.
‘Giving Tuesday’ was established back in 2012. It’s celebrated across the world as a day to give back and make a difference in our communities. No donation or good deed is too small or insignificant. The word is spread through the power of social media using the hashtag #GivingTuesday. After the mass consumerism that occurs on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, ‘Giving Tuesday’ is a great way to spark the true spirit of the holiday season. It’s the perfect time to support your favorite charities, donate to local food banks, shelters and schools, or find other ways to get involved and lend a hand.
Looking for ways to give back in the Philadelphia area? Mayor Jim Kenney encourages people to donate directly to Philadelphia school through a new site, ‘Philly FUNDamentals’. Donate and learn more here.
