Companies that Matter are committed to thriving communities. When hard times hit communities, as they have in the southern part of the United States, it is often difficult to know how to respond. But not for Lube-Tech.
For the past several years, Lube-Tech has committed their time, energy and resources to investing in the health of Twin Cities families. Bringing together teams of smart, talented and passionate people isn’t just reserved for their business. Racing to pack MATTERboxes for the local community is just as important!
Lube Tech’s involvement with MATTERbox this year wasn’t just in service for our local community, but for families suffering loss and hardship in Houston following the devastating hurricane.
“As we all watched the devastation that Hurricane Harvey left in Texas, we knew we had to do something. Then we were blown away by the fury of Hurricane Irma. This is the third annual Race to End Hunger at Lube-Tech, and this year we are packing the MATTERboxes for the residents of Texas. We hope these boxes will provide hope as they begin to rebuild, and that they know we are thinking of them in Minnesota. MATTER is an organization that continues to evolve and makes a tremendous impact locally and worldwide. They truly help others live a full and healthy life, which perfectly aligns with our belief to make tomorrow better than today for our customers, employees, and communities.” – Amy Jo Van Culin, Bame Foundation/Philanthropy Manager at Lubrication Technologies Inc.
Seven teams of dedicated employees brought an extra dose of energy and enthusiasm to this year’s competition-style packing event at Lube-Tech, providing more than 3,000 healthy meals to send to our friends in the south. As the competition gained intensity, the true goal was never forgotten.
But, Lube-Tech didn’t stop there. Early the next week, they partnered with MATTER, playing a pivotal role in providing for the logistics of delivering the packed MATTERboxes, along with needed medical supplies, to MATTER partners on the ground in Houston. This is how a Company that Matters responds to community needs. We are proud to partner with Lube-Tech in fulfilling our mission of increasing access to health here at home, across the nation, and around the world.
