At Preiss, we view ourselves and each other as part of an extended family. We band together to raise awareness, funds and help those in need.

Last week, Hurricane Harvey ravaged parts of Texas leaving a large path of destruction and thousands of people in need of immediate assistance. It’s times like these that we ask ourselves we can do together to contribute and provide help.

Our family, like most families, is incredibly diverse. We all have our own passions, dreams, hobbies and interests, with our passion for our jobs and PCO family remaining the same. We realize that there are a seemingly endless number of charitable organizations and fundraisers to choose from, all with different causes and missions but with the same goal; to provide help.

When exploring ways to help, it was truly impossible to select one recipient in which to direct our contributions. In the end, we decided to provide a list, provide the information, and give the choice.

Preiss team members across the country will be giving what they can and how they wish.

 

All that we ask, is that they let us know what they’ve contributed…
so that we can match it. 

 

We’ve posted our list below to share with all of you in hopes that you will also share this information; inspiring others to do the same. If you have a cause or organization that you would like to add to our list, please e-mail info@tpco.com.

“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” – Mother Theresa 

Just imagine how many ripples can be created with a multitude of stones.
