MAPEI Corp. employees donate their time and effort to the Garland, Texas, community by volunteering at The Friendship House.

MAPEI Corp. employees in Garland, Texas, recently gave back to their community this past holiday season by donating their time and effort to Garland’s Friendship House. Three teams of volunteers prepared and distributed bags of grocery items for Thanksgiving meals and prepared gifts for distribution during Christmas.

The company’s multilingual volunteers also helped translate requests for some of Friendship House’s clients. One of the volunteer teams also helped collect and organize four pickup-truck loads of canned goods from a community school food drive.

“We have had a great time getting to know our neighbors better, and we really appreciate the chance to serve our community,” said Ed Ford, Unit Manager of MAPEI’s Garland manufacturing plant.
