Plastic Molding Technology (PMT) Inc. presented El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank with a $50,000 cumulative gift, on behalf of CEO and Owner Charles Sholtis and Training & Development Coordinator Mary Sholtis, on Tuesday, June 6, 2017.
Plastic Molding Technology Inc. manufactures precision-engineered, injection-molded plastic components, producing more than 150 million parts per year. The company provides a single-source solution from design engineering, prototyping and mold-sourcing to manufacturing, assembly and JIT delivery.
Charles and Mary Sholtis have been donors of the Food Bank for 12 years and feel the need to “make a positive difference in our community”.
"I saw firsthand how effective this organization is," Mary Sholtis said. "From the sheer volume of food processed here in El Paso, to the logistics and storage, to passing it into the hands of those in need, the organization is very successful and growing."
El Pasoans Fighting Hunger is able to serve more than 90,000 food insecure through community partners, such as PMT.
“We choose to support an organization working in El Paso for El Pasoans,” Charles Sholtis said. “El Pasoans Fighting Hunger is making huge strides in hunger relief in our area and we support their critical mission of ensuring no one goes hungry.”
One in every 4 children and 1 in every 8 adults are unsure of where their next meal will come from.
“Thanks to PMT’s significant philanthropy over the years, EPFH is better equipped to serve this community and have an instant impact on our mission of feeding the hungry,” Chief Executive Officer of El Pasoans Fighting Hunger, Victor Nevarez said. “We value their partnership of a shared vision of a hunger-free El Paso.”
