Snelson Crew Fills Food Pantry Shelves

A Snelson crew filled empty shelves at a local food pantry.

The crews at Snelson Companies are not only focused on safe, quality fabrication, construction, and maintenance services for pipelines and pump stations throughout the United States and into Canada. They are also committed to giving back to the communities they serve. And that’s exactly what Snelson’s station crew in Monroe, Ohio, recently did by filling shelves with food and supplies at the Monroe First Church of God’s Need Network.

Monroe First Church of God’s Need Network provides food and supplies to those in need within the community and congregation. Every year, the Need Network serves hundreds of people with weekly food boxes.

Experts at Snelson Companies genuinely care about the communities they serve. This station crew generously gave a food and supplies donation to support the local Monroe, Ohio, community.

This year, Snelson wanted to be part of this worthy service. Superintendent Matt Sorenson and his team led this effort while working on a nearby Duke Energy project. Snelson employees purchased a generous amount of food and supplies – enough to fill the back seats and beds of two pick-up trucks.

“When we delivered items to the church, the shelves of the food pantry were nearly bare,” said Sorenson. “Now the shelves at the food pantry are full.”

This donation was fostered by Snelson’s Field Leadership Leading Indicator Program (FLLIP), which was designed to continually improve, support, and strengthen Snelson’s safety culture. One element of the program focuses on community outreach initiatives chosen, led, and fulfilled by each individual crew within their respective project communities.

“It is a great feeling knowing that we helped provide for these families in their time of need,” said Anthony Martin, Snelson’s Safety, Health and Environmental Supervisor.

“What a great program and wonderful result for families in the Monroe area!” said Amy Presson, Duke Energy Vice President of Major Projects for the Natural Gas Business Unit. “Thank you to your crew leadership and crew members for their willingness to be thoughtful and giving in the places that they work!”
