Local Company Donates to Non-Profits

Posted: Updated:

PINEVILLE, La. -- Four Pineville non-profits received a big donation from a local company Tuesday.

Plastipak Packaging, a Michigan company with a plant in Pineville, split a $25,000 donation between the Pineville Youth Center, Helping Hands Ministries, Family Helping Families and the Pineville Youth Basketball League.

The company says its all part of their mission to give back.

"We thought it was very important to support the community in some capacity," said Thomas Mellnick with Plastipak. "We worked with the Mayor on how to select the individual groups. We did our homework on them and felt that they all four had very worthy causes. So, we're very happy to support the groups."

The organizations that received the donations say the money will go a long way in helping them continue their missions.
