Lending a Hand
We believe in being a good neighbor to all, helping others in need and being part of something bigger than oneself. With so many dedicated, hardworking people in our communities, it’s our duty to give back.
Good Neighbor Initiative
Our belief in community is only as good as the action that backs it up — that’s why we invest in our communities through our Good Neighbor Initiative. See how we’ve been giving back since 2019.
Giving back to Berks County
We have pledged $8,000 to the Berks County Head Start program in Reading, Pennsylvania. The funds will help support the staff wellness program and student field trips. We also partnered with Redner’s Markets to provide back-to-school bags, including school supplies, Star Ranch Angus beef coupons and healthy snacks. Additionally, we worked with the Fightin’ Phils, the Double-A affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies, to provide roughly 1,500 home game tickets to various nonprofits in the area.
Honoring Disabled American Veterans
Our team partnered with Disabled American Veterans® (DAV) Chapter 150 in Corpus Christi, Texas, for its annual Purple Heart Day barbecue dinner. We donated brisket for the dinner and presented a $20,000 check to the entire DAV organization, which will support their mission to keep its promise to America’s veterans.
Setting students up for success
We awarded a $16,000 grant to the South Sioux City Community School District and an $8,000 grant to the Silvis School District to support efforts in early childhood literacy. The combined $24,000 in funds helped both districts purchase books and other supplies to aid teachers in helping children learn to read.
Early childhood literacy
We awarded a $13,500 grant to the Amarillo Independent School District, which allowed them to provide elementary schools and reading academies with reading tools. Another grant was awarded to Lexington Public Schools for $11,500 allowing them to purchase books for their early intervention homebased and early learning academy preschool programs as well as provide professional development for teachers.
Food for first responders
Being a good neighbor means showing up for your community — something first responders do every day. To show our appreciation, we distributed Star Ranch Angus beef products to several fire stations in Pennsylvania. The firefighters were able to take the products home to feed their families, as well as enjoy yearlong steak coupons.
