PROUD TO HELP

 

Tyndale Community Involvement

At Tyndale, we are grateful to have the good fortune to live and work in such wonderful communities. As part of our mission, Tyndale’s Proud to Help Initiative encourages our members to reach out to our neighbors who can use a helping hand.

In the past year alone, Tyndale members have made significant contributions to local foodbanks, animal rescue organization, and toward helping less fortunate families have more enjoyable holidays. In addition, dozens of members each year participate in fund-raising events to raise money to fight disease, poverty, and more.

ALL OF US AT TYNDALE ARE TRULY PROUD TO HELP
