Tyndale is Proud to Protect, and Just as Proud to Help

For 40 years, Tyndale has been Proud to Protect. And, together with our amazing employee “members,” the Tyndale family is just as Proud to Help.

Since Tyndale was founded in the 1980’s, we have played an active role in the communities where our members live and work. As the company grew in size and scope, CEO Gail Whittenberger founded our Proud to Help Committee, tasked with soliciting nominations from our members, vetting those charitable organizations, and planning Tyndale’s efforts to reach out and give back.

Since then, Tyndale has supported a wide range of national and local causes near and dear to the hearts of Tyndale members in our Pipersville, PA, Houston, TX, and Factory Store locations. A sizeable majority of our nearly-400 members contribute to these efforts throughout the year.

So far in 2021, Tyndale members have generously donated their time, money, and supplies to help the following organizations:

  • April – BEAR Resources: Together we raised over $4,200 in donated items for children ages 0-5 who are under the care of Child Protective Services – helping to provide many children with essential items they need to grow and flourish.
  • May – Aark Wildlife Education and Rehab Center: Through shirt orders, monetary donations, legacy tile orders, and Amazon donations, we raised $2,750 in support of Aark’s mission of fostering care and understanding for wildlife through rehabilitation, education, and training.
  • June – underprivileged youth:
    • Baker Ripley: Our Texas-based members supported low-income pregnant women, children, and their families by creating 60 baskets filled with summer activities and educational items such as blocks, crayons, toy cars and other supplies.
    • Princeton Blairstown Center: Our Pennsylvania-based members donated over $1,900 to a wish list of items in support of the Leaders-in-Training program, which helps junior counselors from underserved communities develop leadership and employment skills to brighten their futures.
  • July – local food banks: Tyndale members participated in a food drive and received an ice cream sundae in exchange for donations benefitting the Houston Foodbank (Texas-based members) and Philabundance (Pennsylvania-based members).
  • August (in process) – local parks and recreation organizations: Tyndale members in Pennsylvania will volunteer to manage and maintain Peace Valley Nature Center’s outdoor living museum and environmental education facility, while Texas-based members collect donations in support of the Houston Parks Board, which creates, improves, protects, and advocates for local communities.

As the year goes on, our planned outreach will also include the Travis Manion Foundation, Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, Healthcare for the Homeless, National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), and Toys for Tots.

Check out the Community section of our website for more information about each organization, and to review Tyndale’s outreach since the inception of our Proud to Help Committee in 2017. We are so proud of the impact this committee and our generous members have made in just a few years’ time – even finding creative ways to continue our charitable outreach safely during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic this past year.

Thank you for your support! By choosing Tyndale, you allow us to continue to positively impact not only the people we protect, but the communities in which we live and work.

Want to get involved? Mark your calendar for Sunday, September 5 – the United Nations’ International Day of Charity. This is a great day to make a donation or plan to volunteer with an organization in your area.
