Sharp Propane Celebrates 61st Anniversary
with Sharp Service Week

The employees of Sharp Propane celebrate the company's anniversary with a week of volunteer service in the communities they call home.

BASTROP, TEXAS -- Sharp Propane employees spent the week of August 9-13 volunteering across the state to celebrate the company's 61st anniversary. Sharp Service Week is part of the company's year-round community service program.

"Since 1949, Sharp Propane has been dedicated to the communities we serve, so Sharp Service Week is an ideal way for us to celebrate our anniversary annually," said Steve McKay, Sharp Propane CEO. "Our team takes great pride in our communities and enjoys having the time to give back not only during our service week but throughout the year."

This year during Sharp Service Week, employees focused on assisting at food banks in their communities, sorting donations to help make ready for distribution. The Austin office team volunteered throughout the week at the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas. In Bastrop, the corporate office team volunteered at the Bastrop County Emergency Food Pantry & Support Center. In Bryan and Fort Worth, team members volunteered at the Brazos Valley Food Bank and Tarrant Area Food Bank respectively. The La Grange team assisted at the Area Ministry for Emergency Needs. Additionally, the Safety Division responded to a local news story and provided donated toiletries for the Hope Alliance in Round Rock, serving Williamson and Northern Travis counties.  

"Our local Food Banks provide valuable resources to our communities, and we were happy to make them our focus for service this year," said McKay. "I know many of our team members will continue their involvement throughout the year."

Sharp Propane has a year-round community service program, which in addition to Sharp Service Week, provides employees with 20 hours a year of community service leave. Additionally, Sharp's charitable and community engagement fund provides financial assistance to organizations where employees are involved in their communities. The overall program is geared toward giving time and resources in ways that make communities better.
