For the second year, Williams made the holiday season a little merrier and brighter for local school students. The Marshall County FRN helped to organize a project sponsored by Williams that sought to ensure local children and teens will have food and gift items for Christmas.

Williams sponsored a “Hoodies and Hams” project that provided hooded sweatshirts and hams for over 80 Moundsville Middle and Cameron Middle/High school students and families in need of a little extra support during the holidays. Holiday gift distributions and other projects typically serve younger children, and this project helps to ensure that older children and teens are also included. Last year, the project was warmly received by students and staff at both schools, so Williams and the FRN felt that organizing the project for a second year would again create a meaningful impact. The Marshall County FRN extends its gratitude to Williams and its employees for their generosity and desire to give back to the communities in which they operate.

“The holiday season can be a difficult time for families who may be struggling to make ends meet, and this project will help to make sure local community members can truly have a Merry Christmas,” stated Stacie Dei, Executive Director of the Marshall County FRN. “We are very appreciative of Williams and their employees’ commitment to our communities, and are so grateful for their generosity.”

“At Williams, we recognize and accept our responsibility to the communities where we operate and our employees live. Giving back is simply a part of our DNA. I can’t tell you how thankful I am that I work for a company that is willing to encourage employees to volunteer in their community and be good neighbors,” explained Sheri Cramblit, Sr. Community Relations Specialist at Williams. “This season of giving, we are happy we are able to reach out and provide a little extra.”
