Precision Pipeline donates toys for local children


By Shirley Shuman
Thanks to employees of Precision Pipeline, many local children will enjoy a merrier Christmas this year. Michael West of the company’s safety department said that the employees have gathered—or donated for, $4,200 worth of toys plus 35 bicycles and bicycle helmets.
West spearheaded the project, but he explained that the safety department routinely participates in such programs. “Every time we go to a new community, we always want to contribute to that community,” West explained. For example, earlier this year, the company worked with the local school system on a backpack project.
This project, which runs until Dec. 15, began with contact of the local DHHR, which will distribute the toys. Employees of Precision Pipeline brought in toys, and the group collected money with which they bought additional toys. “We’re pretty excited about it,” West said, adding “About 400 employees helped with Toys for Tots. They enjoyed doing it.”
West continued to explain that the company and its employees “want to let everyone know we’re visitors. We know we cause traffic problems, but we always want to make sure we try to help.” He concluded with, “One thing we can agree on is to help Christmas be a good experience.”
Precision Pipeline is constructing this pipeline for Mountaineer Valley Pipeline.
