Lineal Industries, a leading utility construction service provider operating in eastern Ohio, presented a check for $1,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of East Central Ohio (BBBS ECO) during a ceremony April 12 at a construction site near Scio.
“We are extremely pleased that Lineal Industries chose to make such a generous donation to our organization,” said Heather Campbell, president and chief executive officer of BBBS ECO. “This donation will be put to good use and help us with our mission of assisting the many young people in the area who benefit from the associations formed by being part of Big Brothers Big Sisters.”
The check was presented to BBBS ECO by Scott Hunsberger, director of Gas Operations for Lineal Industries. “The Big Brothers Big Sisters organization does such a great job of pairing adult mentors with young people who can benefit from having positive role models in their lives,” said Hunsberger. “We’re proud that Lineal can help support BBBS. It’s always our goal to help out local communities where we work and we appreciate the spirit of cooperation that exists in eastern Ohio.”
BBBS ECO serves Tuscarawas, Carroll, Harrison, Holmes and Wayne counties. Campbell said there are many ways area residents can provide help. “Financial donations help fund events and activities these young people would not otherwise be able to afford,” she said, “and we are always in need of volunteers willing to give time as mentors or in other ways.”
BBBS ECO Board Member Robert Hendricks of Scio praised companies such as Lineal Industries, which boost the local economy and are becoming active community members through employment and purchases but are also “becoming part of the local community through donations of time and money.”
Lineal Industries is a leading turn-key utility construction service provider with more than 50 years experience offering a complete range of transmission and distribution pipeline and electric construction services. Headquartered nearby in Pennsylvania, the company has field offices in Ohio, New York and West Virginia.
