Peterbilt makes large contribution to United Way

| January 13, 2011

Peterbilt Motors Co. donated $269,814 to the United Way of Denton County’s 2010 fundraising campaign, the Denton, Texas-based truck maker announced in December. The company’s employees raised $159,814, and parent company PACCAR contributed an additional $110,000.

“Peterbilt and our employees are dedicated to helping improve the lives of friends, neighbors and those in our community who need our help,” said Bill Jackson, Peterbilt general manager and PACCAR vice president. “Together, with the generous contributions of our employees and the partnership with United Way of Denton County, we can make a difference in building a stronger community not only for today, but for future generations to come.”

Peterbilt has donated nearly $4 million over the past 10 years, a company spokesman said.

“The leadership and employees of Peterbilt have identified that the United Way of Denton County leads the way in providing services and assistance in our community,” said Todd Price, the 2010-2011 United Way of Denton County Board Chair. “As we are focused on improving the areas of Education, Income and Health, their increased support this year is a testament of the difference United Way is making in our community.”
