Making a Difference is a non-profit started to support many charities throughout the country.
Our campaign in September will focus primarily on raising awareness for child hunger. During this month, the Foundation will partner with TIPRO to spread the message that 1 in 5 children worry when they will have their next meal.
To help combat this epidemic, Flotek will donate 1% of sales from our Complex nano-Fluid® product line in September to local food banks where we operate. _We are inviting you to participate along with us. Starting September 1st, online donations can be made at www.makingadifference.com.
An important part of the “Making a Difference” ethos for Flotek is giving back.
Whether it’s our work with Make a Wish®, veterans concerns or support for Eric Dickerson’s efforts to help boys and young men facing the challenges of growing up without their fathers, Flotek is unabashedly committed to giving back, being good stewards of our communities and making a difference in the lives of those we serve.
Without that commitment, our commercial efforts seem less important. Our commitments to our communities give our daily efforts a greater sense of purpose and meaning and, we hope, create ripples into the communities that make our world a better place. That is what “Making a Difference” is all about.
