Kurth Primary School Picnic Tables

Pilgrim’s Investment Will Fund Purchase of Picnic Tables

This investment will purchase 25 outdoor picnic tables for Kurth Primary School, in the school’s colors, to allow students to adhere to social distancing rules during lunch and classroom time.

Partner: Kurth Primary School and Lufkin Independent School District
Target Completion Date: TBD

Thanks to the JBS USA and Pilgrim’s Hometown Strong initiative, Texas will have even more support and greater access to crucial resources as we respond to COVID-19. This $6.5 million investment will help strengthen community infrastructure, provide additional COVID-19 response and relief resources, and help alleviate food insecurity. I am grateful to JBS USA and Pilgrim’s for their commitment to supporting their hard working employees, as well as their communities.
