Humbly serving all those on our path, Western Dairy Transport’s commitment to our communities and families includes assisting in developing the dairy and agricultural leaders of tomorrow. On March 20, Western Dairy Transport sponsored Tarleton State University’s Dairy Club ‘Workout and Dinner.
Members of Western Dairy Transport served barbecue to over three hundred FFA and 4H’ers attending the dairy judging clinic put on by Tarleton State University Dairy Club at Lone Star Arena in Stephenville, Texas. The WDT team members doing the actual serving to clinic attendees are both Tarleton Agriculture and Life Science undergraduate students.
In our purpose-fueled, community-driven vision, Western Dairy Transport supports the education and advancement of future dairy agriculture leaders and producers of tomorrow.
For 15 years, our Foster Kids Christmas project has enhanced the spirit of our holiday season. Coats, shoes, and warm clothes for those who need them are always a priority. We also provide groceries for families who need extra help feeding kids during the long holiday break from school. This very fulfilling project, made possible by donations and fundraisers by WDT, WD Logistics, and Cabool Lease employees, brings home the true meaning of Christmas to all who participate.
Christmas 2018 was another heartwarming and successful group effort! From those who gave donations, to those who spent time searching for just the right items on the kids’ wish lists, we succeeded in providing an extra special Christmas for 36 children in the Foster Care program, including 4 families, in Texas County, Missouri. New on a wish list this year, was the request for a hamster. After checking to make sure it was okay for us to fulfill the little girl's wish, we furnished Santa with a hamster and all the supplies she would need to care for it (see photo below). Although the girl's case worker was less than enthusiastic about chauffeuring a "rodent" in her car to it's new home, we all gladly worked together to provide some true Christmas magic for every one of these kids.
Food and toy drives were also held in El Paso and Stephenville. Donated toys and gift cards were given to Foster's Home for Children in Stephenville, which provides homes for approximately 60 children in foster care. Food collected in El Paso was donated to The Rescue Mission.
Everyone is invited to join us in this delightful Christmas tradition in 2019.
