Tyson Team Members Raise $150,000, Powering the Spirit to End Hunger in Their Communities

                                        

In the 2007 Tyson Powering the Spirit fundraising effort, Tyson Team Members from across the country raised more than $150,000 to assist childhood hunger relief efforts in their own communities.

Fundraising efforts were diverse and creative, ranging from grilling events and bake sales to the award-winning  "tug" in Waterloo, Iowa (pictured above), in which the entire community came together to raise more than $20,000 to help fund programs of the Northeast Iowa Food Bank.

Longtime Tyson partner Share Our Strength is a critical part of the Powering the Spirit program, administering grants to worthy hunger relief organizations in the Tyson communities.
