Tyson Foods and Lift Up America Team Up With Furman Paladins in the Fight Against Hunger in the Greenville Area

GREENVILLE, S.C., Feb. 18, 2008 – More than 40 Greenville-area hunger relief agencies received some much-needed assistance today, thanks to the efforts of Tyson Foods, Inc., (NYSE:TSN), Lift Up America and student-athletes and coaches from Furman University. Coach Bobby Lamb and approximately 12 members of the football team helped a team of 25 volunteers unload a truckload of protein products donated by Tyson Foods today near West End Field. The truck contained more than 30,000 pounds of protein products that were distributed to area hunger relief agencies.
“This event is a great way to show the university’s commitment and support for the Greenville community,” said Lamb. “Our players are proud to volunteer their time to the Lift Up America program and to help distribute this donation from Tyson Foods that will make such a difference to people in need. Like the many other volunteers who are here today, we are here because Greenville is where we live and work, too.”
