Houston, Texas - January 5, 2015 - Hi-Crush Partners LP (NYSE: HCLP), or Hi-Crush, today announced that it has donated a parcel of land to the Sheffield Area Ecumenical Food Pantry located at 18 Leather Street, Sheffield, PA. In addition to providing the land parcel, Hi-Crush also made a donation of $5,000 to the Food Pantry. Senior executives from Hi-Crush, along with town officials and Food Bank representaives, celebrated the occasion with a key and check presentation on December 30, 2014. Hi-Crush employees also donated over 200 pounds of food and other household supplies to the pantry.
"We are very happy to help the Food Pantry with this gift and look forward to playing a continued role in the local Sheffield community," said Roy Richmond, General Manager of Hi-Crush. "After its acquisition of D&I Silica in 2013, Hi-Crush has made it a priority to continue working with local Sheffield partners to bring about positive economic impact, and this donation marks a significant milestone in our ongoing commitment to the region."
"We are grateful to Hi-Crush for this generous donation of land and money," said Dennis Johnson, Treasurer of the Sheffield Area Food Pantry. "The property at 18 Leather Street has many advantages over the Food Pantry's current location in the basement of the Ruth Smith Center, and we are eager to leverage this new storage space to further assist Sheffield residents in need."
