Hi-Crush Partners LP Donates Sheffield Property to Taylor Diversion Programs
Houston, Texas - August 5, 2016 - Hi-Crush Partners LP (NYSE: HCLP), or Hi-Crush, today announced that it has donated property located in Sheffield, Pennsylvania to Taylor Diversion Programs, Inc. ("Taylor"), a non-profit organization that provides supportive prevention services for at-risk youth and their families. Hi-Crush is pleased to support a great organization while also contributing to the Sheffield community.
The property being donated includes a building, a warehouse and several acres of land, sitting near the center of the Allegheny National Forest of northwestern Pennsylvania. The location formerly served as an administrative office for the northeast distribution operations of Hi-Crush. With its natural and scenic surroundings, the site will be used by Taylor to serve as an outdoor learning laboratory for at-risk youth, immersing program participants in outdoor activities and education. The Sheffield property will supplement Taylor's existing location nearby in Tionesta, Pennsylvania, known as the Lighthouse Academy, which supports the academic portion of the program.
"We are extremely appreciative of this generous donation made by Hi-Crush," said Michael Cummings, Executive Director & President of Taylor. "As a non-profit organization, our program youth and staff rely heavily on the contributions of others. The property being donated will be used to enhance the prevention services we offer and further our mission of creating stronger, healthier communities."
