Tymex Plastics, located in a Weston-owned facility on Harvard Avenue, have assisted the Boy Scouts of America with this year’s annual popcorn fundraiser. Eric Yarabenetz, an Eagle Scout himself, and partners Mike Turkovich and Mark Simonitis donated use of their warehouse space for storage and handling of many pallets of popcorn. They also donated the time and labor of their personnel to load the products onto the delivery vehicles. Each year, the BSA reaches out to the community for help with this fundraiser, and Tymex answered the call. Mike Turkovich said, “Everyone has felt the effects of the economy over the past couple of years. We have a strong belief in community, and have had so many people reach out to us; we feel it is incumbent upon us to give back whatever and whenever we can. It is a pleasure to volunteer our efforts to such a worthy cause”.
Over 70% of all proceeds from the BSA popcorn sale go directly to local scouting units, who, in turn, volunteer countless hours on community service projects. We thank Tymex Plastics for giving so generously of themselves to such a worthwhile cause.
