Transport refrigeration company awards $10,000 grant as top prize for dealer’s win at annual We Move Food fundraising golf tournament

Thermo King recently donated $10,000 to the Northwest Arkansas Food Bank.

Bill Dawson, general manager at Transport Refrigeration of Northwest Arkansas, selected this year’s recipient as the top prize for winning Thermo King’s annual We Move Food fundraising golf tournament.

“We have worked with the Northwest Arkansas Food Bank for several years supporting their refrigerated fleet operations, and we know firsthand the important work they do in our community,” Dawson said. “Competing for the chance to award them with a $10,000 grant gave me extra motivation.”

Thermo King’s We Move Food program—launched in 2017 to help increase access to fresh food by reducing waste and supporting nutrition education— distributes grants throughout the year to support food banks and pantries’ hunger relief missions, such as mobile pantries, food rescue and recovery, and food distribution.

“Congratulations to Bill for his victory,” said Kent Eikenberry, president CEO at Northwest Arkansas Food Bank. “This is another example of creative ways that our supporters find to help us. Thermo King has been a valuable partner in our distribution of refrigerated product to our 110-plus partner agencies and the more than 70,000 food-insecure neighbors who they serve.”
