Forming lasting relationships with nonprofit groups is central to our corporate culture. We’re proud to respond to critical-need situations the same way we respond to customers: with quick, deliberate action and follow-up to assure our efforts met the need. A few of the 501(c)(3) charities PTP proudly sponsors include:
Ukraine Relief. We enthusiastically support the important work of Emmanuel Baptist Church, which, in partnership with Greene-Hills School, is helping with the relief efforts for Ukraine.

Music for Climate Justice. Climate change is fundamentally an issue of human rights and environmental justice that connects the local to the global.

Those who are most affected and have the fewest resources to adapt . . .”
