The Hutto Resource Center received $23,450 from semiconductor manufacturing company Infineon Technologies during a check presentation June 24.
The center provides food for food insecure families, financial assistance, resources for other programs and funds for cancer patients, executive director Donna Jones said. It was awarded nonprofit of the year at the Hutto Chamber of Commerce’s 2020 gala.
“We partner with other businesses and organizations in the community just so we can work together to make a bigger impact,” she said.
Following the February winter storm, Infineon Technologies looked for ways to help local communities around its manufacturing facilities, said Randal Clark, sort sustaining test manager at Infineon. Because one of the facilities is located in the Austin metro, he said he submitted the Hutto Resource Center for possible funding and got approved.
Clark serves on the Hutto planning and zoning commission, as chair of the zoning board of adjustment and was recently appointed to the Economic Development Corporation during the City Council’s July 17 meeting.
Jones said the center has already received the money, and the funding will allow them to provide 93,800 meals and help with utilities for 117 households.
