It’s always fun to hear about a new company that is doing more than talking about helping the community. That’s why I was surprised when I was told about a swamp mat company that does more than muck around in the marshes. Quality Mat Company is a charitable business located in Beaumont, TX. The very picture of Southern kindness, the family owned company does a lot of good aside from the dull sounding day to day of manufacturing and selling new and used mats.
• All net profits from the Houston office are given to charity.
• Rental mats are color coded to differentiate between other companies. Quality Mat chose pink to promote breast cancer awareness everywhere the mats go.
• If you can name a local charity, Quality Mat has likely been involved at some point. They work with over 30 of them regularly.
• The Penland family, that runs Quality Mat, has such a big heart that they personally give to many charitable events and organizations, such as the MD Anderson Cancer Center.
It’s always heartwarming to hear about a business that is looking out for everyone else. If you want to find out more about Quality Mat, they feature one of their favorite charities every month on their blog. If you’re looking to participate or give to a charity, these are all great, amazing organizations, like the Girl’s Haven, 100 Club of Southeast Texas, and Gift of Life program.
