The news that the Tyson Family and Tyson Foods Inc are gifting $15 million for the construction of a new children's welfare facility in Arkansas once again reaffirms the connection between a family firm and the community in which they operate.
Family firms are great contributors to the local community and give back significantly on a local, national and international scale.
Family firms are caring, committed and invest for the long term and it is through these pillars and sound decision-making that they are able to grow and subsequently reinvest in their communities.
A remarkable act of family business generosity.
The Tyson Family and Tyson Foods, Inc. are making another significant investment in the Northwest Arkansas region creating a wellness destination for families for generations to come. John H. Tyson, Chairman of the Board, Tyson Foods; Barbara Tyson; and Donnie Smith, CEO of Tyson Foods, announced a gift of $15 million for the construction of Arkansas Children’s Northwest.
