Workforce Housing Provider Celebrates a Milestone By Giving Back
Midland, Texas – Cotton Logistics celebrates the one year anniversary of their Midland Lodge this month.
The Cotton Logistics Midland Lodge was the first privately contracted mancamp constructed by the company to provide lodging for one of their larger clients operating in the Permian Basin of West Texas.
The Cotton Companies have always believed in giving back to the local communities they work in, from coordinating toy drives and delivering goods to disaster-stricken towns to hosting fundraisers and raising money for local charities or children with disabilities.
In an effort to make a visible impact along the roadways they travel to and from work each day, Cotton Logistics partnered with the Texas Adopt-a-Highway program and adopted a 2 mile section of Business Interstate 20 just outside of the Midland city limits, very near their lodge.
On June 22, the Cotton Logistics Midland team volunteered their day to collect litter along the highway in support of the state’s litter prevention program. At dusk, loaded trash bags filled the bed of a Cotton Logistics pickup truck. “It was an extremely rewarding day for all of us that participated”, said Romeo Gutierrez, Midland Lodge Camp Manager, as he beamed with satisfaction of a job well done. Volunteers included Gutierrez, James Foster, Cuahtemoc Cuevas, Jackeline Fernandez, Hilda Sorto, and Jose Luis Trejo.
Members of Cotton Logistics’ Midland team will clean up the area several more times throughout the year as part of the program.
