OmniTRAX and the Brownsville & Rio Grande International Railway (BRG) in December distributed $100,000 in contributions to eight local non-profits.
OmniTRAX COO Gord Anutooshkin, BRG President Norma Torres and OmniTRAX Director of Economic Development Federico Diaz Page joined board members and representatives from the receiving organizations at the BRG office today to share the company’s commitment to the region.
"Brownsville is an important partner for OmniTRAX and the BRG, and we recognize the distress being felt throughout the community," said Diaz Page.
"As the pandemic’s sustained effects strain resources even further, it was critical that we find a way to help those in need. With the local guidance of BRG President Norma Torres and the Brownsville Navigation District Board of Commissioners and Port Director & CEO Eduardo Campirano, these eight local nonprofits were identified as key community resources that offer meaningful and timely services to the Brownsville community."
