Eastern Industrial Supplies annual golf tournament raised $90,000 that was donated to Teleios Ministry and will be used to house, educate, and support orphaned children who reside at Daily Bread Life Children’s Home and attend Bread of Life Secondary School in Tanzania.

“Our proceeds this year will not only cover Bread of Life Secondary School’s operating costs for a year but also cover construction costs for a new science lab that the Tanzanian government is requiring the school to have,” said David Kay, Eastern Cares Director and co-organizer of the annual golf tournament. 

“Eastern has been in Tanzania for 17 years now and we want to make sure we continue to do our part,” added Caleb Owen, Eastern's Executive Vice President. “We couldn’t do nearly as much without the help of our golfers, sponsors, and friends who make this tournament possible each year.”

Eastern would like to thank Allied Group for being the tournament’s Titanium Sponsor once again this year. Thank you also to our Platinum Sponsors: Merit Brass, SAM Giving, Sunbelt Marketing, Texas Pipe Family of Companies, Victaulic, and Viega.
