HOUSTON (December 18, 2013) – Even during industry expansion and bustling business activity, Mobil Steel International, Inc. employees find time to give back to their community. The local steel fabricator and its employees partner with worthy charities, such as nearby organizations like Clearwood Charger Little League, Pasadena Youth Football, Buckner Foundation Children and Family Services Toy Run, Special Olympics, M.D. Anderson Christmas Cards, Komen Race for the Cure, and Boys & Girls Harbor, that assist children, disadvantaged families, or provide scholarships and opportunities to prepare for successful lives.
Sagemont Church provides another virtuous partner that helps adults and families. Dr. Jim Hastings created Helping Hands ministry to take care of physical needs of
Sagemont Church members and people in the community. Sagemont Church has helped thousands of people get through tough times and on to better days. Mobil Steel has assisted Sagemont Church’s Helping Hands ministry through financial contributions and jobs for members.
Mobil Steel hires qualified workers from Helping Hands to work in administration and operations roles. “The people sourced through the church have strong character and good work ethic. They fit our company culture,” said Sheri Henry, Human
Resources manager. Henry said Mobil Steel has hired several men and women for various roles throughout the years. She is impressed with the quality. She finds Sagemont Church Helping Hands candidates have gifts and talents that help the steel fabricator provide quality customer service.
Helping Hands understands everyone will one day find themselves at a crossroad or in crisis. “We believe the best place to find help in time of need is from those in the household of faith,” said Dr. Hastings. “We appreciate how Mobil and its employees act in a Christ-like manner to fulfill the Lord’s promise to care for and shepherd our neighbors.”
Mobil Steel provides Helping Hands and others a hand-up. “Helping our neighbors is part of Mobil Steel’s philosophy and core values. It’s our culture,” said Leonard A. Bedell, Mobil Steel president and CEO.
