Air Products employees and contractors from Trade Construction, Triad Construction and Petrin Construction working to restart the company’s hydrogen plant in Convent collected and donated $10,000 to the Baton Rouge Food Bank to help families in the Donaldsonville area.

“Trade is happy to be a part of this donation to the community,” Brennan Easley of Trade Construction said in the announcement. “We are blessed and privileged to give to those in need at this time of year.”

“This is a great example of workers stepping up to make an impact beyond the fence of their facility to help the surrounding community,” State Rep. Ken Brass said in the release. “I am grateful for companies like Air Products, Trade, Triad and Petrin for not only supporting jobs and industry in our area, but also supporting families in need.”
