Extruder manufacturer Entek Manufacturing Inc. helped make Thanksgiving better for 200 families in its hometown of Lebanon, Ore., this year, and ended up being the centerpiece of this nice holiday-themed story from the Lebanon Express: "Entek brightens holiday." "When Entek founder Jim Young first started, he went through some tough times. One year, he couldn't afford to give his family a Thanksgiving dinner," the story notes. "Young vowed he would never have his employees do the same." Since 1984, the company has given certificates to its employees for Thanksgiving dinners. This year Entek decided to expand that, giving boxes of food and $20 grocery gift certificates to 200 local families -- 22 at each local school "I thought how lucky we are to be very busy, and wanted to help the community who helps Entek," President Larry Keith told the newspaper. Check out the story, it's a "good news" piece involving a plastics company that's making a positive difference in its community.
