Community

“Whatever community you are in, I think it’s important to connect to the local community. Beryl is a national company. We just happened to be based in Bedford, Texas, but we really want to get involved in our local community. Every year on 9/11 we participate in a program that goes to repurpose local fire stations. So this year we had 70 people that did that. So what happens when those 70 people leave Beryl for the day? We lose revenue. Right? But imagine how those people feel after getting their hands dirty. It makes people feel really good about the work that they’re doing. It’s not about writing a check; it’s about getting involved."
