BALDWYN | Leaders and representatives of Liberty Diversified, the parent company of Baldwyn’s Liberty Plastics, were on hand last week to see first-hand what their company’s support of Baldwyn’s Boys & Girls Club means to the youth in the community who take part in the organization.

They got quite a colorful and fun experience as part of the day’s events, and the Baldwyn Boys & Girls Club was gifted with much-needed support from LDI.

Baldwyn Boys & Girls Club Unit Director Deirdre Jacobs accepted a check for $2,000 on behalf of LDI by CEO Mike Fiterman. The club, which has been working hard on fundraising to continue providing fun and educational activities in Baldwyn. 

Company leaders were able to see some of those fun activities in person as children enjoyed making tie-dyed shirts. Tables were set up for groups of children supplied with liquid colors to use to make the tie-dye shirts. Some children rolled their shirt into a long roll then tied rubber bands on then in equal spacing. Others twisted their shirts into a ball and some even laid their shirts flat and used the bottles of color to create cool designs on them. Every child had a great time creating their own original tie dye shirt. Representatives from LDI enjoyed interacting with the children as they created their masterpieces.
