DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–TCI and its management company, Pillar Income Asset

for Family Gateway of Dallas, Texas.

Pillar donated over 200 items to Family Gateway, Inc. in response to the

towels, sheets, detergent, toothpaste and toothbrushes. “Year after year
Pillar employees come through with donations to various Dallas

provide over 800 meals to North Texas Food Bank. I’m always impressed by
how generous our employees are.”

Kathy Kidwell, Family Gateway’s Director of Volunteers, accepted
Pillar’s donation. “Simply put, if it wasn’t for faithful supporters
like you, we wouldn’t exist. So thank you and every employee of Pillar
Income for supplying all the sheets, towels, bedding, detergent, hygiene
products and many, many more amazing ‘in-kind’ donations that we need
each and everyday to make a difference in the lives of the homeless
children and their families we help each and everyday…truly from the
bottom of our hearts ‘Thank you.’”
