“We are fortunate as a company to have many employees so strongly focused on community service and charity,” said Darrin Siver, Peterbilt General Manager and PACCAR Vice President. “We are long-time supporters of the United Way and share in their mission to serve those in need and to improve the communities in which we live and work.”
Peterbilt is the United Way of Denton County’s largest corporate contributor.
