Owner Partners with PATH to Cool Down the County
Return to Vaping Blog

TYLER, TX – Vapor Galleria owner, Clint Benefield, is giving back to his community again. Mr. Benefield has partnered with local nonprofit organization, People Attempting to Help (PATH). Their goal is to get 100 electric fans donated to low-income families and senior citizens throughout the county this summer.


Vapor Galleria has already committed to donating 50 of those fans. And are offering special in-store discounts to customers who donate as well.


“I’ve always had a soft spot for the less fortunate,” said Benefield when asked what sparked his desire to help. “We think it is important to give back to the community. And I want my business to reflect a few of my beliefs.”


Mrs. Gertrude Windsor founded PATH 33 years ago. Their mission is to restore hope with a personalized approach to empower our East Texas neighbors to thrive in our community.


“We are locally funded, governed and serving in this area,” PATH Executive Director Greg Grubb said. “If someone is in need or knows someone in need, we can help or find other resources that can help. Local businesses that partner with PATH make a difference in the lives of those we serve by providing much needed support through efforts like this summer’s fan drive.”


The donation window for the fan drive is May 28th through June 3rd and the goal is to have 100 donated fans by that end date.


Any community members who wish to join Mr. Benefield, PATH, and Vapor Galleria by participating in the summer fan drive can drop off donations of electric fans or cash at 1400 West SW Loop 323, Suite 50, Tyler 75701.


Any amount is appreciated and will significantly help our community’s low-income families and senior citizens keep cool this summer.
