The BNSF Railway Company operates one of the largest freight railroad networks in North America, with 32,500 miles of rail across the western two-thirds of the United States!

As a Platinum Plus Gala Sponsor – an elite sponsorship that underwrites our annual grand event to provide food, clothing, shelter, medical care and hope to families with event proceeds – the railway company’s example of servant leadership is just as significantly far reaching.

The “BNSF impact” on our GRACE Programs that empower, sustain and uplift families who seek refuge in our community is immeasurable.

Our relationship with this company has been forged over years and years of hard work and tireless giving, working together to reinvest and build up this community whether it be by individual, family, or project. The leadership provided by Paul Bischler and Tom Hund before him have provided over a decade’s worth of invaluable vision. The dedicated individuals of this company have undertaken tremendous projects to make improvements at GRACE and for our clients, ranging from repaving asphalt to tinting windows to cleaning and organization of our Food Pantry.

The support of BNSF as a Gala Platinum Plus Sponsor helps set the stage for annual event, embodying the heart of GRACE’s mission. A deep, heartfelt thank you to BNSF for doing their part to make our first ever GRACE Gala Virtual possible, and, most importantly, for recognizing the value of each client we serve.
