They may be downsizing but Tyson foods will honor the company's pledge to the United Way of the Flint Hills.

The Emporia Gazette reports Tyson will give $20,000 this month and another payment later this year to make up for pledges from workers let go.

Tyson eliminated about 1,700 jobs from the plant; 700 workers remain.

Employees had pledged $52,000 dollars to the United Way before the cuts.
