We believe in giving in back to our community by sponsoring and supporting various non-profit programs and charities.
Vehicles for Change empower families with financial challenges to achieve economic and personal independence through car ownership and technical training. In 2014, we sponsored two cars that were donated to two families.
St. Agnes Hospital is committed to caring for all people regardless of their ability to pay. In 2014, we sponsored a table at the Annual Spring Gala and sponsored the Annual Golf Tournament.
Habitat for Humanity brings partners together to build decent, affordable homes that change lives, empower families and strengthen communities. In 2013, employees in Maryland, South Carolina and Pennsylvania worked on all stages of construction, including demolition, framing, painting, building fences and site maintenance. We also worked in the non-profit home improvement store.
We support Suited for Change, a non-profit organization that provides low-income women with professional clothing and job-readiness workshops.

Our Florida employees volunteered in a community food initiative as part of the Re-Entry Alliance Pensacola (REAP) program, which helps adult and youth ex-offenders re-enter society. Volunteers built a one-acre garden with 48 raised beds and planted crops.
