It’s important for us to give back to the community in which we work and live. That’s why we support a local elementary school in Durham, NC through teacher supply drives, angel tree holiday gift donations, sponsored weekend meals, and by participating in school events like career day.
We also partner with Durham Habitat for Humanity, the Durham Rescue Mission, The Blood Connection, and the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina.
Our employees value community outreach in their personal lives, as well. Because of this, we offer Volunteer Time Off for employees to go out and do volunteer work that they’re passionate about.
With employees that hail from all over the world, it’s important to remember that our community is truly a global one. We held an Earth Day celebration for local kids to teach them more about how their decisions can have a global impact, and in 2018, we packed 15,000 meals for Rise Against Hunger.
Within our own walls, we know the impact that business processes make on our environment is our responsibility. We constantly work to improve our building and make green choices — things like refillable water bottles, a heavy push on recycling, and even walls built from locally sourced barnwood. We also encourage our partners and customers to make smart choices as we look to be more responsible with our products.
