Giving Back

Our employees believe that it’s important to give back to the community in which we work and live. Whether it’s here in our community or on a global scale, we’re doing our part to make the world a better place.

Lending A Hand

At home.

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.

Lending A Hand

At large.

With a mascot that hails from the other side of the world, it’s important to remember that our community is truly a global one. We support rhino research and conservation both at accredited zoos in the US and at preserves in Africa. We also 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.

Doing our Part

For Rhinos

Speedy and his relatives need just as much opportunity as the rest of us to live the life about which they dream. That’s why we support rhino conservation efforts both here in the U.S. and in Africa, one of their native countries. Take a look at where we’re focusing our efforts, and feel free to join us in these worthy causes!

Meet Jeela

Jeela is a baby grey rhino, recently born at the Potter Park Zoo in Lansing, MI. Speedy has “adopted” Jeela and will help provide food, medical care, and improvements to her habitat as she grows.

Hard Stance Against Poaching

Through the NC Zoo Society, much work is being done to fight against illegal poaching of African grey rhinos, and we wanted to be a part of that. We have donated funds in order to help protect these important animals and help their numbers grow.

The Rhino Orphanage

The Rhino Orphanage is one of the first of its kind, providing safety and rehabilitation for baby rhinos without parents. While the location is kept secret to deter poachers, the effects of their mission can be felt all over the world as more and more rhinos are rehabbed and reintroduced to crashes in the wild.
