Supporting communities and organizations through giving has always been a cornerstone of our business. We believe a stronger community benefits everyone and doing our part to make the communities we work in and even those thousands of miles away is an important cause we want to contribute to with our time, our talent, and our resources. Every year, our employees give hundreds of hours of volunteer time in their communities and to causes they are passionate about.
In order to build the healthy and safe communities we work closely with many non-profit organizations that deliver vital services to those that need it. In fact, in the areas of health care, housing, and education our partners have made incredible differences for the lives of thousands of people.
Organizations we support
Second Harvest Heartland works to reinvent hunger relief through leadership and innovation. As the Upper Midwest’s largest hunger relief organization, their goal is not only to help our hungry neighbors today, but to provide the means for everyone to be fed tomorrow. In 2011 alone, they collected, warehoused and distributed more than 70 million pounds of food—but they’re also constantly pioneering ways to reduce waste and better use resources.
