COMMUNITY OUTREACH
Company-wide, more than 500 Project GIFT® “Blackshirt” volunteers participate in almost 100 community outreach events each year. In 2012, Project GIFT joined channel partner Brazill Brothers to provide disaster relief for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. Each year, the team stages a school supply program – which provided bags of supplies to OVER 5,000 local students in 2014 – and works with Toys for Tots, collecting some 10,000 toys in the last two years. Also in 2013, Project GIFT volunteers collected five tractor trailer loads of disaster relief supplies for victims of the Oklahoma City tornadoes and traveled to the stormravaged
city to distribute those supplies.
 

COMMITMENT TO EDUCATION

Southwire’s 12 for Life® initiative provides at-risk high school students with the opportunity to receive mentoring and earn wages in a manufacturing facility. We also supported education through the Southwire Engineering Academy, which provides hands-on application for high school students who are gifted in science, technology, engineering and math. Our Southwire Center for Manufacturing Excellence and implementation of the Southwire Sustainable Business Honors Program with the University of West Georgia continued our focus on education at the post-secondary level.
