$2.8 million in charitable contributions in 2022
DEI-focused giving increased by $175,000 in 2022
55% team member participation in the POWER Fund in 2022
Now in its 17th year, the POWER Fund remains focused on taking care of Southwire team members faced with emergency circumstances outside of their control. In 2022, the POWER Fund distributed more than 600 grants to team members in need, totaling $885,087.
Among other circumstances, these funds supported team members dealing with a serious illness or injury, the effects of a natural disaster, and an immediate family member’s loss of life. In addition to Southwire’s corporate contributions, nearly 55% of team members donated to the Fund to ensure grants remained available as emergency situations arose.
Through our partnership with Walk for Water, team members raise awareness of the distance many people walk to meet their daily water needs. In 2022, participants walked 1.5 miles to a water source, where they filled buckets that they carried back and used to water trees and plants.
We host an annual toy drive with the help of Project GIFT® volunteers and community members in Carrollton, Georgia, to bring hope and joy to less fortunate children throughout the U.S. during the holiday season.
Southwire hosts disaster relief drives to collect monetary donations and essential supplies when our communities are impacted by disaster. In 2022, volunteers provided support to victims of Hurricane Ian, a Category 4 hurricane that touched down in Southwest Florida, and deadly flooding that ravaged communities throughout Kentucky.
Southwire partners with Project HOPE, a nonprofit that addresses disasters and health crises, among other global issues to enable employees to contribute to relief efforts for the people of Ukraine.
Through our annual Back to School Giveaway, our employees distribute bags of school supplies to students in need.

In 2022, WGTC unveiled the new Southwire Precision Manufacturing and Maintenance Lab at its Carroll Campus.
