At AllSouth, we're dedicated to making a difference in the communities we serve and improving the quality of life for our neighbors. In 2019, we established an Employee Volunteer Program to provide opportunities for our employees to support and give back to the community. The volunteer program offers employees paid time specifically for volunteering. We partner with charities and non-profits in our local communities, ensuring to select areas where the need is greatest and where we can make the most significant impact.
Since the program's start, we have donated over 170 hours of community service and partnered with:
Harvest Hope Food Bank - Our team has provided over 70 volunteer hours packaging and sorting food. We've prepared over 1,700 boxes and bags of food that will provide for roughly 300 families for one week.
Habitat for Humanity ReStores - AllSouth team members provided over 50 hours of service at three separate ReStore locations in the Midlands, helping sort and price items, stock shelves, organize furniture, unload donations, and more.
Meals on Wheels (Senior Resources) - Our team has provided 36 volunteer hours at three Senior Resources locations throughout Richland County, spending time packaging meals to be delivered to senior citizens in need throughout the community.
Transitions - AllSouth team members spent volunteer hours serving over 350 hot meals to people struggling with homelessness in the downtown Columbia area.
We have seen our team members go above and beyond to lend a helping hand through our volunteer program. Not only is it a great way to make a difference in our communities, but it's also an excellent opportunity for our team to bond over serving families and individuals who need it most. We are excited to see what volunteer opportunities the future brings as we continue our dedication to making a difference in the lives of others.
