Giving back to our communities
Our communities sustain us, which is why it’s our privilege to give back and help those closest to us. As an active member of our local communities, Wayne-Sanderson Farms gives back through supporting one another and initiating positive change, making the places we live, work, and play better for all. We partner with local charities and communities not only to give back but to give back with purpose.
Wayne-Sanderson Farms is committed to supporting the communities that have helped us achieve success over the years. Through partnerships with key community organizations such as the United Way,® the American Heart Association,® and the American Cancer Society,® we help support our communities through company and employee donations.
As the nation’s third-largest poultry producer, we have the opportunity to make a big impact by donating poultry products to community organizations in need. Whether those donations include poultry and ice during a disaster relief effort or supporting local food kitchens in their quest to reduce food insecurity, we’re proud to lend a helping hand.
In addition to encouraging team member donations to organizations in need, the Amazing Starts With Me employee engagement program focuses on team member collaboration and the significant impact created by rallying around a shared goal.
Our Amazing Starts With Me employee engagement program also empowers employees to make an amazing difference in their local communities by organizing company-wide employee donation efforts and volunteer activities alongside fellow team members.
