For more than a hundred years, we’ve been lighting the way for families to grow and businesses to prosper in communities across Appalachia, the Midwest and Southwest. Today, we strengthen that legacy of service by tackling our community’s most basic needs: food and housing. And education. Giving back in these ways and promoting environmental sustainability are an important part of who we are. In fact, we invest more than $16 million a year to care for others in our community and to promote and protect our environment. Working together with you, we are making our families healthier, our economies stronger and the future brighter for our communities.
