Making a Positive Impact in the Community
We are a vital part of our local community and are committed to giving back to our neighbors and supporting good causes in every way we can. Whether it is investing resources or lending time to volunteer efforts, we contribute to the well-being of our community and the people who work and live there.
In 2020, our employees will participate in a variety of community activities, sharing their time and resources to help others. Some examples of such activities are:
Junior Achievement – We are partnering with Junior Achievement in the Houston area, providing volunteers for the JA Entrepreneurial Conference and JA Career Speakers series.
Relay for Life – We partnered with Terrebonne Parish to raise funds for Relay for Life by selling lunches, t-shirts and luminary bags to memorialize loved ones. All proceeds collected were donated to the American Cancer Society.
Hurricane Relief – When Hurricane Laura hit the Lake Charles and Jennings area of Louisiana, Gulf Island and our employees jumped into action, raising funds and volunteering to assist in clean-up activities and to provide essential items and warm meals for the impacted community.
