The Importance of Corporate Citizenship
At the heart of EDI’s charitable giving is the idea that being a good corporate citizen by giving back to our communities is both a responsibility and privilege. For over 55 years EDI – A Shealy Company, has developed deep-rooted relationships throughout North and South Carolina. EDI has supported many non-profit and civic organizations through its charitable and community efforts, specifically through funding, product donations, and volunteered time. We view this relationship as being central to our mission of serving the communities we call home, and we strive to leverage our position as one of the largest independent electrical wholesalers to affect positive change.
Although EDI is extremely active in the community, the Charitable Contribution Committee (CCC) decided it could be more effective in its philanthropic efforts and make an even greater impact in meeting the needs of our communities. As a result, EDI’s CCC formed PluggedIn as its defined philanthropic arm. The objective of PluggedIn is outlined in the following charitable mission statement:
EDI – A Shealy Company, is commmitted to improving the quality of life in the communities where we live and work by supporting organizations that address vital community needs and issues.
By focusing its charitable contributions of both time and funds in this manner, PluggedIn will enable EDI to support programs that align with its mission and allow the organization to continue its already established community involvement.
