Giving back to the community at Beaulieu is not just a corporate program or policy. It’s an employee passion.
Every year, associates organize and conduct a variety of fund-raising events (as many as 19 events in a year) through their own Beaulieu Cares committee. The funds that are raised are matched by the generous support of one of the company’s founders and owners, Mr. Carl Bouckaert. From bake sales and raffles, to walk/runs and private donations, the committee raises thousands of dollars annually to purchase food and supplies for the food pantry of the Georgia Murray County Chapter of the American Red Cross. This extraordinary volunteer effort helps over 13,000 people each year in the North Georgia area.
Other annual charitable efforts of giving back to the community at Beaulieu include: The United Way Campaign, Toys for Tots, TV3 Share Your Christmas Food Drive, The Green House Child Advocacy Center, and others.
Beaulieu also supports The United Way of Northwest Georgia, which serves over 63,000 residents in Whitfield and Murray Counties. This is where the company is based and has a number of manufacturing facilities.
Toys for Tots is the annual toy collection drive conducted by the United States Marine Corps to help underprivileged kids held during the holiday season. Associates support this charity each year with generous donations and is a joyous example of giving back to the community. Every holiday season, company vans deliver food to the TV3 Share Your Christmas Food Drive, held in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Chattanooga is approximately 30 miles north of the headquarters in Dalton, Georgia.
Green House Child Advocacy Center is supported by Beaulieu America associates. Located in Dalton, Georgia, the Green House Child Advocacy Center cares for almost 200 children each year who are victims of crime and abuse.
In most every case, it’s the initiative of the over 4,500 associates who organize and implement this support for our community charities. As a result, giving back to the community is one more way the mission of Beaulieu America is fulfilled. That’s why we’re known in the communities we serve as the employer of choice, and the supplier of choice.
