A passion for service, to make a difference to customers, each other, and our communities. That's what distinguishes GC&E and our people. At GC&E, we believe in the importance of directly supporting the communities in which we live and work. We feel strongly about using our organizational and financial resources to make charitable contributions not only at a corporate level, but also in support of our employees who help worthy causes at a grassroots level. The passion that drives GC&E personnel to help our customers succeed also motivates our people to make a difference to individuals and nonprofit organizations that need help. Our employees give of their time and talent to better other people's lives, apply their professional skills to help strengthen organizations and contribute their time to social causes that make a difference and have direct impacts to people's lives and our communities.
Through our GC&E Gives Back program, we make corporate donations, host events, and collect contributions throughout the year for a wide range of organizations from national non-profits to local food banks. The GC&E Gives Back program embodies the core of our ideals and values by making a real difference in our local and customer communities and bringing together our employees in meaningful ways.
Day in and day out, across GC&E, our people are serving others... helping the nation's Wounded Warriors transition and thrive in civilian life, supporting families whose loved ones are serving our country overseas, and supporting multiple non-profits through donations of money and time.
GC&E supports the annual US Marine Corps Toys for Tots program and conducts food drives throughout the year to help local families and shelters in the Atlanta, GA area. We are a major contributor to Wounded Warriors and support a number of veteran organizations through the local AFCEA chapter and other charitable events such as the sponsoring of golf tournaments whose proceeds are used to provide financial support and tuition assistance to local families whose loved ones are deployed overseas. We also have a number of personnel who support various non-profit groups such as the American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society through their donation of time and involvement in diverse fundraising activities.
