Shealy Electrical Wholesalers is committed to improving the quality of life in its communities by supporting organizations that address vital community needs and issues.
Giving back is integral to the company. When Shealy and EDI merged in 2011, David White formed the Charitable Giving Committee, PluggedIn, and developed the mission to serve the communities where its associates live and work. At its monthly meetings they carefully review applications for funds and make decisions on whom to give funding to base on its yearly budget. They plan events around its four major campaigns, Habitat for Humanity house build, Food Drive, School Supply Drive and Toys for Tots Drive, to give its employees multiple chances throughout the year to participate.
The PluggedIn committee’s Charlotte location recently donated $1500 to Loaves and Fishes, while the North Carolina employees donated $370 and 541 pounds of food. Associates were allowed to wear jeans to work on Thursdays in April, provided they donated either 5 canned goods or $5. This is Shealy’s second year of helping Loaves & Fishes. Pictured are Don Masters and Lucy Mitchell, CRFE (Director of Development & Public Relations).
In South Carolina, the PluggedIn committee donated $1500 to Harvest Hope, while the South Carolina employees donated $435 and 445 pounds of food. Again, associates were allowed to wear jeans to work on Thursdays in April, provided they donated either 5 canned goods or $5. This is Shealy’s second year of helping Harvest Hope. Pictured (below) are Karen McLeod, Tina Fiorey, and Denise Holland (CEO).
Shealy Electrical Wholesalers has had a presence in North and South Carolina for almost seventy years—its associates are part of the fabric of the communities where the branches are located. It is important to Shealy that it participates in helping build successful communities. Its employees are some of the most generous in the industry and have a great sense of pride in working for an organization that donates to charities and gets them involved whenever possible. It’s both fulfilling and humbling to be able to build, give or donate to those who are less fortunate in its own community.
