U.S. Sugar and Our South
U.S. Sugar is actively engaged in community outreach to strengthen and support our employees and our
neighbors. Our employees contribute thousands of volunteer hours annually to civic, social and educational
causes, and U.S. Sugar donates generously to local events, organizations, schools, sports teams, arts and social
programs. Our charitable work seeks to make a significant difference in the lives of those around us.
Participants in Civic Life
U.S. Sugar is proud to support youth athletics and various programs throughout the community. We sponsor Little League teams, donate equipment and uniforms to area schools and take part in walks to help children with serious medical conditions. The people of U.S. Sugar have coached soccer, baseball and softball teams. Our employees have partnered with camps and provided sno-cones to make their summer days even sweeter. With each new school year, our employees provide the tools young students need to succeed, such as backpacks, school supplies and even new drumline uniforms. Giving back to the community is part of our history and our culture.
A Focus on Well-Being
Concern for the health and well-being of our employees and neighbors drives our support for programs that nurture a healthy, active lifestyle. The programs we support get people moving in a healthy direction by encouraging them to make better food choices, maintain a healthy weight, quit smoking and become more physically active. Our involvement in health fairs, golf tournaments, weight loss programs and other health-related activities is designed to help our community members grow healthy together.
A Long History
U.S. Sugar donates generously to local social programs and schools. We have sponsored summer reading programs, donated agricultural equipment for a school mechanics program and funded student scholarships. Our annual shoe drive has resulted in several thousand pairs of new shoes to local children through the Laces of Love program. Working to make a difference in the lives of people around us is an important part of what we do and who we are.
Improving Communities One House at a Time
U.S. Sugar partners with Habitat for Humanity to build new homes for local families. We believe strongly that improving communities happens one house at a time and one family at a time, and we stand proudly with all of our employees who volunteer their time to make the homes a reality.
