COMMITTING TO COMMUNITIES
At Carter, community involvement is a hallmark of our corporate mission and a way of life. For over five decades, we have had the privilege to serve the communities where we live and work. Each year, we volunteer thousands of hours, including company-sponsored time and give to the causes that move us. Over the past three years, we have given over a half a million dollars to over 170 causes. A few of our proudest accomplishments include:
Atlanta Public Schools
In 1993, Carter kicked off a partnership with Atlanta Public Schools, by implementing a mentoring program for at-risk children, which encourages our associates to mentor children on company time for four hours a month throughout the school year. Carter associates have provided over 10,000 hours of tutoring and mentoring and participate in special events, including job shadowing, Principal-for-a-Day and Career Day. Our associates have also contributed funds for a new playground and computer equipment for the school.
