DEFENDERS Gives Back as Part of the Newly Revamped Super Service Challenge

Habitat Build-crop

DEFENDERS is a company built on service. We are a team of humble servants who consistently find opportunities to give back to others. In fact, we even give each of our team members four service days each year to donate to a cause of their choosing. 

Giving is part of our roots, our culture…it helps define who we are. That’s why DEFENDERS founder Dave Lindsey created the Super Service Challenge. The Super Service Challenge is an organization that encourages involvement with nonprofits by matching donations and sharing the amazing stories of volunteer service with the world.

Let’s take a look to see how the Super Service Challenge just got a whole lot better.

Changes to the Super Service Challenge

In 2018, the Super Service Challenge decided on a bit of a revamp in efforts to help encourage more people to participate. At its core, the program is still dedicated to motivating others to serve.

The following are some key changes to the Super Service Challenge program:

  • Registration: One of the primary changes to the Super Service Challenge platform involves registration. All users, including nonprofit organizations, must be registered users to participate. This is a key component in helping to identify which organizations people are interested in.
  • Hashtags: The use of hashtags within the platform can help others find groups they are interested in and assist with locating particular people or organizations they want to support.
  • Groups: In the past, the Super Service Challenge was focused on company-based groups. Now, anyone can form a group of their choosing to participate in the program. A group is composed of two or more people, so grab your favorites friends, family members or co-workers and find a cause!
  • Campaign length: Previously, campaigns would be paid out to the nonprofits at the end of a year. Now, participants can choose the length of their campaign to help get money to nonprofits sooner. Every dollar counts!

Brenda Watkins, Senior Executive Assistant to the Vice Chairman at DEFENDERS, has noticed a significant improvement with the changes. She commented, “So far, all of our videos have been improved. We see more storytelling and more impactful videos than what we’ve seen in the past. People are putting more thought into it.” 

Giving back with the help of the Super Service Challenge

Giving is integral to our culture at DEFENDERS. That’s why our teams have recently participated in the newly revamped Super Service Challenge and we are proud of the work they’ve done. Take a look.

Agape Therapeutic Riding

Team members from Sales, Finance, and Field Operations got together to assist Agape Riding with loading and delivering hay. This amazing organization uses horses as a therapeutic device to help children with disabilities. Take a look at the video.

Grace Care Center

Another opportunity for giving back with the Super Service Challenge was undertaken by the DEFENDERS Giving Council. The Grace Care Center is devoted to community outreach and provides a food pantry, vehicle services, and ESL classes. The DEFENDERS Giving Council spent time helping families shop for essential items and personal care products. See the video here.

Habitat for Humanity

The DEFENDERS marketing team also embraced the opportunity to help a family in need by assisting with the Smith House build with Habitat for Humanity. This amazing group dedicated their time and energy to help build the indoor and outdoor sections of a home for a family in need. Take a peek at their video.
