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.
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:
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
