Seegars Fence Helping Hands 2021 Community Project: Goldsboro Salvation Army Fence and Gate Donation
Seegars Fence Company is proud of our history of being an active and supporting member of the communities in which we have served across the Carolinas since 1949. Over the seven decades we have looked for opportunities to reach out to those in need by sponsoring the good work of veteran’s groups, local schools, public institutions, churches, charities and their fundraising activities. Beginning in 2021, Seegars Fence Company decided to take a direct step deeper by launching Seegars Helping Hands Community Project. Each year the Seegars Fence Goldsboro Team will select a community project to which perimeter security comprised of both fence and gates will be donated and personally installed by the staff working in the Seegars Corporate offices, the production crews of the fabrication and powder coat shops, and installation crews of the Seegars of Wayne County branch office. CEO Ben Seegars currently serves on the board of the Salvation Army of Goldsboro which gave him the insight of understanding the Salvation Army Family Store’s real problem of home furnishings and clothing donations that were being made outside of the regular business hours. After each weekend, the volunteers and staff would be confronted by a pile of donations around the dumpster and front door, possibly spoiled by rain, needing to be loaded up and driven to the county dump. This weekly scenario was causing the Salvation Army to absorb $20,000 in removal costs each year. A perimeter fence with gates around the building and the dumpster would be a solution to the problem. The 2021 Inaugural Seegars Community Project was off and running Chain-Link! Seegars Fence was excited to give back to the community that has been so good to them since 1949, and looks forward to next project in 2022!!!
