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 to bring our mission statement “To Change the World One Linear Foot at the Time” to life.
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 office.
Our 2021 Helping Hands Project benefitted the Wayne County Salvation Army. We became aware of an issue with the Family Store’s 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 and pilfered by visitors. The mess left behind had 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, not to mention the loss from the sales of the donations spoiled to taken. A perimeter fence with gates around the parking lot and dumpster would be a solution to the problem. On May 10, 2021 the SFC Goldsboro team completed the project. The Seegars Fence team was excited to give back to the community that has been so good to them since 1949, and looks forward to the next project in 2022!!!
