Making a Difference in Our Community
At Electric Guard Dog, we’re always up for a challenge and the chance to make a difference. And supporting the causes that are closest to our hearts begins right here at home.
Making spirits bright. Pouring rain and frosty temperatures didn’t stop our dedicated team from helping make the holidays a little warmer for families in our community. Electric Guard Dog is a proud participant in #FamiliesHelpingFamilies. Our team provided 4 families, 24 people, with $2,700 in gifts and food.We rallied when the storm hit. When those close to us suffered devastation and loss from the historic flooding in our home state of South Carolina, we reached out to comfort and provide financial support to our very own and their families impacted by the storm.
We lead by example. When our friends and customers at Copart set up a dunking booth to raise money for ARA’s Education Scholarship Fund, our CEO Jack DeMao went diving, being repeatedly dropped for an hour as employees stampeded the ATM to donate. EGD matched the contributions made that day.
Jack also rides many miles for multiple charity cycling events each year, including 24 Hours of Booty, the Multiple Sclerosis ride and Cystic Fibrosis Cycle for Life.
We empower our youth. Competing with her daughter in the Girls on the Run 5K is a favoriate cause for Crystal Gurtisen. She along with others on the EGD team participate in various events that help build self-confidence and change lives for girls and boys in our community and across the country.
Whether we're competing in endurance events, establishing foundations for cures, serving in soup kitchens or participating in community cleanups, you’ll find we apply the same do-whatever-it-takes commitment and positive attitude in charity as we do in business.
