    Our Roots
    Operating Area



At GUARD, we are extremely proud of our community involvement, which is part of the stated mission of the organization.  Through a group of volunteers called our Special Projects Committee (SPC), GUARD employees contribute their money and time, including a great deal of "work hours," to valuable, community-based activities.  For example, well over 150 tons of food have been donated to kitchens, shelters, and food banks via the United Way’s “Christmas-in-July” program (a long-time favorite).  Our people have held fundraisers, purchased holiday gifts, bowled, run, walked, eaten, and purchased bunches of every imaginable kind of flower in support of worthwhile causes.  We are extraordinarily proud of our staff’s accomplishments, reinforcing their efforts whenever possible.  The GUARD Foundation, our corporate service body, matches employees' contributions dollar for dollar and also independently supports select civic organizations and educational institutions.  We believe service of this kind has helped make us a closer-knit family.  Together, we have assisted dozens of agencies in promoting their goals and have touched thousands of lives in the process.

In 2002, GUARD was honored as an Employer of the Year by United Rehabilitation Services, a not-for-profit agency recognizing our corporate efforts and support.
