Giving Back

It’s About People

As a family company, R.H. White is devoted to the communities in which we live and work.

Supporting efforts to help others in our neighborhood and around the world, we routinely organize charitable events involving employees and their families.

Through the years, we’ve devoted countless volunteer hours and provided funds, labor, equipment, and other resources for a wide range of local and national causes and outreach programs. These include Easter Seals, Multiple Sclerosis Society, Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation, Alzheimer’s Association, American Cancer Society, Jimmy Fund, Community Harvest Project, American Red Cross and many more.

Giving back has always been a core value for the company and, more importantly, its employees. Much of what we get involved in is driven and managed by our employees who demonstrate time and time again that they have very giving hearts. Whether they are planting vegetables, cleaning up neighborhoods, running marathons or even riding in the Pan-Mass Challenge, they’re doing it to help others.

As part of our 95th Anniversary, we’re going to highlight some of our countless ways of giving back. Our goal this year is to have at least 95 ways in which we do so. So, check back often to see how the R.H. White Companies and its employees are making a difference where we live and work.
