Our Aspirations to Our Communities


To be a trustworthy corporate citizen and a conscientious steward of the environment.



Our Lewiston, N.C., associate Relay for Life team is consistently one of the top fund-raising teams for the American Cancer Society.

Encouraging Volunteerism

We actively encourage—and support—associate participation in the community. Many of our facilities lead their communities in fundraising for such agencies as the United Way, March of Dimes and the American Cancer Society Relay for Life. Our associates are also active in mentoring and educational programs, environmental groups, serving on the boards of non-profits, supporting community cultural and civic events and responding to crises in the community.

Recently supported organizations and projects include Big Brothers Big Sisters of Harrisonburg-Rockingham County (Virginia), Maryland Food Bank, Oyster Recovery Partnership, Georgia Rivers Alive, Wicomico County (Maryland) Mentoring Project, Project Clean Stream, Junior Achievement, Future Farmers of America (FFA) and numerous “Angel Tree” and other holiday season community activities.

Our Perdue Transportation drivers are equally active, participating in Wreaths Across America and the annual Operation "Teddy Bear" convoy, which provides truck rides each winter holiday season to developmentally disabled residents of the Holly Center in Salisbury, Md. In 2012, our truckers also participated in the “World’s Longest Convoy” to support Delaware Special Olympics.
