Southeastern Serves is a program dedicated to giving back to communities across Southeastern's footprint by having associates of all levels get involved with providing for the less fortunate.

"Through Southeastern Serves, we are able to give back and strengthen the communities who have supported us over the years."
This year, 572 Southeastern associates across 17 service centers and support center divisions participated in Southeastern Serves projects ranging from volunteering at food drives and soup kitchens, to providing school supplies and yard work.
These projects were with more than 15 various organizations including the San Antonio Foodbank in San Antonio, Texas, Resurrections in Lexington, S.C., Coats for the Cold in Knoxville, Tenn., Georgia Sheriff's Youth Homes in Dalton, Ga. and the Charlotte Rescue Mission in Charlotte, N.C.
