Company’s Mission Give Back Program Recognized for Making Local Impact
Virginia Beach, Va. April 27, 2017 – ADS, Inc. has been honored with a 2017 Good Neighbor award from VOLUNTEER Hampton Roads.
The award recognized the Virginia Beach-based government and military supply contractor for its strong employee volunteer programs and sponsorship of organizations that support the local military, veteran, and first responder communities. ADS is one of two honorees recognized in this year’s Corporate—Large category.
ADS started in Virginia Beach, so it’s important to us that we give back to the community where we live and work. This recognition is extremely meaningful because it’s an indication that we are making a difference.”
-Jason Wallace, ADS CEO
Community support is built into the culture at ADS, Wallace said. The company’s Mission Give Back program encourages employees to get involved in volunteering, fundraising, and charitable giving.
Throughout the year, ADS supports a wide range of local organizations, including the USO, Navy SEAL Foundation, Habitat for Humanity (Habitat for Heroes), The Honor Foundation, and many more, through both financial donations and hundreds of combined service hours.
Consider a few recent examples:
- In March, more than 30 ADS employees ran in the 9th Annual Spartyka Foundation Wounded Warrior 5K Run/Walk at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront.
- More than 100 ADS volunteers have worked with Habitat for Humanity South Hampton Roads over the past few years on home builds throughout the Hampton Roads area.
- ADS has partnered with ODU’s athletic department over the past three years to support Tickets for Troops, which has provided more than 5,000 free tickets to active duty and retired military for ODU sports games.
Conducted annually, the Hampton Roads VOLUNTEER Achievement Awards recognize the region's most outstanding individual and corporate volunteers. A member of the Foundation Center, HandsOn Network, and United Way of South Hampton Roads, VOLUNTEER Hampton Roads is the only comprehensive volunteer center in Hampton Roads.
