Community Outreach

“They are just great partners — from the owner to the merchandiser, they are there to serve us.”

Corporate Citizenship is a key component of our Core Values. We believe in giving back to our community and offering services that benefit our employees and their families.  We do this through various outlets in our community and within our own organization:

Boys Scouts of America Tuscarora Council
We have supported the Scouts in our community by sponsoring the Boy Scouts of America Golf Tournament since 1990.
Wayne Pregnancy Center (WPC) 
We sponsor the Wayne Pregnancy Center’s 5k fundraising race, provide in-kind donations, and hire from the WPC facility when applicable.

Sherwin Herring has served as the United Way Campaign Chairman and on the Board of Directors for several years. Our employees provide annual contributions, and Southco matches 50% of those of gifts. April Garver is also a current member and has served as Past President.

Every Tuesday we provide perishables and other products to be handed out to the House of Fordham residents and the homeless in our community.
