Community Impact
When you join our team, you’ll enjoy countless ways to volunteer and support the arts, nonprofit charities, and community programs. Because giving back is who we are, and it’s just one of the ways we live our Purpose to improve the health and well-being of our customers and communities.

Our employees help us realize that Purpose by giving fearlessly of their time and resources to community organizations across the state. Our employees have volunteered thousands of hours building bikes and playgrounds, packing backpacks, bundling diapers, and more.

We're investing in and working with our state's network of nonprofits to provide access to the basics: safe housing, healthy food, early childhood education and quality health care — as well as reliable transportation to get to work, school, and medical care. Because we believe all North Carolinians should have the chance to live their healthiest life.
