Border States Electric was presented the 2016 Giving Back Award by Affiliated Distributors (AD) October 20. AD is North America’s largest marketing and buying group for construction and industrial supplies. The Giving Back Award is presented annually to an AD member or supplier who makes the success and health of their community a priority to their company.
We were chosen because of our giving-back efforts to help TNT Kid’s Fitness and Gymnastics. TNT is a gym in Fargo, North Dakota, that welcomes children of all abilities; no child is turned away for physical barriers or financial hardships. It is just one of two facilities in the United States that serves children with special needs in this way.
Our support of TNT is just one example of how we live our value to enhance the quality of life in the communities where we live.
“One of our core values is community—devoting time, talent and resources to better the communities that we live and work in,” said Patrick Novak, Vice President of Marketing, as he accepted the award. “Most importantly, I want to thank the 2,200 employee-owners across our footprint who devote their time, talent and resources to make the communities that they live and work in a better place every day.”
