Ask any GME Supply employee what makes our workplace different from traditional safety companies and you’ll hear: honesty, accountability, innovation, creativity, tenacity, integrity, urgency, charity, loyalty, and respect. These words are present at every desk and are featured on walls throughout our headquarters. We pride ourselves on using these traits and philosophies to not only improve ourselves but to improve the lives of everyone around us. This week our Gear Experts® are proud to announce our partnership with the Tower Family Foundation.
The Tower Family Foundation
We’d all like to live in a world where accidents don’t happen. And part of our mission here at GME Supply is to help provide accurate training and equipment to prevent as many accidents as possible. But sometimes accidents do happen and the hardships these accidents cause can go well beyond the job site.
The Tower Family Foundation (Tower Industry Family Support Charitable Foundation) “was established to help provide assistance to the family members of a severely injured, permanently disabled, or deceased tower worker injured or killed in an accident stemming from working at heights on communication structures or other on the job-related activities that tower workers are involved in on a daily basis”. This organization is a 501c-3 non-profit foundation – meaning their mission is to help, not make a profit.
GME Supply + Tower Family Foundation
GME Supply and its employees are always looking for opportunities to help our communities. That’s why we are so excited to announce that we have officially teamed up with the Tower Family Foundation to help raise money to help the families of tower climbers across the country. All donations made to the Tower Family Foundation are used “to provide a funding “bridge” to the affected families to help pay for immediate needs and help defray other related costs that families experience in a post-accident or fatality situation”.
As part of our efforts to help raise money, we are launching the brand-new GME Supply "Climb Higher" Tower Family Foundation Donation T-Shirt. All proceeds from this shirt will be donated directly to the Tower Family Foundation. Show off your tower climbing pride while simultaneously providing support to injured tower climbers and their families with this durable double-needle stitched shirt. You can find out more information about, and purchase the shirt, by clicking here.
