Our employees contribute to the community by giving their time and money to many charitable organizations. In 2006 the Resurgent Humanitarian Council was formed for the express purpose of overseeing the charitable giving and volunteer efforts of the employees of Resurgent in Greenville. In Cincinnati, the Community Action Council was formed for the same purpose. Through these two committees we have been able to expand the scope of our volunteer efforts through organizations such as Meals on Wheels, Habitat for Humanity, Metropolitan Arts Council, Hands On Greenville, and the Susan G. Komen Foundation to name a few.
