The SMA would like to recognize Steel Dynamics, Inc. for their ability to effect positive changes in the communities where their employees live and work. The Company focuses its philanthropic efforts on organizations that have a broader impact in the community to reach the most people. This focus includes supporting higher education, human services, and economic development. In addition to SDI’s financial support, their employees donate time and talent to serve many organizations. Employees serve on boards of charities and participate in community projects such as clean-up events, tree planting, adopting families and teens for the holidays, and Red Cross blood drives – pictures below. The willingness for employees to donate their own time and money – combined with the SDI’s financial support, creates a dynamic partnership that makes a difference in the quality of life in all of their communities.
