Piedmont is committed to the 80 communities where we live and work. Join your coworkers for a volunteer event or create one of your own – you’ll have our support.
A History of Supporting Our Communities
Piedmont was built on character and compassion. Our founder, Richard Henson, believed that leaders should be role models who give time and talent to better their communities. He created the Richard A. Henson Foundation in 1990 and became a philanthropic force for education and entrepreneurism in Maryland. Mr. Henson’s spirit lives on in thousands of our team members who work to make their communities a better place to live.
Our annual Jet Pull raises money for United Way organizations across the country. Teams of ten compete to pull a Piedmont jet in the fastest time. Jet Pulls are held in September and October…and bragging rights are on the line.
The Do Crew offers all team members a chance to do good. From climbing to fight cancer in Flagstaff, Arizona to sorting food at the Maryland Food Bank, you’ll find creative ways to give back… and friends to do it with you. For every 50 hours of volunteering, team members receive 25,000 miles to donate to the charity of their choice.
