TDW team members strengthen the communities where they work and live. We trace this commitment to our founders, T.D. Williamson Sr. and Edna Mae, who believed that what we give back to the world is more important than what we take from it, and to T.D Williamson Jr. and his wife, Carol, (pictured) who carried on their legacy.
Today, our formal community relations program identifies opportunities for giving and volunteerism, and encourages employees to make a difference by participating in local initiatives that align with the five TDW pillars.

Thousands of Volunteer Hours Each Year
Each year, TDW employees log thousands of volunteer hours that equal hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of community impact.
Coordinating philanthropic activities isn’t something TDW leaves to chance: it’s the role of Community Relations Committees (CRCs) at nearly every TDW location.
CRCs comprise employees from different departments who manage everything from volunteer opportunities to charitable contributions. Embodying the TDW values of integrity, initiative and interdependence, each CRC is autonomous and has the freedom to plan and execute projects selected by local employees.
Projects may look different from location to location — there’s no one-size-fits-all mandate from the corporate office — but the goal is the same: to build stronger communities and make a difference in the lives of others
We take pride in giving back to our local communities around the world, working as one TDW to invest in contributions that make a difference. A significant portion of our giving goes toward Civic and Community efforts.
