Great Dane Gives Back

From food drives to blood drives. From 5Ks to community clean-ups. Great Dane employees aren’t afraid to roll up their sleeves and donate their time, talents and resources to helping improve our communities. We take pride in supporting and improving the many communities we call home.

Huntsville Employees Promote Prom Safety

Great Dane Safety

In an effort to educate prom goers about the dangers of drunk driving and driving while distracted, several Huntsville employees, who are also local volunteer firefighters, participated at local high schools in a First Responders Prom Safety Awareness Event. This is the first year for the event, which was presented by the county fire departments and local leaders. "This is a very worthwhile cause, so we made sure participating employees were able to take time from their busy work schedules to participate," said Randy Greene, HR manager. "It's just another way Huntsville is giving back to the community."

Kewanee Raises Nearly $2,500 for Relay for Life

Great Dane Bake Sale

The Kewanee plant has been busy baking, eating tacos, and, yes, getting fit - all as part of fundraising efforts for the Relay for Life. In March, a Relay for Life Bake Sale brought in $735; in April, 280 employees ate "walking tacos," raising $1,400; and a 10-week "Get Fit Challenge," which rewarded the three females and three males who lost the most weight, netted $350 for the cancer charity. Kewanee employees obviously put their passion into action when it comes to raising money for a good cause. 

GDTB Donates 1,050lbs of Food

Great Dane Food Drive

Great Dane Truck Bodies once again showed their appetite for generosity by gathering 1,050 pounds of food to give to the St. Vincent DePaul's Food Pantry of Barron County, Wisconsin, during GDTB's 2nd Annual Food Drive Contest held May 8 to May 18. After a recent tornado left many local people in need, GDTB's bigheartedness couldn't have come at a better time.

When our communities are strong, we are all stronger. Great Dane and our employees are active in our communities because we want to help others succeed. We support many community events by providing volunteers or resources.
