Our Involvement

Core to NELSON’s mission is our commitment to partnering with the communities where we work and live to sustain them, as well as creating positive change through civic engagement and socially responsible behavior.
Our Involvement

Each year, our Teammates donate thousands of hours to help feed, clothe, and fundraise for their communities to improve the lives of thousands every day.

With more than 200 community partners around the globe, NELSON Teammates are designing spaces that empower and help strengthen those impacted by cancer. Through food donations, NELSON Teammates are helping to feed the hungry. And with gentle acts of kindness, NELSON Teammates are providing individuals with hats, gloves, and scarves to fight the winter cold.
