“TO THE WORLD YOU MAY JUST BE ONE PERSON, BUT TO ONE PERSON YOU MAY BE THE WORLD” ~ B. SNYDER
Big hearts and big ideas are a great combination. Helping others is at the core of Unified’s culture. Volunteering and serving others fosters teamwork while introducing us to fresh ideas and new people.
So we asked ourselves – why not also connect with our business partners to contribute time, talent and funds to make a difference in our communities? And we set out to chart a movement of serving others while generating positive buzz about our industry.
The result? A new dimension to our business model in which we and our partners bring industry altruism and compassion to the local level where we live, work, and raise our families.
We call it CONTAGIOUS COMPASSION.
Do you have a cause for which we could we could come alongside and join you? Let us know!

In DFW, we were able to be present as a few of the kids went ‘shopping’ to pick out their costumes….priceless to hear their squeals and giggles! The donated candy will be used for treat bags given at all 3 Tarrant County locations on Halloween. In Houston, the crew was able to participate with the kiddos in a Halloween parade and trick or treat around the facility.
