The Henry County Development Authority launched a social media campaign and invited the community to join in giving thanks for the existing industriess that are giving back in a huge way.
One of the companies highlighted in HCDA's Giving Thanks for Giving Back campaign was Bennett International Transportation. Bennett International Group, LLC, located in McDonough, GA , takes pride in giving back to the community. Through the Taylor Family Foundation, the company gives a percentage of profits each quarter to nonprofit organizations in the community and beyond to help those in need. Local organizations that Bennett International Group donates time and other resources to on an ongoing basis include A Friend's House, Haven House, Hands of Hope Medical Clinic, Connecting Henry, In His Name Food Pantry, Agape Princess House and Speedway Children Charities, just to name a few. Company leadership encourages employees to be active stewards in the community by volunteering their time to community organizations and to other charitable initiatives. In Addition, the company participates in seasonal giving initiatives such as the companny canned food drive, "Truckin for Tots" and Letters to the Troops.
