We Care.

It's a value that is embodied by Ascend employees and portrayed by the ways we serve our communities. The words sound feeble by themselves, but when hundreds of employees are dedicated to upholding this value the simple words become a profound impact. 

When tornadoes ripped through Decatur, Alabama twelve years ago, some employees lost everything. In their worst moments though, their colleagues rallied around them, ready to help pick up the pieces. These employees and their selfless actions would become the catalyst for Ascend Cares, effectively kickstarting over a decade of service and hands-on work in our local communities that makes a difference in the lives of others.

 

In 2022, we invested nearly $2 million into our communities and the lives of our neighbors, employees and families.
