A TRADITION OF GIVING

For over 80 years, giving back to the communities where we work and live has been a priority for Storey Kenworthy.

All across the state of Iowa, whether serving on a Board of Directors, caring for animals, building a home, or mentoring at-risk teenagers, our employees are involved in their local communities.

"Through our family of companies, we provide quality products, services, and experiences to meet our customers' unique needs.  Together, we provide an engaging work culture to inspire team members contributions and to create value in the communities we serve!"

Storey Kenworthy Volunteer Time Off (VTO)

Storey Kenworthy encourages employees to be actively engaged in non-profit service and supports this effort by providing employees the benefit of Volunteer Time Off (VTO).  All full-time team members of Storey Kenworthy are encouraged to utilize up to 8 hours of VTO per year.  Team members may expend VTO in as little as 2 hour increments with organizations and causes in line with company's core values and giving priorities.  If your organization is interested in sharing a VTO opportunity with our team, please click HERE to provide additional information.

Customer Free Gift Donation:
Storey Kenworthy team members are encouraged to nominate qualified non-profits and five organizations are selected on an annual basis as our featured non-profit.

Our customers have the option to give back with us as well! Instead of choosing a free gift as a thank you for a large order, they may choose to have Storey Kenworthy donate to the featured non-profit organization. Additionally, we partner with our vendors to provide free sample packs to customers. For each sample pack that is provided, the featured vendor makes a donation to the selected non-profit.
