Eastern Industrial Supplies, Inc is a company that has been a blessing to my family and me in several different ways. Not only did the company give me the opportunity to work for them to fulfill my internship requirements for school, but they have also opened the doors for me to stay here and begin my career.

Our Director of Eastern Cares, Floyd Parker, is presently overseas working with Teleios Ministry. Floyd is working with a team of individuals on a multi-faceted trip to Africa this year with not only different objectives but also with team members from across the globe. Below Floyd is pictured with women from the Kidetete church. These women are thanking Floyd for delivering the donated women’s health packets. Check out the Teleios Ministry Blog to learn more about his trip.
Eastern Industrial Supplies, Inc. established the Eastern Cares program in 2002 dedicated to four main “Cs” of caring focusing on Company, Community, Country, and Culture.
In caring for our Company, Eastern focuses on impacting the lives of our associates.
Eastern partners with Marketplace Chaplains USA, an outreach ministry that provides teams of professionally-trained, experienced Chaplains who extend compassionate care to our most valuable asset — our Associates and their families.
Associate Emergency Fund (which is fully funded by Eastern Associates) provides financial support in times of crisis. Associates reach out to one another, promoting an environment of care and understanding.
Educational Assistance Fund assists Associates in furthering their education and training to best meet their career objectives
Scholarship Fund awards undergraduate scholarships to children or grandchildren of full-time Associates.
Adoption Assistance offers financial support to Associates who are building families.
In efforts to help support the mental and spiritual well-being of our associates, Eastern also offers Weekend-to-Remember Marriage Enrichment, Brown-Bag Lunch Bible/Book Studies, and Christmas Candlelight Services.
Defibrillator and CPR Training is mandated at each branch in order to provide a safe working environment for our associates and customers.
Eastern also partners with Teleios Services in giving associates access to a financial management specialist who can assist them with planning for the future, budgeting, tax issues and various other financial challenges.
Eastern demonstrates care and commitment to our local communities by volunteering our time and resources to local outreach programs. Locally, each branch donates to community blood drives, rescue missions, and youth and children’s homes such as the Helping Hands Ministry in Atlanta, Georgia. Furthermore, Eastern donates to organizations such as Miracle Hill Ministries, Campus Crusade for Christ and Fellowship for Christian Athletes. Also, the Cares Fund provides support to meet specific financial needs within our communities.
In caring for our Country, Eastern’s heart for caring extends beyond our physical reach taking part in national outreach efforts such as March of Dimes WalkAmerica, National Breast Cancer Awareness, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Awareness, Care Packages for U.S. Troops in Iraq, and Hurricane Katrina Relief.
Eastern’s care for other cultures is exemplified through our Eastern Cares Mission Work Program, supporting Associates with paid leave to take part in mission-oriented projects, whether at home or in distant corners of the world. Eastern Associates have traveled to Romania, Peru, Kenya, and Tanzania just to name a few in service to others. In addition, Eastern’s care is demonstrated through company donations to aid in the relief efforts after devastating natural disasters such as the Thailand Tsunami.
