Southern Eagle Distributing has been an avid community supporter over the past 30 years and we continue to do our best to assist every charitable cause we can. Decisions made for these contributions come from our Charitable Contributions Board which is comprised of our senior leadership. We try our best to meet once a month to review all submissions. However, it can be difficult due to scheduling. All submissions will receive an e-mailed response on whether Southern Eagle can or cannot contribute.
