Chairman Robert Balentine likes to say that the culture of giving back to the community starts at the top. Employees get monthly briefings on potential volunteer projects so they know where to direct their time and talent.
In Middle and South Georgia, a love for animals has traditionally meant caring for animals on a farm or feeding the family pet.
But Paul Boyer and his wife Pamela have set a new standard for giving animals dignity in their Warner Robins community. Since opening Pet Plantation and Crematory in 2003, the Boyers have operated with a belief that “pets deserve the same dignity humans do because they have served us.”

At 3Ci, it’s all about “giving forward.” As Owner & CEO Don Barden would say, “giving back assumes you took something. Great leaders ‘give forward,’ without any expectation of anything in return.” It is our mission at 3Ci to continue to invest in and serve communities and causes that positively impact the people of Georgia. You can find us taking 250 U.S. Army Rangers to an Atlanta Hawks game for Christmas every year, or working on our 14th Habitat Home this spring, or donating our time and fundraising dollars to support technology initiatives for women, minorities, and children in Atlanta. At 3Ci we believe in serving our community so much, that we made it our mission statement; “We exist to ignite the success of our people, customers, business partners, and community.” How can we serve you?

On hot summer days, many property owners, farmers and gardeners wake to the glorious sound of sprinklers – giving their precious lawns, plants or crops the important irrigation they need to grow and thrive. Because Mother Nature can be unpredictable, and humans want predictable crops, gardens and landscaping, supplemental irrigation is often necessary. Ed Klaas and his wife Silvina founded Southern Sprinkler Systems in 2000. With more than 2,350 customers across metro Atlanta, Southern Sprinklers provides irrigation services for everything from residential properties and homeowners’ associations to commercial properties and parks, including Centennial Olympic Park, and everything in between.
