Core Values for the Community and Environment
- We provide donation services that allow for usable clothing to be kept out of landfills and given to someone in need (with client authorization).
- We strive to provide work opportunities for the underserved and build a work culture that acknowledges our employees are the legs we stand on.
- We have a culture that cares. The positive and respectful work environment focuses on employee best practices and customer satisfaction.
- For all materials we can’t reuse, we recycle, including corrugate, plastic hangers, and packaging materials.
NARD’s story is that of the extraordinary.
NARD brings custom tailored solutions to our carrier clients, through the process of proactively assessing customer’s needs, spoken and unspoken.
