WGI’s focus is towards growth and development of our future by participating in various community activities.  Mentoring children within the Richardson Independence School District is rewarding because the children are interactive on what it takes to be an entrepreneur. We support the lunch buddy program at Mark Twain Elementary whereby we spend time just talking offline to different students that need guidance and show them that we care.

The enhancement of our employees is an integral part of our vision.  Goal setting is essential when planning activities.  Various team-building events are held throughout the year.  "Just Balling", our championship status bowling team was designed to compete and network with other companies. Monthly, we invite guest speakers from the corporate sector as well as small business owners and motivational speakers to focus on personal and professional growth. 

WGI has been blessed to be in business since 1986.  We are constantly faced with challenges and obstacles to overcome.  We continue to strive to stay focused and grounded as we continue to grow.  Recognizing our blessings while creating a closer bond, once a month we fellowship at various employees’ house of worship. WGI’s employees also fellowship with their area care group or life center clusters, this includes church members who live within the employees’ community. “I am excited about going to work at WGI to know that they support my faith. The respect that the management team at WGI shows to their employees and contractors shows me that WGI not only talks about its belief system, but it also allows its employees the freedom to embrace the community and their church practices”, says WGI’s Deborah Johnson.

Unity in the community is how WGI reaches to support organizations in need.  Currently we provide the Samaritan Inn, a homeless shelter for battered women in McKinney throughout the year with donations and supplies so that they can continue to provide for families in need but not in greed. Other organizations and activities that WGI supports are mentoring to former prison inmates, participating in The Race for the Cure with the Susan B Komen Cancer Research Foundation, The Kidney Foundation, donating food and clothing to families.

WGI is committed to involvement in the community. Several employees are active in volunteer organizations throughout the Metroplex. We have included some inspirational stories about our experiences.
