Giving Back to the Community
Rhodes is more than a small business operating in communities throughout Southeast Missouri and Southern Illinois. It’s also a citizen that gives back to its local communities, schools and organizations.
Rhodes places its greatest focus and support on military and veterans’ causes. Rhodes’ commitment to honoring and supporting the individuals who have protected our country’s freedoms is inspired by its Founder, Gene Rhodes. Mr. Rhodes served in the U.S. Army during World War II and the Korean conflict.
“We proudly support military and veterans causes not only because our founder, Gene Rhodes, served in the Army during World War II and the Korean conflict but also for the tremendous sacrifices that our troops and their families continue to make today,” said Brent Anderson, Rhodes’ Vice President of Operations and Business Development.
