Origin of the Five Stones Name

Our name is taken from 1 Samuel 17:40, “…and he chose for himself five smooth stones from the brook…” Each stone represents a corporate culture value:

  • Quality
  • Courage
  • Honesty
  • Integrity
  • Trust

According to the scripture, young David was able to defeat the mighty Goliath with five smooth stones taken from a nearby brook. “David and Goliath” is now a proverbial expression for a small force overcoming giant challenges.


5SRC actively supports community and charitable organizations and activities.  With the goal of using employee and corporate resources to help others, 5SRC established an outreach program to enable and encourage our employee family to work together in support of local and national service projects and programs.

This outreach program enabled 5SRC to create their own Corporate Charitable Fund through the Huntsville Community Foundation.  The 5SRC fund is “Stepping Stones.”  Employees sign up to participate with a monthly “gift.” 5SRC matches our employee’s “gifts” (up to $200 per employee, per year) and the fund is managed by an employee committee for project and program activities and distributions.  Distributions to charities (selected by our employees) takes place on an annual basis.  Since its inception, Stepping Stones has contributed over $100,000 to local and national charities.
