Aramark Employees Prepare for Day of Community ServiceSeptember 20, 2021
On Thursday, September 23, Aramark employees around the world will participate in Aramark Building Community (ABC) Day. The workers are volunteering in a variety of in-person and virtual projects.
Employees in Nashville, Tennessee, will be planting trees in the neighborhood hardest hit by the March 2020 tornado. Those workers who prefer virtual events will build kits for Aramark’s community partners in Chicago, Dallas, and Philadelphia to distribute to families and students.
The kits will include:
- Environmental exploration kits to encourage students to get more involved with the world around them
- Healthy meal kits to inspire families to grow their own fresh herbs and explore nutritious recipes
- Outdoor camping kits as part of a special program benefiting orphaned and vulnerable children and families
- Welcome home kits featuring basic cleaning and household supplies for single parents in crisis who are transitioning to permanent housing.
“Aramark employees are resilient, passionate, and united by our purpose to have positive impact on people and planet. While COVID has impacted in-person volunteer activities, we remain committed to creatively supporting our nonprofit community partners, by providing grants, organizing small local activities, and hosting several virtual events,” said Jami Leveen, vice president of Community Partnerships at Aramark.
