PHILADELPHIA--()--For more than a decade, employees from Aramark (NYSE: ARMK), a leading global provider of food and facilities services, give back to their local communities by committing to a day of volunteering on the company’s global day of service, Aramark Building Community Day (ABC Day). This year is no different. Today, more than four thousand volunteers, in 13 countries, will participate in projects that address critical issues and positively impact communities by enabling hospitality industry employment opportunities, increasing access to healthy food, and encouraging environmental stewardship.

“In an extension of our year-round efforts to strengthen local communities, we unite our employees around the world on one day, and encourage them dedicate their time, energy, and expertise to service projects in their local neighborhoods,” said Jami Leveen, Vice President of Community Partnerships at Aramark. “In the first ten years, nearly 55,000 employees have volunteered on ABC Day, and we are overwhelmed and humbled by the thousands of employees who have stepped up to volunteer this year.”

This ABC Day, Aramark volunteers will participate in projects benefiting more than 100 local communities in United States, Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Chile, China, Germany, Great Britian, Ireland, Mexico, Northern Ireland, Spain, and South Korea.

Some of the projects in the U.S. include:

  • Chicago: Volunteers will refurbish the music room and clothing closet and engage students in networking games and career exploration activities at Lawrence Hall in the South Shore neighborhood.
  • Dallas: Volunteers will assemble kits for foster families; improve the recreational facilities with general clean up, light landscaping, and maintenance; and sort and process shoes for distribution at Buckner Children and Family Services.
