Aramark Volunteers at Britannia Community Services Center Society in Vancouver March 18 for First Global Volunteer Day
Mar 19, 2014 12:30 PM ET

During Aramark’s inaugural Global Volunteer Day on March 18, Vancouver-area employees joined Britannia Services Centre in the Grandview-Woodland section of Vancouver in an effort to provide children and families with better access to healthy food, nutritional education and active play and physical activity spaces. Aramark will support a year-round hub of health and wellness education and awareness. To help provide fresh, healthy food for residents of the area, volunteers built several planter beds so the community can grow their own fruits and vegetables. Aramark employees also refurbished the center’s playground and basketball courts, and added nutrition education murals to the outdoor play space to encourage healthy activity and learning at the center.         

Global Volunteer Day is an expansion of Aramark Building Community, the company’s volunteer and philanthropic program that enriches lives by helping improve family health, prepare youth and adults for work and support individuals working their way out of poverty in Vancouver and in 52 cities around the world. Through Aramark Building Community, the company donates time, expertise, financial and in-kind resources to help families in need. Since 2008, in partnership with community centers around the world, more than 20,000 Aramark employees have impacted the lives of some four million families. Please join us on Facebook.
