Supporting Boys & Girls Clubs of America

Facilities Management, Corporate Social Responsibility, Americas, Service Provider News

Aramark is donating a percentage of the sales from its javia and premium Reserve by javia coffee brands to Boys & Girls Clubs of America.


Last year the company provided more than a billion cups of coffee and 400 million cold drinks in workplaces around the United States.

 

Both coffee brands have been designated "Good Cause Coffee" by the Good Cause Coffee Campaign which has donated some US $500,000 to various community centers across the country during the last five years.

 

Aramark has been a corporate partner of Boys & Girls Clubs of America since 2019, and is supporting the 160-year old national organization of 4,600 kids and youth clubs which serves over 4.7 million young people with its philanthropic program. Several Aramark staff also provide support as volunteers.

 

Aramark is also examining ways of further supporting Boys & Girls Clubs of America with its Be Well. Do Well corporate and social responsibility initiative which includes a focus on positively impacting community health, wellness and workforce programs.

 

Chad Royal-Pascoe, National Vice President for Corporate and Cause Partnerships at Boys & Girls Clubs of America, says:

"We are so excited to be the beneficiary of Aramark’s ‘Good Cause Coffee’ this year.

 

"These donations will help us reach more youth and give them access to the tools and resources they need to succeed in life. We are so thankful to Aramark and their commitment to great futures."

 

Jim Frost, President of Aramark’s Refreshment Services division, adds:

"We’ve made it part of our mission and promise to give back to the local communities in which we live and work.

 

"Our Refreshments team is pleased to offer a high quality, whole bean coffee program, with Reserve by javia, along with our traditional javia coffees. We’re delighted to be able to energize not only workplaces, but also a very deserving cause."
