Long live ABC DAY!

We look forward to this special partnership moment every year when long-time Gladden supporter Aramark and their team come to Gladden as part of their ABC (Aramark Building Communities) program!

This month, Aramark’s team of 15 volunteers delivered an incredible day of time, talent, and treasure, leveraging their $6,000 grant gift to the organization with good, old-fashioned care and critical labor in support of our food pantry.

Our ABC Day partnership comes with a comprehensively funded project: in this case, preparing and organizing women’s, children’s, and general-use hygiene kits, packing produce, unboxing, and shelving food—all after giving the pantry a needed deep clean. 

Aramark is truly about the communities they serve, says Gretchen Slusser, Retail Programs Manager.

“We want to give back—that is why we all unite to make the place we live in better. It’s just a great feeling,” she said. 

The thought and care they put into the day not only bolstered the impact on the quality of services we deliver every day but also made a significant difference in the lives of our community members.

We can’t say thank you enough for such a meaningful day of community work on behalf of our families and our mission!
