Imagine dedicating one month each year to help others

Each year, AFL associates around the world take part in AFL’s Worldwide Month of Community Service, engaging in projects that support our communities and invest in the future.

All over the world, associates on six continents reach out to help by collecting food, clothing, shoes and other items to donate to the community; by forming an ACT (AFL Community Team) and providing service that also generates supplies or funding to nonprofit organizations; or by investing in the environment and planting trees. The possibilities are endless with new projects implemented each year.

Spartanburg, South Carolina

Sixty-five AFL associates volunteered their time on two Habitat for Humanity® Builds in Greenville and Spartanburg, helping on homes for local low income families. At both events, associates painted, installed trim, shelving and door hardware as well as completed unfinished interior and exterior work. Alongside participating in Habitat for Humanity, AFL held two collection drives during the month of April. Associates donated gently used purses, scarves, jewelry and accessories to “Purses for a Purpose,” supporting Middle Tyger Community Center and donated gently used or new books to Leadership Spartanburg to support several nonprofit organizations in the area. 

Belmont, NH and Lowell, MA

AFL’s Test and Inspection division volunteered their time to help the homeless in their local communities. Teams from both locations volunteered at two organizations serving the homeless — The Lowell Transitional Living Center (LTLC) in Lowell, MA and The Belknap House in Laconia, NH. Volunteers at LTLC organized clothing that was donated for the homeless and will help those living in the shelter. Volunteers at The Belknap House spent two days assisting with renovations and outdoor clean-up to the home. 

Atlanta, Georgia

Six AFL associates participated in donating 15 shoeboxes to United Way’s Shoebox Project in support of homeless women and children. The shoeboxes contained many basic supplies, such as soap, hair care products, sun protection, socks, and much more. This year, more than 38,000 shoeboxes were donated on Mother’s Day to 181 agencies to help homeless women and children.  

Czech Republic

Over 45 AFL associates participated in “Clean the Czech Republic,” spending half of their Saturday cleaning the old quarry in Brno, a very popular area where many spend their free time. Thousands of people across the country participate in this project every April.

Monterrey, Mexico

A team of 22 AFL associates and their family members participated in the Metroplex Park Rehabilitation project. AFL Volunteers spent their day painting and restoring waste cans, benches and playground equipment at the Metroplex Park. When the park was created, no investments were made for the upkeep of the area. 

Milton Keynes, UK

Eight FibreFab associates volunteered at the Milton Keynes Food Bank, a charity who aims to prevent a child or adult going to bed hungry. These associates distributed food parcels to those in need, organized food by dates and unloaded boxes and boxes of donations. During the month of April, associates donated canned foods and toiletries that were given to the Food Bank on the volunteer day. 


Australia and New Zealand associates gave back to their broader community by holding a clothing drive for their Fijian neighbors whose community was destroyed by the recent cyclone. AFL associates partnered with the Fiji Seniors Club, to send containers full of clothing, blankets, stationery and books to meet the needs of the devastated community. AFL associates collected and donated 330 pounds worth of supplies.
