In 2012 AFL celebrated its annual worldwide week of service during the week of October 6 by giving back to the communities and by participating in service projects. This is the fifth year in a row that AFL and its facilities around the globe extended outreach to its communities.
Associates in South Carolina kicked off the week of service with a food drive that supported the local community. On Thursday, AFL associates participated with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s annual Light the Night® walk. Over 70 AFL donors including friends and family came out that evening to participate. With a sponsorship of $2,500 made possible by AFL’s Community Outreach Program and $7,000 in donations raised by AFL associates, close to $10K was provided to LLS in support of its mission.
Lastly, AFL volunteers participated in an ACT project, supporting Project HOPE Foundation, an organization that supports children with autism and their families in the upstate. Volunteers worked exchange stations at the relay event, and presented a $3,000 grant to the organization made possible by AFL’s Community Outreach Program.
Associates in Monterrey, Mexico participated in an ACT project that supported a local school by painting the rooms, wall to ceiling, and installing roof insulation. Thirty AFL volunteers plus friends and family volunteered that day. AFL’s Community Outreach Program provided a $3,000 grant to help with supplies needed that day.
AFL associates in Monroe, NC partnered with the Alliance for Children, an organization dedicated to helping teen mothers stay in school. Associates donated to the “Diaper and Wipe Drive.”
Associates at AFL’s Belmont and Lowell facilities donated gently used and new coats to benefit the homeless in both communities as well as canned food to local food pantries.
Associates in Swindon participated in “coffee morning” to raise funds for MacMillan Cancer Support, an organization that provides practical, medical and financial support for better cancer care. Over $1,600 was raised through the cake sale and AFL matching funds.
