Together, We Can Transform a Community.
Why Get Involved?
Delivering meals together will help your employees build teamwork, improve cooperation and increase productivity in the workplace!
Improve Job Satisfaction
A study published by Deloitte shows that 78% of employees would rather work for an ethical and reputable company than recieve higher pay.
According to Deloitte, 91% of Fortune 500 HR managers said that “volunteering knowledge and expertise to a nonprofit can be an effective way to cultivate critical business and leadership skills,”such as project management, communication, goal-setting and evaluation.
Recruit & Engage Employees
PriceWaterhouseCoopers discovered that 88% of Millennials gravitated toward companies with pronounced Corporate Social Responsibility(CSR) programs, and 86% would consider leaving if their employer’s CSR no longer met their expectations.
Connect with Your Community
Volunteer programs also help companies ingratiate themselves to their customers, who will see — and respect — a business’ efforts to improve the community.
How it works
By sponsoring teams of employees as Adopt-A-Route volunteer drivers, you can make a huge difference in a critical area of need! Your company will become a valuable partner in addressing this large community need.
Designate a AAR leader to coordinate scheduling. The leader will choose a route and pick up site closest to their location to deliver and they will also select a day (Monday -Friday) to deliver and frequency (once a week, once every other week or once a month) of delivery.
Engage teams of two for each day your team delivers.
Set up an orientation session. A MOW rep will provide one at your site or at our offices.
Begin to deliver!
