Acro Gives Back: A Holiday Food Drive

Acro’s Livonia Staff proudly banded together in celebration of Thanksgiving to raise funds and collect food for a local food bank, Gleaners Food Bank.  Acro’s Happening Committee wanted to find a way to give back to the community while getting in the holiday spirit, and this was a perfect fit for everyone in the company.

The Happening Committee was founded in the Finance Department to create fun and engaging events for their team and the rest of Acro.  They often focus on events that better the community, including a very successful School Supply Drive held in August.  The Committee is one of the many elements that makes Acro a great place to work.  We are so thankful for their contributions here and in the community.

Nearly all of Acro’s Corporate employees participated by bringing in canned goods, boxed foods, personal items, and donating money.  Together, Acro collected several hundred food items and raised about $300.  Acro was thrilled to see the amazing participation from our Corporate Headquarter employees.

Acro also announced that it would match donations – which doubled our contribution to Gleaners Food Bank!  It was a great event and a great reminder that giving back to the community is always worth the while.
