Aramark, a global leader in food, facilities and uniforms, is City Year’s official Apparel Partner, providing significant in-kind support valued at $1.2 million to outfit over 3,000 AmeriCorps members annually.
Aramark’s mission of enriching and nourishing lives is connected to their philanthropic investments in various areas including education. By partnering with City Year to redesign its uniform for City Year’s 30th anniversary, Aramark played a pivotal role in the work of City Year AmeriCorps members, who serve in more than 300 high-need schools across the country and wear their uniform proudly each day.
“The City Year uniform represents a big idea—that from year to year, school to school, city to city, and generation to generation, there is an unbroken chain of idealism expressed by the young people who serve with us. When our students see someone in the City Year jacket, they know that person is someone they can trust—and Aramark’s partnership with us on the launch of this new uniform helps that connection happen.”
Michael Brown, CEO and co-founder of City Year
