Personally, I like that we’re not just a company – we’re part of the community.
I've always been the type of person who likes to give back. At Aaron's, we strive to make a difference in the 2,000 plus communities we serve every day. Every year, associates donate thousands of associate hours to community service projects, and the company has been proud to commit millions of dollars in goods and services to worthy causes. It's nice to know my employer cares about me, and the places we call home.
Aaron’s Community Outreach Program (ACORP)
Aaron’s is dedicated to supporting charitable non-profit organizations and embracing each community by giving back. Each year we donate more than 10,000 associate hours and $1.5 million to national and local charity partners across the country.
We pride ourselves in practicing what we preach by making Community Outreach a significant part of our Annual National Managers Meeting, in turn making a big impact in each city we visit. In March 2013, more than 2,000 managers from Aaron’s, Inc. dedicated a day of service to hundreds of Nashville, TN area families in need. This city-wide initiative provided an investment of more than $500,000 in product and monetary donations and 5,000 hours of service to seven non-profit organizations in Middle Tennessee. Check out our managers in action!
Also throughout the year, our associates proudly lend a helping hand to hundreds of neighborhood service events. At the end of the day, our work has a purpose and our goal is to make a meaningful difference. Here are just a few of the many organizations we have supported:
- Warrick Dunn Charities
- Kurt Warner’s First Things First Foundation
- Boy and Girl Scouts of America
- Make-A-Wish Foundation
- American Cancer Society
- Hands On Atlanta
- Boys and Girls Clubs of America
- Wounded Warrior Project
- Armed Forces Foundation
- Ronald McDonald House
- Food Banks across the country
- Local schools and community programs
- And many more…
