Safelite Begins Meals-on-Wheels Delivery Route
May 31, 2011
Safelite AutoGlass recently launched a corporate delivery route for Meals-on-Wheels, a program provided by LifeCare Alliance. Forty-five associates volunteered to rotate the weekday route in Columbus, Ohio, using a Safelite AutoGlass vehicle provided by the company, according to a recent news release.
The program is part of the company’s Associate Volunteer Day program, in which employees receive a paid day off to volunteer a full 8-hour day at a charity of choice. For the Meals-on-Wheels program, employees are using one hour of their volunteer day time along with their lunch hour to participate.
“I appreciate our associates’ support of this program as our efforts to deliver Meals-on-Wheels as it saves LifeCare Alliance $12,000 per year, which is equivalent of the salary of a paid driver,” says Tom Feeney, president and CEO of Safelite AutoGlass. “More importantly, our volunteers might be the only smiling faces the Meals-on-Wheels clients see each day. Our associates are making a difference by being involved.”
