G&K Services, Inc. announced that it has donated more than 70,000 pieces of new or gently used work apparel to United Way of Greater Atlanta over the past year. The donated uniforms will be used to assist regional work readiness and job training programs supported by United Way. Over the past two years, G&K Services has donated nearly $1 million worth of work pants, shirts and other clothing to United Way of Greater Atlanta.

“We’re pleased to continue our support of United Way and its partner organizations in the Atlanta area,” said Jeffrey L. Wright, G&K’s Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. “G&K’s success depends on people working. So it’s gratifying to see our donated uniforms used to improve job training and education programs that help people develop workplace skills.”

“The uniforms G&K donated are being given to individuals who want to work and improve their lives,” said United Way of Greater Atlanta Chief Financial Officer Mark Sutton. “This contribution goes a long way in supporting our organization’s efforts to prepare people for work that pays a living wage and, ultimately, to help them become financially self-sufficient. United Way of Greater Atlanta is grateful for its partnership with G&K Services, and we acknowledge that the worth of this generous gift far exceeds its dollar value.”

G&K Services is committed to Building Communities that Work, supporting non-profit organizations focused on educating, training and clothing the workforces in our communities. Our efforts are directed at helping people reach their full potential, especially in their work and careers.
