G&K Services, Inc., a leading provider of uniforms and facility services programs, has selected 15 nonprofit organizations to receive annual grants from the G&K Services Foundation. The mission of the G&K Services Foundation is Building Communities that Work, which focuses on helping people reach their full potential, especially in their work and careers.
