For Immediate Release: July 2, 2013
AtlantiCare employees joined forces with United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey June 21 for its annual Day of Action. A nation-wide effort, Day of Action provided AtlantiCare employees the opportunity to serve Career Opportunity Development, Inc. (CODI) in Egg Harbor City, which offers job training and support to individuals with disabilities and disadvantages. Ten volunteers spent three and a half hours dismantling, cleaning and relocating CODI’s onsite food pantry and helped restock food items and conduct inventory. Many volunteers returned to AtlantiCare with food donation bags to collect canned goods and other food items for the CODI pantry.
AtlantiCare is a LIVE UNITED partner, and supports United Way’s fundraising and community outreach activities in the region. AtlantiCare employees have volunteered with Day of Action for the past four years, most recently working on the Born Learning Trail in Atlantic City in 2011 and assisting with facility improvements at the Atlantic City Boys and Girls Club in 2012.
