PARSIPPANY, N.J., May 16, 2018 – Approximately 900 Pinnacle Foods Inc. (NYSE: PF) employees are volunteering in their local communities this week as part of the Company’s Pinnacle ACTs volunteerism program. Pinnacle ACTs stands for “Action Changes Things.” The Company’s efforts focus on volunteering for organizations that support the basic needs of food, shelter and the environment.
Employees from 21 Pinnacle Foods locations throughout North America will be participating in various volunteer activities at approximately 70 organizations.
“When employees from across our organization pull together in an effort to make a difference in our communities, we can change things. That’s why it’s so rewarding to engage our teams in our fourth annual ACTs week,” said Mary Beth DeNooyer, Chief Human Resources Officer. “Many of our teams support the same organizations each year and even throughout the year. It’s exciting to see the program continue to grow and reach more people.”
Volunteer activities include support for food banks, homeless shelters, animal shelters, parks and preserves, school classrooms, senior centers, and youth programs.
In addition to volunteering during ACTs week, Pinnacle employees in many locations also held donation drives.
