Supporting the Community that Supports Us

During this time of year, it is important to take the time to reflect on what we are grateful for and to celebrate the things that add positivity to our lives, both on a personal and professional level. Here at AES, we are incredibly grateful for our dedicated team members, our valued customers and partners, and the welcoming community in which we do business. These are the people and organizations that support us every day, and we try to give back to them as much as we can throughout the year.

One way we do this is through our annual food drive to benefit the Chester County Food Bank, a great organization that manages a network of food cupboards, hot meal sites, shelters, and other social service organizations to deliver food to people and families in need throughout our county. According to Feeding America, 42.2 million Americans live in food-insecure households. We are proud to play a part in helping the Food Bank alleviate this hunger problem in our area, and provide our neighbors that have limited or uncertain access to adequate food with meals, especially around the holiday season.

How You Can Contribute

During the month of December, AES will be collecting non-perishable food items for the Chester County Food Bank at our offices located at 180 and 176 Quaker Lane in Malvern, PA. We encourage you to stop by to drop off a donation (and say hello to our team!). Your donations will go directly to the Food Bank’s partners, comprised of 120 food cupboard and social services agencies across Chester County. In fact, since 2009 the Chester County Food Bank has provided over 2.5 million pounds of food items to those in need within our local community.

We hope that you had an enjoyable and relaxing Thanksgiving and thank you for helping us in our effort to give back and support those in need. Every donation makes a difference and shows how amazing our community, team, and customers are.

Happy Holidays from AES!
