Our philanthropic goals are about more than making donations. As a team, American Outback has contributed to the community we live and work in by supporting youth, education, health, and other social causes.
Here are a few of our annual contributions to the community, as part of Outback Cares.
Each year, our team heads out to the Boys and Girls Club and the Harvest Project to volunteer a couple days of our time.
Volunteering at the Boys and Girls Club gives our team the opportunity to support youth in the community, whether we’re interacting directly with the kids, painting, or gardening at the club.
At Harvest Project, an organization providing local families with food, clothing, and support, team members can volunteer in a variety of ways. Our team can choose to sort clothes, make lunches for other volunteers, or help with food hampers and restocking shelves.
At this event, our team heads to a local beach to clean up garbage and debris from the shoreline, followed by a company BBQ back at head office.
Each American Outback team member is given a monetary credit to Kiva, a micro-loan site that supports entrepreneurs in developing countries around the world. To date, our team has loaned money to aspiring business owners in countries including Bolivia, Philippines, Peru, Samoa.
Every year around the holiday season, our team comes together for a little friendly competition to collect non-perishable items that American Outback donates to a local food bank.
Groups have fun motivating each other to collect as many items as possible, and we’ll often take part in End-Hunger Games, allowing our team to donate even more non-perishables to charity.
Over the years, our team has also been involved in many employee-driven charitable causes. American Outback is proud to help members of our team in supporting the philanthropic organizations that are important to them, such as:
