Express associates volunteer thousands of hours each year, and our job is to provide the flexibility so they can explore that passion. While our giving philosophy is focused on economic independence for those in our community, our associates volunteer for agencies that support everything from animal welfare to building urban gardens. We have extended our efforts globally through our partnership with the MGF Touch Foundation, which supports nonprofit organizations around the world that work to end human trafficking.
On a corporate level, our community engagement philosophy has three primary focuses:
- Supporting women, men and families in their efforts to gain sustainable economic independence
- Supporting arts and culture
- Providing meaningful flexible ways for our associates to volunteer
Since we began our volunteer engagement program in the summer of 2014, our associates have donated valuable time and energy into giving back to their communities.
PRIMARY ORGANIZATIONS AND EVENTS
Dress for Success is an international not-for-profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
At Mid-Ohio Foodbank, we believe it’s not acceptable for thousands of our neighbors—most of them children and seniors—to go hungry. We aim to provide efficient, effective ways for hungry people to meet their basic food and nutrition needs.
MGF Touch Foundation's primary focus is to volunteer within organizations internationally that serve women in the prevention and elimination of human trafficking and slavery.
