The crack of hammers and the hum of saws hung over two homes in New Haven, Conn., recently as AAA Northeast employees supported a good cause.
Employees from AAA offices in Garden City, N.Y.; Providence, R.I.; and Hamden and Bridgeport, Conn., helped at a Habitat for Humanity build site in New Haven, Conn. Folks from each location used paintbrushes, drills, hammers and good old-fashioned elbow grease to help build two houses for low-income working families.
“It was a lot of work, but it was incredibly rewarding,” said Elena Dunkerton, a senior publications specialist based in Garden City. “It’s not every day that you have such a wonderful opportunity to make such a positive impact in the lives of others.”
AAA Northeast is committed to giving back to as many communities as possible throughout its six-state territory. That’s why the club offers employees paid time off to volunteer and created employee-based committees that donate to a wide variety of causes.
In recent months, employees have volunteered at or donated funds to educational institutions, food pantries, cancer and ALS research organizations, support programs for children with autism and other developmental disabilities, an urban after-school playwriting program and youth sports organizations.
AAA Northeast’s volunteerism program is just one of the many reasons folks enjoy working for the club. Explore AAA career possibilities today by checking out AAA.com/Careers.
