The holiday season is a time for ugly sweaters, bad caroling and celebrating with friends and family. It’s also a time for businesses to practice good corporate citizenship. ASC seeks opportunities to volunteer and give back to the communities we live and work in throughout the year. This holiday season we are also taking time to lead a building-wide food drive in partnership with the Food Bank for Westchester.
To strengthen our community relationships, we are coordinating the event with the people we see every day–our neighbors in the ArtsWestchester building. Flyers are posted, emails have been distributed and strategically placed donation boxes are filling up. You can contribute to this great charity too by leading your own food drive or by making a cash donation. For every $1 donated, the Food Bank for Westchester can deliver $4 in food to those in need.
Located in Elmsford, the Food Bank for Westchester distributes more than 7.6 million pounds of food annually, providing 6.3 million meals to hungry people in Westchester County. The Food Bank for Westchester is at the forefront of the fight to end food insecurity and is always looking for people and organizations to contribute their time, money or collected goods to end hunger in our area.
Happy holidays from everyone at ASC!

All too often, individuals working in public service, whose jobs require them to put their lives at risk every day, do not receive the recognition they deserve. To show our support for the men and women we turn to in an emergency, ASC spent this year’s 9/11 Memorial Day donating blood and assembling Thank You packages for first responders at the Westchester County’s 9/11: Serve + Remember event, coordinated by Volunteer New York!
Volunteering is part of who we are and what we do. It’s deeply embedded in the ASC culture. As a socially responsible company, we reduce our impact on the environment through commuter benefits and give back to our community with pro-bono causes like Warrior Hike and volunteer days. We seek work that is meaningful and changes lives. Over the years, we’ve discovered that volunteering is not only inherently meaningful, it can also change our lives.
Just last week our lives were directly impacted by emergency personnel when one of our employees got stuck in an elevator. In rapid response, members of the White Plains Fire Department came to the rescue. The incident added to our sense of appreciation when we gathered with other volunteers at the County Center, as we stood collectively to say thank you to those who stand ever ready to take care of people in need.
As we put down roots in White Plains, it’s important that we continue our commitment to corporate responsibility in our new community. Friday’s event was our first of many volunteering events to come.
