G&K Services' Employees Generously Support Greater Twin Cities United Way

G&K Services, Inc. (NASDAQ:GK) announced today that its employees across four locations in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul pledged more than $139,000 in the company’s 2013 United Way workplace campaign. The theme of G&K’s 2013 campaign was “Bridge the Gap”, bringing focus to helping people and families in the Twin Cities get back on their feet after periods of crisis. The G&K Services Foundation offered to match employees’ pledges dollar for dollar, bringing G&K’s total contribution this year to over $278,000. This was the second consecutive year in which G&K’s employees exceeded their goal to increase pledges by 10 percent over the previous year’s level.

"Our team at G&K did a remarkable job supporting this year’s United Way Campaign,” said Jeffrey L. Wright, G&K’s Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. “Through their financial generosity and volunteerism, G&K’s employees continue to make a positive difference in our community."

“We, at United Way say ‘thank you’ to G&K on behalf of those most in need in our community,” said Andy Goldman-Gray, Senior Vice President of Workplace and Marketing for Greater Twin Cities United Way. “Through G&K’s generosity, a child will have a chance for quality early learning; a senior citizen an opportunity to remain independent and a parent to receive training for a better job to improve the quality of life for their family.”

Over the past six years, G&K employees in the Twin Cities, together with contributions from the G&K Services Foundation matching program, have contributed nearly $1.4 million to Greater Twin Cities United Way. The G&K Services Foundation promotes the company’s goal of “building communities that work”, supporting charitable organizations and non-profits that help educate, train and cloth the workforces in the communities where the company does business.
