Retail Business Services

Retail Business Services held its annual Fall Day of Service on Sept. 29, with hundreds of employees across its seven campuses taking part in a food-focused volunteer effort that supported 18 local hunger-relief organizations.

In addition to the more than 750 volunteer hours, Retail Business Services donated more than $35,000 in cash and resources to the organizations.

Retail Business Services’ annual Fall Day of Service is part of its RBS Cares program, which recognizes the importance of serving the communities where its employees live and work. 

Some of the beneficiaries across the company’s East Coast and Chicago markets included the Salvation Army in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and Quincy, Massachusetts; Harvest Hope Food Bank in Mauldin, South Carolina; Maryland Food Bank in Landover, Maryland; Rowan Helping Ministries in Salisbury, North Carolina; and Preble Street Food Security in Scarborough, Maine.

The company also offered two in-office opportunities this year for employees with tighter schedules. In Carlisle, associates packed personal hygiene kits to benefit clients of Big Spring Area Food Bank. And in Quincy, employees packed winter outreach bags to support the Pine Street Inn Homeless Shelter.

“As the service and support arm for the local brands of Ahold Delhaize USA, we know the importance of having access to food,” said Roger Wheeler, president. 

“I’m grateful for our RBS associates who stepped up to help our local nonprofit partners last Friday, helping to fight hunger in the communities where we live and work.”
