Giving Shelter: Housing assistance for UK’s homeless

How far will some go to help people forced to live on the street? Some concerned employees based in Hemel Hempstead, UK, slept outside for a night with only sleeping bags and cardboard for comfort. Their sacrifice helped raise funds (that Kodak Alaris matched) for DENS, a small area charity that provides housing and other assistance. The organization also supports and empowers single homeless people, and others in crisis, to transform their lives. 

Wendy Lewington (CEO) and Carol Wolstoncroft from DENS display a donation check with Hemel, UK, employees.

Heart & sole: Kodak Alaris' American Heart Association Heart Walk team in Rochester, NY, puts their heart and “sole” into participating


This incredible commitment to employee wellness extends beyond one day. Along with the launch of a global Learning Library program, we offer wellness education sessions and seminars.

Please note: While all US-based employees may participate in the annual United Way campaign, American Heart Association activities are Rochester-focused only.

Holiday Stocking: Colorado employees fill cupboards at local food pantry

Working diligently to give back during the holiday season, four teams from the Kodak Alaris Colorado campus turned a food drive into a healthy competition. Each team sought to be the one to bring in the most canned goods/boxed food to donate to the Windsor Food Pantry, just north-east of Boulder, CO. 

In only two weeks, our people collected more than 700 food items—the pantry was absolutely overwhelmed by this contribution. The Windsor Food Pantry has served over 150 families during the busy holiday season. With cupboards stocked up to overflowing, the pantry has more than enough for those who need food the most to eat their fill.

Seeds of change: United Way’s Day of Caring

Every year since Kodak Alaris began, Rochester-based employees have taken a workday to participate in the Day of Caring with the United Way. This longstanding community event helps promote the spirit and value of volunteerism while increasing awareness of local human-service agencies and schools. It also demonstrates what people working together can accomplish right where they live.

Those who come together help not-for-profit organizations that provide vital community services, including childcare, assisted living and education. Volunteers often do gardening, painting, and similar maintenance chores that save these agencies valuable time as well as money.

Sweet Ride: Rochester ADA’s Tour de Cure

The American Diabetes Association’s largest fundraising event, the Tour de Cure is not a race, it is a ride. 

Each year, Kodak Alaris hopes to attract new entrants. The Rochester-area KA team invites employees, friends and family join in the fun. 

Participation raises diabetes awareness in the community, supports life-saving research, and sends kids to a local summer camp.

Warming Trend: Winter wear for Rochester’s homeless

Kodak Alaris' IT Team in Rochester, NY donated cold-weather clothing to the Open Door Missions' CODE BLUE program people in need or who are homeless. When the temperature drops below 20 degrees Fahrenheit, CODE BLUE offers critical necessities, including blankets, hats, and gloves.

Help us support WaterAid

Why WaterAid? Because 650 million people are living without safe water.
Since 1981, WaterAid has gained valuable experience bringing safe water, sanitation and hygiene education to where it is needed most. 

Support from the global community has also helped WaterAid influence policy and practice to ensure that the vital role of water, hygiene and sanitation is recognized. 

Kodak Alaris’ donation to WaterAid constitutes a community investment and outreach that helps the environment, too. Our company chose WaterAid because of its global reach and our connection to clean-water concerns. For example, KODAK Adaptive Picture Exchange (APEX) dry lab solution takes water conservation seriously as a social imperative. 

Donate now to help end this crisis for everyone, everywhere by 2030
