Rochester Education Foundation 2019 Book Drive

Kodak Alaris partnered with the Rochester Education Foundation for a book drive in the month of September to gather books and funds for schools in our area. REF is always looking for new books for students in grades K-12 with their greatest need being for younger students. REF has given over 42,000 new books to Rochester students since 2005. Our Rochester employees came together to donate 238 books for the foundation alongside a corporate donation of $500.

Make a Meal with Rochester Ronald McDonald House

Four teams from the Rochester office came together in October to cook for these lovely families and bring a home cooked meal to their plates. Not only was this a great experience for our teams but a great cause to get behind right before the holiday season. The “Make-a-Meal” volunteer opportunity was created when the director of the Ronald McDonald House realized a stocked kitchen was not enough for the families staying at the home. Even though a fully stocked kitchen was provided, families were just too tired to cook and clean after a long day at the hospital.

Australian Team Australian Institute of Packaging Collaboration

The Kodak Alaris ANZ team volunteered at the Victorian Foodbank as part of our Australian Institute of Packaging Collaboration. Over the course of 2019, our team has joined forces with the Foodbank three times! At the most recent visit, 16.7 tonnes and 30,100 meals were packed ready to be given to families less fortunate than others.

The APCO is a co-regulatory, not for profit organisation that partners with government and industry to reduce harmful impact of packaging on the Australian environment. Kodak Alaris are a member of the covenant. We are passionate about our relationship with APCO and Foodbank and are excited to shape these efforts in the future

Guadalajara Volunteering at the Sn. Juan Grande Shelter

The Kodak Alaris Guadalajara Team volunteered to provide and serve prepared food for 120 homeless at the “Sn. Juan Grande” shelter. Besides helping in this event, the team also provided cleaning supplies which will help for 15 days and groceries, which will help to prepare meals for a full month. 

This shelter is part of the Civil Association “Fundación San Juan De Dios México A.C.” which in Guadalajara helps homeless citizens with mental illness. The shelter is also used as a temporary home for persons who are discharged from the mental hospital as a last stage before their reintegration into society.

United Way 2019 Campaign

Day of Caring is one of the largest volunteer events for Rochester New York. Held at the beginning of May each year, thousands of volunteers come together to provide assistance to our community. Our Kodak Alaris Team of 105 employees joined more than 5,000 volunteers helping nearly 200 local nonprofits with landscaping work, painting, cleaning, and several other community jobs around the area.

We are proud of the teamwork that is evidenced in the results of our employees both inside and outside Kodak Alaris and how our employees demonstrate accountability for our community.

Sunnyside Trust Connection

A group of 16 employees from Kodak Alaris UK volunteered for The Sunnyside Trust, a local charity based in Hemel Hempstead. As well as organising the full day of volunteering, the Social Committee in the UK also organised a bake sale on Wednesday 25th September to raise funds for the charity to buy new benches and some tools that they desperately need.

The Sunnyside Trust works with young people and adults with learning disabilities, offering training and work experience for over 130 vulnerable people in the local community. Our volunteers spent the day raking fields, creating signs, potting plants and tidying general outdoor areas in preparation for the charity’s fundraising event that took place last weekend. 

Red Nose Day 2019

On March 13, Kodak Alaris’ Social Committee in the UK organised its own Red Nose Day full of fundraising activities in support of the British charity, Comic Relief. Together employees raised a total of £310 during the workday! Activities for the day included a spin-a-thon where employees cycled for 100 miles in 6 hours collectively, a bake sale and food related games.

Since its launch in 1988, Red Nose Day has become something of a British institution. It’s the day, every two years, when people across the land can get together and raise money at home, school and work. Comic Relief spends the money raised by Red Nose Day to help people living tough lives across the UK and internationally.
