Our steadfast belief in giving back strengthens the communities where we work and live. Our employees generously help non-profit organizations in Atlanta, Georgia, and Charlotte, North Carolina, by donating their time, making financial contributions and participating in community service projects.
Ways We Give Back
Bobby Dodd InstituteMcKenney’s is a staunch supporter of Bobby Dodd Institute, an organization that empowers people with differing abilities by providing supportive programs to those who seek greater independence, confidence, and fulfillment through community inclusion. At our Atlanta headquarters, our onsite deli is managed by Bobby Dodd Institute and provides on-site training for individuals in the program to prepare them for employment. We’re proud to host two permanent Bobby Dodd employees onsite who manage and develop these individuals so that they can become productive, proud and thriving members of our community.
United Way of Greater AtlantaFor over 25 years, McKenney’s has been a proud partner to the United Way of Greater Atlanta—contributing more than $1 million since 2007. We share the United Way’s vision to make metro Atlanta a place where all individuals and families thrive. Through our company-wide volunteer efforts and substantial annual donations, McKenney’s contributes to United Way’s community strengthening efforts. Like the United Way, we place a high value on helping to ensure babies are born healthy, children excel in school, young people avoid risky behaviors, families become self-sufficient, people have access to health care and the homeless find housing.
Habitat for Humanity: Atlanta & Charlotte
In 2012, McKenney’s kicked off our campaign for Habitat for Humanity—donating our time, money and scrap metal to help build houses for those in need. Our support for Habitat for Humanity runs year-round, including hands-on volunteer events and optional financial donations. Starting in 2013, McKenney’s also began donating the scrap metal we produce from our construction projects to Habitat for Humanity’s recycling center. So far, McKenney’s employees have helped build multiple homes across both Atlanta and Charlotte, ensuring that our communities build, thrive and grow.
PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT,
ONE PROJECT AT A TIME
McKenney’s is dedicated to the health of the environment on our own campuses and on the projects we’ve helped build across the Southeast. From responsible building practices to commissioning services to energy-saving systems, we are environmental stewards through and through. To McKenney’s, sustainability means providing a healthy place to live for us, our children and our grandchildren. When it came time to expand our Atlanta campus, we knew that improving the health of our employees was our main priority.
