Helping Our Sun Prairie Neighbors In Need

ABR Sun Prairie Food Pantry Donation

Fifty-one families in Sun Prairie, WI were displaced on July 10th after a natural gas leak explosion destroyed their homes. Tragically, a Sun Prairie firefighter died and nearly a dozen people were injured. Several businesses were also destroyed.

The explosion happened just 3.5 miles away from the ABR Employment Services Corporate office. Several ABR employees live in Sun Prairie.

Moments of sorrow (and happiness) have the power to bring people closer together by making them a priority and supporting one another. We wanted to do something to help support our neighbors.

The following week, a food drive was launched at the Corporate office to benefit the Sun Prairie Emergency Food Pantry to help feed people displaced from their homes.

When Jamie Hetzel, our HR Administrative Assistant dropped off the donations, a food pantry volunteer exclaimed, “My goodness, is there a bottom to those bins?”!

As the Greek philosopher, Aristotle said over 2300 years ago, “What is the essence of life? To serve others and to do good.”

At ABR, serving others through our daily interactions with clients and the people we connect to jobs are at the heart of what we do. Community involvement is also a core company value to help enrich the communities where we live and work. We look forward to continuing this way of doing business for years to come.
