The Giant Company Releases First Community Impact Report

CARLISLE, Pa. – The GIANT Company today introduced its first-ever community impact report, Living Our Purpose in 2021, providing updates on its work to eliminate hunger, change children’s lives, heal the planet, support diversity, equity, and inclusion, and promote health and sustainability. All of The GIANT Company’s corporate social responsibility initiatives are centered around its purpose, Connecting Families for a Better Future.

“Leading with our noble purpose, we are committed to making a difference in the communities we serve, with an overall objective to contribute to healthier people and a healthier planet,” said Nicholas Bertram, president, The GIANT Company. “Our first community impact report highlights how far we’ve come, and how everything we do reinforces meaningful connections for families across our communities, with each action adding up to the better tomorrow we envision.”

A few of the major highlights captured in The GIANT Company’s community impact report include:
