To whom much is given, much is required.
APD believes in giving back to the communities we serve, an imperative that is driven by our CEO, Mr. C. Ray Kennedy. Mr. Kennedy and his wife created the C. Ray and Cynthia M. Kennedy Foundation to serve free and healthy meals to low income and underprivileged children in the Charlotte area during the summer months. During the past three summers, the Kennedy Foundation has served over 350,000 free breakfast and lunch meals.
APD regularly participates in charitable events throughout the year to benefit the communities we serve. We are dedicated to helping those in need, whether through collecting clothes for the needy or addressing hunger and nutrition through improved access to healthy food. APD supports a variety of initiatives to improve educational opportunities for youth in our community, which results in improved employment opportunities. APD believes that better jobs create better lives.
