GKgives introduces a new scholarship program to benefit the dependent children of thecompany’s employees as they pursue college degrees. In its initial year, the GKscholars program will award 10 scholarships to students attending college in the 2016-2017 school year. The GKscholars program will be funded by donations from G&K’s employees through the company’s GKgives charitable giving program, along with contributions from the G&K Services Foundation.
“I’m excited to introduce GKscholars, a great new program to help our employees and their families,” said Douglas A. Milroy, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “It’s especially gratifying that this program will be largely funded through the generosity of G&K’s employees, coming together to help the children of our co-workers advance their education.”
