Aramark, global provider of award winning services in food, facilities management and property,   has announced its nominated charities in Ireland for 2016.


  • Aware
  • Mater Foundation
  • Cork Samaritans
  • Galway Autism Partnership


Since the establishment of the Aramark Charitable Fund in Ireland in 2008, the fund has raised over €380,000 for its various nominated charities selected each year.


Throughout the year, Aramark employees in Ireland will host and support a number of fundraising initiatives with proceeds raised going towards the three selected charities.


Julie Breslin of Galway Autism Partnership, “Galway Autism Partnership is helping to ‘Bridge the GAP’ in our local communities. The Charity has grown and evolved considerably since 2011, and has become a huge source of information and support to many individuals and families who are living with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) and/or other additional needs. Without Government funding, GAP relies heavily on support from fundraisers and we are delighted to have Aramark’s continued support and commitment to support us for 2016.”


Michelle O’Shea Director of Cork Samaritans “The Cork branch of the Samaritans is the second largest branch in Ireland with 200 volunteers and operating 24/7. In 2015, the Cork branch received over 60,000 calls with over 1,100 of these drop in callers to the centre. Thanks to the generosity of supporters such as Aramark we can continue to assist those in need of a support.”


Mary Moorhead CEO of the Mater Foundation, “We are delighted to have the support of Aramark and their staff to raise much needed funds for the continued provision of excellent patient care and improvement to cancer services at the Mater Hospital.”


Teresa Sloan, Director of Fundraising at AWARE said, “AWARE is the only mental health charity in Northern Ireland working exclusively for those with depression and bipolar disorder. Being selected by Aramark and representing their Northern Ireland business region is something we are very proud of and appreciate the time employees took to nominate us. Funds raised will go directly towards our services and programmes offered to people with the illness of depression. The money will also help provide education programmes on mental health into schools across Northern Ireland.”


Donal O’Brien, Region President, Aramark Northern Europe said, “Our ongoing commitment to charities through our employee nomination process is one of the many ways our company supports community involvement, ensuring that we continue to enrich and nourish lives while supporting the communities that we serve.”
