AEO Celebrates Annual Better World Community Day

Associates continue to show up, give back and make a REAL difference.

On May 19, 2023, more than 725 associates in Pittsburgh, NYC, San Francisco and Hong Kong took time to get out in their local communities and give back!

In Pittsburgh, associates packed more than 103,000 soup kit meals for the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. In New York, teams participated in numerous volunteer projects, from weeding and planting community gardens to unpacking and sorting craft materials for Material for the Arts. San Francisco-based associates joined Surfrider at Ocean Beach to clean up debris and trash, making our coastlines cleaner for everyone. The Hong Kong team volunteered at a community kitchen and with an organization that helps families shop for basic necessities.

We are also very proud to share that our AE and Aerie field associates are taking part in nearly 100 Community Day projects across the U.S. and Canada as part of May Month of Service! And, our Distribution Center teams will get in on the action in June with their own Community Day events.

Giving back is part of our DNA and we believe in helping to build a better world for future generations. Thank you to everyone who rolled up their sleeves and volunteered. You made a HUGE impact and a REAL difference in our communities.
