Keep America Beautiful and Keep Massachusetts Beautiful Work with Family-Owned U.S. Distillery to Make Massachusetts Communities Clean, Green, and Beautiful
STAMFORD, Conn., May 15, 2019 /3BL Media/– Sazerac Company, one of the largest family-owned distilleries in the United States, is partnering with national nonprofit Keep America Beautiful® and its Keep Massachusetts Beautiful state affiliate on a series of cleanup events in May and June.
Today’s leading corporate volunteer programs have one thing in common—they’re flexible and inclusive. Why? The benefits go deeper than you might think. When people can volunteer in a way that resonates with (and works for!) them, they’re more likely to participate. And that first interaction opens the opportunity to engage them in doing good year-round.

Starbucks and VolunteerMatch are empowering volunteers to follow in the footsteps of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and find ways to do good this MLK Day of Service.
Recognized as one of history’s most influential leaders, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s work continues to inspire communities to come together and elevate doing good through service.
In 1994, Congress designated the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday as a national day of service. Every third Monday in January, good people across the country come together to lean into MLK’s legacy and observe the MLK Day of Service as a “day on,” rather than not a “day off.”
