ABC employees have an internal organization called Anteater Advocates. Our staff volunteers once each month to work CCA the local food pantry. ABC also hosts an annual food drive in the fall. Additionally, each year at our Christmas party, ABC employees bring toys to the party to donate to underprivileged children. We donate services to over 160 local organizations including Child Advocacy Centers, Mission Arlington, The Stewpot, Volunteers of America (part of the Salvation Army), Habitat for Humanity, AIDS Service Homes of Dallas, and many others. These organizations know that they can count on ABC to service those homes at no charge to the families. We also sponsor events such as a fundraising bicycle ride for the Center for Missing and Exploited Children as well as the "Be the Match Run/Walk". Our stated goal for Anteater Advocates is to grow the program to the point that the value of the donation is a full 10% of our annual revenue. At ABC, we feel that giving back to our community is being a good steward of the blessings we have been given and we know that working these events together builds memories and bonds that transcend those of just the normal working relationship.
