Getting Paid to Serve our Community!
Arc Aspicio employees are known for their passion for homeland security. This desire to have an impact also spurs a strong interest in giving back to the community.
At Arc Aspicio, we meet this desire by giving employees eight hours of additional Paid Time Off each year for independent volunteering activities. We also host company-sponsored community service events with organizations that share our impact-focused service philosophy. Our community service initiatives allow employees to develop new skills while making a difference in their local communities.
Michael Mabeus has recently assumed our Community Involvement Lead role and helps organize team-oriented events with the community. Arc Aspicio’s long-lasting relationship with the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation (SDF) is an example of our whole-company commitment to making an impact. Arc Aspicio sponsors SDF as our top non-profit organization because its mission aligns with our focus on homeland security and disaster preparedness. We sponsored our first search dog team, John, a firefighter, and Lani, a German Shepherd, of Saratoga Springs, New York in 2011. In 2012, we sponsored a second team, Jeff Leon of the Tulsa Fire Department and his canine Justice. We raise funds for the NSF throughout the year through corporate donations and fundraisers, including silent auctions, raffles, and “pay to wear jeans” days.
In 2012, we supported a ‘pro-bone-o’ project that helped the SDF explore new technology to support the dog/handler teams before, during, and after deployment.
Arc Aspicio also sponsors a number of local initiatives:
- Annual Wreath Laying at Arlington Cemetery each year
- Food and goods drives for the DC Central Kitchen
- Girl Scouts Emergency Preparedness Patch Program
Our team shares stories and ideas and promotes non-profit organizations on Initio, our internal knowledge-sharing portal. Our company-wide commitment to community service allows Arc Aspicio to make a difference in our community and strengthens our network at the same time.
