Giving Purpose to Old Uniforms

Averitt is deeply committed to giving back. Several years ago, when looking for a way to ramp up our giving efforts, we partnered with Matthew 25 Ministries – a humanitarian aid and disaster relief organization that rescues and reuses products to help people all around the world.

Every shirt our associates donate to be recycled goes to them – where it’s de-branded and passed on to those who need it most. And while the immediate humanitarian aid is by far the most important aspect of the contribution, the impact is felt in many other ways as well.
