Project Ampersand is an active volunteer initiative for our corporate employees to become more involved with their communities, while utilizing their four hours of volunteer time that’s given per year per employee. While many of them already use this benefit, Project Ampersand will give each region multiple opportunities to give back.
The goal of Project Ampersand is to provide employee volunteer opportunities, give back to our communities and live out our KHS&S values as employee owners.
In recent years, the KHS&S family has completed over 3,000 boxes of food for local families, sponsored over 150 children during the holidays, fed the homeless, went the distance for local hospitals and so much more!
To inspire change: from our people, to our work, to our communities. Dedicated to providing the highest quality of good to our regions delivered with innovation, care and trust.
Project Ampersand partners with organizations throughout the West Coast in setting up volunteer opportunities for our KHS&S employees.
