ep cares

In 2016, we established the Three 3s, an initiative to give back to our communities by donating profit, project experience and time. We endeavor to leverage our growth as a small business to benefit community and environment, but we also want to empower our employees to be part of deeply meaningful experiences that inspire them, outside of work.

EP Gives Back in 3s

Our THREE 3’s philanthropic pledge can be described as follows: 3% of PROFIT is donated to charity; 3% of PTO TIME is dedicated to volunteering efforts; and 3% of PROJECTS must be pro-bono work for institutions promoting community and sustainability.

Take a look at how we focused our charity work in 2023:

3% of Time

City Meals on Wheels
The EP team helped deliver nutritious meals to elderly New Yorkers in Manhattan. It was a beautiful afternoon and a wonderful way for our team to bond all while helping a good cause. Meal recipients look forward to a knock on their door, knowing a nourishing meal and a warm greeting awaits them.

Harlem Grown
We spent the whole morning assisting with (urban) farming tasks. We got involved with planting and watering new vegetables in garden beds, assisting in the greenhouse by seeding and harvesting crops.

Operation Backpack
At EP, we believe in investing in the future and that starts with each child. Each year through Operation Backpack®, Volunteers of America-Greater New York ensures every student living in a New York City domestic violence or homeless shelter is equipped with a new backpack and grade-specific school supplies before their first day of school.

Animal Haven
Our volunteers spent the morning helping the shelter workers with all the work needed to care for the furry residents. The team assisted with walking dogs, feeding the cats, cleaning kennels and even giving a few puppies a much-needed bath!

Canstruction 2023
EP joined the annual design competition for the 3rd year in a row. Each year teams of engineers, architects and contractors build sculptures made completely out of canned food which then get donated for the upcoming holiday season. EP donated a total of 3,085 cans to City Harvest this year.

The Bowery Mission
EP visited the Bowery Mission for the 6th straight year in a row. This time we assisted with the meal prepping ahead of the lunch serving shift. EP makes this annual commitment right before the holidays to help ensure hungry NYers feel some holiday cheer and receive a warm, good meal.

3% of Fee

We continued work with current and started created new pro bono clients this past year, which include:

  • Wild Bird Fund
  • Fountain House
  • Project Hospitality

As our company continues to grow, so too will our goals. We hope to give back even more in the coming years with new partnerships and opportunities.
