When news of the deadly Washington, DC, Metro train crash spread to nearby Catholic University of America (CUA), the entire university was understandably shocked. Less than two miles - and one Red Line stop - away from their crash site, many on campus worried about the safety of friends and loved ones.
Upon hearing the news, the ARAMARK Higher Ed team at CUA decided to do what it could to help amid the concern and chaos. So the food service managers on duty put together several cases of water and drove them to the crash scene. At the crash scene, no one was allowed inside the perimeter set by the police. It took a lot of patience and efforts to convince the authorities to let the managers through. Finally, they were able to enter and deliver the water to the thankful emergency responders. The Higher Ed team offered to help however it could but was not allowed to stay. Before they left, however, an officer on duty said to Katie Nottingham, Assistant Director of Retail: "I am sure someone thanked you already, but in case they didn't due to the chaotic situation here, I would like to thank you on their behalf. We appreciate you guys very much!"
"I am very proud of our managers here at the Catholic University of America," said Endri Baduni, Retail Director for the Catholic University of America. "They have really embraced THRIVE and made it part of their everyday lives. They are an integral part of the university community and proud partners of it. It is truly a privilege for me to be part of this team, and part of a greater company like ARAMARK."
