We have also listed a few other organizations that Giant has proudly partnered with.New Hampshire Cultural Diversity Awareness Council
Founded in 2000, the NHCDAC’s mission is to increase awareness of the need for communication, understanding and respect among people of diverse backgrounds. Through community events, educational programs and alliances with corporations, educational institutions, government agencies and non-profit organizations, NHCDAC addresses the important issues of multiculturalism facing our nation today.
Since 2001, Giant has worked closely with the council. A major part of the program offerings by the council is the “Keeping The Dream Alive” cultural diversity workshop at Waterville Valley Conference Center. This one of a kind, daylong program combines cultural diversity training and skiing for 320 middle school students. The training that is delivered at the workshop was developed by associates in Giant’s Training & Development and Diversity departments. Giant associates also volunteer each year to facilitate the training.

Bottom Line is a college counseling service for disadvantaged youth. The program assists Boston Public School students through the college access process and stays with the student until they attain their college degree. The mission of the program is to ensure that more students of color coming out of Boston Public schools are attaining college degrees.
Giant has been a strong supporter of the program since its inception in 1997. Each year 10 deserving Bottom Line students receive Giant scholarships. Giant has also taken a number of Interns each summer from Bottom Line. These internships have been instrumental in recruiting Bottom Line students to join Giant as full time associates upon graduation.
