3.14159265358979323846264338327950—Happy Pi Day, Central Ohio!
As we continue our 50 for 50 campaign, which celebrates Acloché’s 50th year in business by giving back to the community with 50 Acts of Gratitude, our team had the idea to use Pi Day as an opportunity to show our appreciation to the first responders in our communities.
Each of our branches went out today and hand delivered a variety of fresh pies from local bakeries to dozens of different public service stations in Central Ohio, including fire departments, police stations, training centers, and more.
Our East branch visited several stations in the Mifflin Township division, which provides fire and emergency medical services to the city of Gahanna and the unincorporated areas of Mifflin Township. Responding to more than 11,800 calls for assistance every year with a response time of less than four minutes, the Division of Fire is one of the busiest fire departments in the region.
Another station that we visited today was the Fairfield County Sheriff Office, where Sheriff’s Deputy Sean Burke thanked us for our generosity, and offered the good spirited and officer-appropriate quip, “Too bad it’s not National Doughnut Day!” (Our Lancaster team assured us that the Sheriff’s Office was more than happy to dig in and celebrate Pi Day, doughnuts notwithstanding.)
We are all extremely grateful and indebted to the service that the first responders in our communities provide, and we’re proud of our Acloché teams for taking the time to show their appreciation.
