Established in 2014

The Essendant Associate Care Fund provides short-term emergency financial support to associates who are facing financial hardship as a result of certain unforeseen and unpreventable circumstances and who are unable to afford housing, utilities and other basic living expenses. All US-based associates of Essendant and any of its entities are eligible to apply, beginning on day one of employment. The Essendant Foundation launched the Fund, which can be supported by Councils and individuals who wish to contribute to the fund in support of fellow associates who may experience such a hardship.
