A WEEK OF WILL

Under Armour Teammates Join Together Across the Country for Their Communities

There is no greater team than your community. Neighbors, friends and family sharing a sense of belonging and responsibility.

This year, as part of Under Armour’s fourth annual Week of Will, the brand partnered with nonprofits from around the country to give back to their communities.

In Baltimore, the HQ team came together throughout the week of September 9-13 to give back to their community in celebration of National Day of Service, which fell mid-week. Employees partnered with national nonprofit Heart of America and Baltimore City Public Schools to transform educational and community gathering spaces at Sandtown-Winchester Achievement Academy.

"At Under Armour, we stress the importance of building a deep and sustained relationship with our hometown communities through service. We recognize that everyone has busy schedules, but devoting your time and passion leaves a meaningful impact not only for our community but for our employees as well."
- Stacey Ullrich, Head of Global Social Responsibility at Under Armour

The new Baltimore-based pre-k to eighth grade school opened this year to serve the Sandtown-Winchester community and is housed in the William Pinderhughes school building.

Over the course of the week, alongside the Baltimore community, 700+ employees renovated the exterior entrance, main office, library and makerspace, gym, cafeteria, classrooms and hallways, staff lounge, and food pantry for students, teachers and the surrounding community.  

Design services, painting, flooring, carpentry and electrical resources were provided through partnerships with companies including Freeman, PAINTech, Inc., Turner Construction, Kolb Electric, United Rentals, KIND, Impact Fitness, Baltimore Tree Trust, Baltimore Community Tool Bank and Seawall Development.

In other parts of the country, UA employees partnered with additional nonprofits like local soup kitchens and Habitat for Humanity to help out their communities.
