Erika Aaron, community relations director at Waste Management, said the company realized both events were serving the same function and coming together could enhance their efforts.
"We had services they weren't offering and they had services we weren't offering," she said. "We were able to put that all together under one roof." Along with a traditional Thanksgiving meal, the event will also feature an array of free services, including medical screenings, haircuts and long-distance phone calls. Volunteers will also be distributing free clothing, blankets and other household items. Santa Claus will also be making an appearance, taking photos with families and children in the event's Kid Zone, Aaron said. Waste not, want not Officials are also trying to make the feast more "green" or environmentally friendly with an increased amount of recycling. Aaron said leftover food will be collected and turned into compost that will be used as a soil additive. Aaron said she hopes the event is able to bring a smile to many faces and let those in need know help is available. "Not just on Thanksgiving," she said. "But all throughout the year."

That's because it was Erika Aaron's job to talk about what happens after legislatures win the fight to establish vouchers or tax credit scholarships, which Christie said had "the chance to get the most change, the most quickly.
No doubt, Aaron shared the same sense of urgency with others at the American Federation for Children's annual summit, but she also reminded the participants that they'll initiate change quickly if they design their choice policies smartly. Aaron is the community relations director for Waste Management, Inc., which has contributed $16 million to the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship program alone as well as millions to similar programs in other states in exchange for a tax credit. But Aaron said the company is particular about where it redirects its tax liability, and a smart private school choice policy to Waste Management may not be the most disruptive. Indeed, Aaron said she convinced Waste Management executives that this was a cause worth supporting only after determining that, in addition to the tax credit, four standards would be met: That the scholarship be means-tested: While tax credit scholarship programs vary in their approach to means-testing and in their definition of "low income," Aaron said support from Waste Management depends on whether the scholarship is first helping those who are the least able to afford a private school on their own. That the program is transparent: The level of accountability and transparency in most tax credit scholarship plans varies as widely as the approach to means-testing, but Aaron said that scholarship programs need to show that they are being good financial stewards of the public trust and that they are meeting the academic needs of their students. Aaron said an effective program in no way restricts a student to move from one school to another with the scholarship.
