We’ve been following our Corporate Relations team on the blog all month long, and our big month of corporate service has come to a close. So what did we get done? Read on to see how the month went.
Our customized volunteer projects are the “crown jewel” of our corporate partnerships, and never does that jewel sparkle brighter than the busy month of June. In the last month alone, we engaged more than 4,000 corporate volunteers on nearly 100 projects. A huge thanks to all our wonderful corporate sponsors for a great month of volunteering – we appreciate your ongoing support and the time you take out of your busy schedules to give back and make a difference.
Some of our highlights from the past month include sweating it out on L’Oreal Gives Back Day with more than 500 volunteers on 15 projects in 99-degree weather; celebrating Citi’s 200th anniversary with revitalization projects on the beach and in schools; teaching Credit Suisse summer interns about teamwork through service; and welcoming new sponsors such as Diesel. Oh, then there was Morgan Stanley’s Global Volunteer Month, for which we planned 19 projects for 1,000 volunteers!
That’s just a small sample of the amazing work that our corporate sponsors accomplish in one short month. It’s a mutually beneficial relationship. There’s no better way to bring your team together than by giving back to the community. Where else can you see your executives trade in their ties for paint-splattered jeans or watch your boss face-off with a third-grader on multiplication tables?
