Samsung Employees Nationwide Swap the Office for Day of Service
Electronics America, Inc. today will host its bi-annual, companywide
Day of Service throughout their national locations in New Jersey, New
York, Texas, California and Washington, D.C. and regional offices. The
event, which occurs each spring and fall, is part of the company's
overarching Samsung (News - Alert) Gives initiative, a platform that creates service
opportunities for Samsung employees to connect to meaningful causes
within their own communities.
"Samsung believes in being an active corporate citizen and is committed
to giving back to the communities where our employees live and work,"
said Gregory Lee, President and CEO, Samsung North America. "The Samsung
Day of Service allows all employees to serve their communities, work in
teams and offer help to causes in need-whether it be feeding the
homeless, rebuilding communities or providing workplace training. We
strive to encourage employees to be more proactive in their volunteering
and through Day of Service grow a better understanding of causes they
are passionate about within their communities."
Since its inception in 2014, the Day
of Service has provided over 80,000 hours of service to more thn 60
local charities nationwide. This year alone, nearly 4,000 Samsung
employees will join together in donating 16,000 hours of service to more
than 50 non-profit organizations within their communities, including:
Local Boys & Girls Club of America
GrowNYC in New York
After-School All-Stars in New Jersey
Special Olympics Texas
Samsung Gives was built on the company's dedication to help communities
and focuses on programs that enhance health, education and
sustainability opportunities. Many of the organizations Samsung partners
with for Day of Service share this vision and provide an outlet for
Samsung employees to impact change within their communities.
