Citi’s 12th Annual Global Community Day: Why Citi Volunteers
By Brandee McHale, President of the Citi Foundation and Director of Corporate Citizenship, Citi May 12, 2017 12:30 PM
I volunteer because making someone’s day by giving a bit of yourself never gets old.
This is just one of the many reasons why I’m joining tens of thousands of Citi colleagues, along with family and friends, on Saturday, June 10 for Citi’s 12th annual Global Community Day. For over a decade, we’ve marked this day of service around the world by donating our time, skills and expertise to make a positive impact in the communities where we live and work. Side by side with our community partners, we will once again help tackle a range of pressing challenges in our cities, from feeding the hungry to prepping young people for job interviews to planting trees on a neighborhood block. Last year, I helped one of our Pathways to Progress youth experience the joy (and wobble) of a new bike, which I assembled with my family at Citi Field. This year, I’m looking forward to another chance to help make a difference.
Each Global Community Day, I’m reminded that the spirit of volunteering is alive and well at Citi. When we come together and contribute to communities in need, we bring our Mission and Value Proposition to life. Here are a few reasons that inspire Citi volunteers to give back.
