Citi bank celebrates Global Community Day with hundreds of hard working volunteers
June 22, 2012
Citibank celebrated it's 200th Anniversary by giving employees the opportunity to participate in Global Community Day. Hundreds of bank employees volunteered at a local highschool in the Phillipines wielding cleaning and art supplies to help restore it for the upcoming year.
Global Community Day brings Citibank employees, family and friends together in an opportunity to help local communities in need. This includes donating computers to schools, building houses for families who lost them in natural disasters, planting trees, repainting schools, cleaning beaches and participating in various children's activities.
Over 90 countries all over the world are participating in Global Community Day which is over 100,000 Citibank employees. Managers, sales representatives, and team leaders working side by side.
It's great to see a company this big taking the day off from sitting in front of their computer screens and doing manual labor instead. Not only is this helping the community, it is bringing people together. In this day and age with people constantly on a computer where personal interaction is being erased by email and text messaging, you have to be happy about and event like Global Community Day.
TODAY'S FEEL GOOD NEWS!
This is Scott Budnick's way of giving back to the community
