Fourth-Annual ‘Symetra Week Of Service’ Begins Today, June 25

This week, June 25-29, more than 450 Symetra employees are rolling up their sleeves and tackling volunteer projects throughout the Puget Sound region and across the country during the fourth-annual Symetra Week of Service. Employees will take time from their work day to volunteer on behalf of 29 nonprofit organizations — 15 in the Greater Seattle area.

“This annual tradition gives us a chance to connect with our community and make a positive impact through hands-on service,” said Tom Marra, Symetra president and CEO, who will be among the employee volunteers. “The Week of Service is a time to break from our work routines and join forces to help our nonprofit partners who do so much good in the community.”
