66,000 Citi Volunteers Mark Company’s Annual Global Community Day With Service Activities In 95 Countries

Citi employees, alumni, family and friends around the world will reinforce the company’s commitment to supporting and improving communities by turning out in force today during Citi’s eighth annual Global Community Day. In the days leading up to and including Global Community Day, more than 66,000 Citi volunteers will gather in 95 countries around the world to participate in more than 1,200 service projects to benefit local communities.

Volunteerism is a central part of the Citi employee experience, with Citi volunteers regularly engaging in community service year-round. Global Community Day spotlights and reinforces a shared commitment among Citi employees, clients, alumni, family and friends around the world to collaborate and dedicate their time and expertise to local community needs, including literacy and education, housing, environmental stewardship, health and human services, and disaster relief.

Last year’s Global Community Day on June 16, 2012, was a cornerstone of Citi’s year-long 200th anniversary celebration, and resulted in an extraordinary demonstration of the company’s commitment to service. Continuing that enthusiasm, this year Citi volunteers are contributing more than 325,000 hours of service in 473 cities. As part of Global Community Day, among other efforts, Citi volunteers will serve more than 14,200 meals to the hungry, build 240 houses, and revitalize more than 200 parks, beaches and green spaces.

"Since our first Global Community Day in 2006, this company-wide initiative has quickly become a Citi tradition," said Citi CEO Michael Corbat. "Last year’s Global Community Day saw the largest participation to date, and we are excited to carry that momentum into this year as we work side-by-side with local organizations to strengthen the communities where we live and work.”

In addition to rolling up their sleeves, Citi volunteers and community partners around the world will be communicating about their Global Community Day experiences on Twitter using #CitiVolunteers.

Working throughout North America, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, Citi volunteers will lead hundreds of community projects. Notable activities across Citi’s regions include:
