Fifth-Annual ‘Symetra Week Of Service’ Begins Today, June 24

This week, June 24–28, nearly 500 Symetra employees will roll up their sleeves and tackle volunteer projects throughout the Puget Sound region and across the country for the fifth-annual Symetra Week of Service. Employees will take time from their work day to volunteer on behalf of 38 nonprofit organizations — 23 in the Greater Seattle area. Symetra employee volunteers have contributed nearly 5,000 Week of Service hours since the program’s inception.

“As we kick off our Week of Service, this much-anticipated annual tradition gives us a chance to connect with our colleagues and make a positive impact in the community 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.”

Here are the 2013 Symetra Week of Service nonprofit partners and activities in the Puget Sound area:
