Thousands Of People To Participate In 19th Annual Prudential Global Volunteer Day

Painting, litter removal and food collection are just a few of the tasks taking place during Prudential Financial’s 19 th Global Volunteer Day on Saturday, October 5. Thousands of volunteers, led by Prudential Financial employees and their families and friends, will participate in Global Volunteer Day by donating their time and talent to community service projects all over the world.

Prudential introduced Global Volunteer Day in 1995 to celebrate and encourage volunteerism among employees. That year, more than 5,000 employees and their families and friends worked on 100 volunteer projects in the United States and Japan. Last year, more than 20,000 people around the world participated in 750 Global Volunteer Day projects in the United States and 11 other countries where Prudential has a business presence.

“Throughout the year, Prudential employees dedicate their time and talents on projects that help improve the communities where they work and live,” said Spring Lacy, vice president of Corporate Engagement at Prudential. “Global Volunteer Day provides employees the opportunity to invest their professional and personal skills to make a positive impact in communities around the globe on the same day.”

Some Global Volunteer Day projects include beautifying local parks, cleaning up school playgrounds, building homes, preparing food for the needy and mentoring children.

In addition, Global Volunteer Day projects that meet certain criteria are eligible to receive $1,000 Challenge Grants for the nonprofit organizations. Since its inception in 1996, the Global Volunteer Day Challenge Grant Program has provided more than $2.7 million to organizations working to strengthen communities.

Global Volunteer Day is part of Prudential’s Community Resources Department, which leads the company’s community involvement and employee volunteerism under the “Prudential CARES” banner.
