Samsung employees in the U.S. today are holding their fourth semiannual Day of Service — a day dedicated to improving lives in their communities — and, for the first time, are including members of their families.
Samsung offices across the country are closed today while employees spend time supporting local and national charities and organizations.
Among the causes being addressed, Samsung team members and their kids will create one-of-a-kind costumes for Only Make Believe, a nonprofit organization of volunteer actors who put on interactive theater programs for children with special needs. Samsung U.S. president/CEO Gregory Lee plans to attend this session.
Also at the company’s headquarters, employees and their family members will make emergency supply kits in support of the Pillow Case Project, created by the American Red Cross to increase awareness about natural disaster preparedness and safety for kids. Customer service senior VP Michael Lawder will head up the executive presence.
Across the country, more than 4,000 Samsung employees are donating approximately 16,000 hours of service to more than 50 organizations. Since Samsung’s first Day of Service in October 2014, employees have donated a total of more than 45,000 hours of service to 65 organizations nationwide.
