The Samsung Gives Month of Service campaign has successfully concluded, with the company revealing that more than 1000 hours of service have been donated by Samsung employees to various nonprofit partners in the USA, from the Covenant House of New Jersey to Hackensack Riverkeeper’s environmental program. In case you haven’t heard of this campaign before, it’s because it’s new and it was devised to support communities across the US during the COVID-19 global pandemic.
This year Samsung would’ve normally kicked off the 10th consecutive Gives Day of Service campaign, however, following the COVID-19 global pandemic, the company decided to turn Samsung Gives Day of Service into Samsung Gives Month of Service, effectively encouraging volunteer employees to support communities and causes for an entire month.
Over 145,000 hours of service have been donated by employees since 2014
The campaign was originally created in October 2014 and, since then, Samsung employees in the USA have donated over 145,000 hours of service. This year, throughout the month of October, employees participated in 33 company events and 14 diverse cause areas, all the while assembling 765 relief kits for communities in need.
The month of October is behind us, and so is the Samsung Gives Month of Service campaign, but the company’s efforts to support local communities aren’t stopping here, especially in these uncertain times. Samsung encourages employees to continue helping their local communities as they can. The company itself had donated over $4 million to help organizations in the USA fight against COVID-19.
