More than 6000 hours of volunteer service for GENBAND Day!
In its continuing commitment to fostering a spirit of year-round volunteerism, GENBAND's 2014 objective is to volunteer more than 10,000 hours during the year.

What is GENBAND Day?

GENBAND Day, which is June 1st of each year, is a Global Day of Service during which GENBAND's global employee base will participate in volunteer activities benefiting non-profit agencies and organizations all around the world. GENBAND team members around the world will be dedicating volunteer hours during our Global Day of Service. Since June 1st 2014 is a Sunday, GENBAND employees will be conducting volunteer activities on May 30th.

How did GENBAND Day come about?

On June 1, 2010, GENBAND executives made June 1st a global company holiday. GENBAND employees subsequently recommended transforming the holiday into a global day of community service. Because June 1st is on a weekend day this year, GENBAND employees will conduct their volunteer activities on May 30th. Since the inception of its Global Day of Service, GENBAND employees have dedicated more than 25,000 hours to community service.

What organizations are GENBAND employees assisting?

GENBAND employees around the world assist and serve organizations that range from well-known charities like Habitat for Humanity, Ronald McDonald House, and the Humane Society to local organizations such as the Ottawa Food Bank and Galway Hospice.

Why did GENBAND employees select these organizations?

At GENBAND we want to foster a year-round spirit of volunteerism, consistently contributing to our local communities. Our employees selected various charities because many of them have been involved with several of these organizations in the past, either as recipients of services or as volunteers. We also looked for charities that were "close to home", so we could give back to the communities that support and sustain us on a daily basis.
