What is GENBAND Day?

GENBAND Day, taking place on June 1st every year, is a Global Day of Service during which GENBAND's global employee base participates in volunteer activities benefiting non-profit agencies and organizations all around the world.

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.  Since the inception of its Global Day of Service, GENBAND employees have dedicated more than 50,000 hours of community service.  During its sixth annual Global Day of Service, employees will participate in more than 75 volunteer activities in more than 25 countries.

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, Special Olympics and the Salvation Army to local organizations such as the Ottawa Food Bank, Galway Hospice, The Animal Sanctuary UK, The Peace Ranch in Toronto, The Society for the Relief of Disabled Children in Hong Kong, La Casa del Arbol de la Vida in Mexico and Lar dos Velhinhos de Campinas in Brazil. 

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 look for charities that were "close to home", so we could give back to the communities that support and sustain us on a daily basis.
