SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–More than 7,500 Charles Schwab employees will honor Schwab’s
long-standing culture of investing in its communities through
philanthropy and volunteer service by participating in Schwab Volunteer
Week, which kicks off today with a week of volunteer projects that help
local and national nonprofit organizations. This year’s event marks
another record-breaking year for employee participation.
“Schwab Volunteer Week is inspiring and underscores the importance of
service at Schwab—not only for our clients but also for our
communities,” said Carrie Schwab-Pomerantz, president of Charles Schwab
Foundation. “Schwab Volunteer Week is my favorite week of the year. I
love to see our employees come together to apply their time, talents and
resources to support the communities where we live and work.”
Now in its 16th year, Schwab Volunteer Week began as a single
day of service on May 13, 2004 with just over 1,000 employee volunteers
serving 37 nonprofits in seven cities across the country. This year,
Schwab Volunteer Week engages more than 7,500 employees in 166 cities
serving 320 nonprofits on more than 600 volunteer projects. Schwab
employees will provide 30,000+ volunteer hours this year, compared to
4,400 volunteer hours in 2004.
Many Schwab Volunteer Week projects are designed to help nonprofits
increase the financial empowerment and well-being of the people they
serve, and Schwab employees also have the opportunity to give back to
their communities in a variety of ways, including light construction,
gardening, cleaning, and meal service. Benefiting organizations include:
Youth development organizations such as Boys & Girls Club of America,
Junior Achievement and Big Brothers Big Sisters;
