Employees at tax giant KPMG and telecommunications leader AT&T commemorated the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks by volunteering at more than 200 nonprofits across the country.
AT&T’s volunteer initiative, called AT&T Cares, supported the efforts of more than 140,000 AT&T employees and retirees who honored the day by participating in the nationwide National Day of Service and Remembrance.
Across the U.S., AT&T employees volunteered with a Pioneers Dish It Up food drive that kicked off on 9/11, a recycling drive in 100 locations to benefit Cell Phones for Soldiers and a 4,000-employee recruitment drive for Job Shadow, which helps at-risk students make the connection between education and workforce success.
KPMG granted its U.S. employees “volunteer time off” to participate in service projects Sept. 6-11, in addition to the 12 hours of volunteer time KPMG grants each worker every year.
