Local Prudential employees and their families spent September 29 volunteering with the Phoenixville Marian Youth Club as part of the company’s 18th annual Global Volunteer Day. Prudential volunteers cleaned up field areas and a clubhouse that stores equipment for the Youth Club, which provides recreational and instructional sports programs for boys and girls in the Phoenixville area.
The project at the Youth Club was one of hundreds of local community service projects in the U.S. and abroad as part of Prudential’s 18th annual Global Volunteer Day. In all, more than 20,000 individuals donated their time and talent to Global Volunteer Day projects.
When Prudential introduced Global Volunteer Day in 1995 to celebrate and encourage volunteerism, more than 5,000 employees and their families and friends worked on 100 volunteer projects in the United States and Japan. Last year, more than 28,000 people around the world participated in 750 Global Volunteer Day projects in the United States and 10 other countries.
