New York – Citi volunteers around the world will demonstrate their commitment to service during the company’s sixth annual “Global Community Day,” on Saturday, October 22.  In 78 countries around the world, an expected 40,000 Citi employee volunteers will participate in nearly 1,100 local service projects. In Jersey, Citi volunteers worked for the Jersey Animal Shelter assisting in a clear up of their nature trail based in St Brelade, clearing the area of rubbish and cutting back the overgrowth to try and encourage wildlife back into the area such as Woodpeckers & Red Squirrels. In addition, using branches and foliage built stacks hopefully to provide shelter for hedgehogs, beetles etc. during the winter months.

Volunteerism is a cornerstone of the Citi employee experience, with many employees regularly engaging in community service year-around. Global Community Day is an opportunity for Citi to showcase and reinforce that shared commitment by inviting employees, families and friends to collaborate as a single global volunteer team.  Working throughout North America, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, Citi volunteers will lend their time and expertise to concentrate on local community needs, including literacy, housing, environmental protection, nutrition, health care and disaster relief.

Our Global community Days are very popular in Jersey, always well attended with so many staff along with their family and friends giving up their own personal time to help out in the community. It’s a great team building event and always enjoyable whatever the weather.
