Although the pandemic limited in-person opportunities, our people still logged hundreds of hours in 2020, helping out at food banks, donating blood, lecturing in schools, and more.
For 29 years, we’ve worked with high school students through the ACE Mentor Program. In 2020, our employees contributed 2,000 hours – half of them paid – to participation in ACE, mainly in virtual forums.
In March 2020, our Bridges to Prosperity team was preparing to travel to Rwanda and build a pedestrian bridge that would connect an isolated community with schools, markets and healthcare. The project was delayed by the pandemic, but our people were still able to provide remote engineering assistance to the organization.
Community service challenges our people to grow and build relationships in the communities where we live and work. Pandemic-related postponements and limits on in-person volunteering opportunities lowered our 2020 levels of service. We’re looking forward to resuming normal – or higher – levels of involvement in 2021.
