Employees of Citizens Bank joined together in teams for the afternoon to volunteer at various community projects. “Moving Our Community Ahead Day was created to give employees the opportunity to volunteer together, helping various organizations within the communities we serve and live,” said chairman and CEO James Miller.
“Many of our employees volunteer individually and serve in positions of leadership, but working side by side with colleagues outside of their typical working environments presented a new opportunity for teamwork.”
There were many volunteer opportunities to choose from, including Back to the Wild in Castalia; Edison Woods MetroPark in Berlin Heights; Habitat for Humanity; and Erie County Meals on Wheels program.
One hundred twenty employees volunteered their time at about 20 organizations, donating more than 500 hours and about $15,000 in company resources. The bank plans to make the volunteer day an annual event.
