Whether it’s helping their clients or supporting local nonprofits, Charles Schwab employees have always been committed to service. What began over a decade ago as an annual day of service, Schwab Volunteer Week has evolved into a dedicated week of volunteerism across the firm.
As part of celebrating Schwab’s culture of service, thousands of Schwab employees and executives (aka “Schwabbies”) took part in the company’s 16th annual week-long volunteer event nationwide.
Employees of Charles Schwab showed up ready to work hard as they volunteered at GRACE this week, contributing in groups at Donation Station, The Pantry and GRACEful Buys.
This example of corporate social responsibility shows what a difference companies can make through volunteerism and philanthropy. It provides an opportunity for team building activities with a greater purpose and a true impact in communities where employees live and work.
In honor of Schwab Volunteer Week, the Charles Schwab Foundation offered a $1,000 grant to further support for GRACE missions and goals. Schwab employees were thankful for the opportunity to serve at GRACE during this special week, and are proud to support nonprofits like GRACE in making a meaningful impact in the community.
We cannot express thanks enough to Charles Schwab and their employees for giving back to our community and GRACE. We hope this week’s experiences were as valuable to them as it is to us!
