MISSISSAUGA–October marks Samsung Global’s Month of Giving, where employees from around the world give back to the communities that they serve. Here in Canada, all employees will come together and volunteer in support of local charities as part of the annual Samsung Day of Giving, on Friday, October 11, 2019.
Employees across Canada will volunteer their time by taking part in a variety of activities, including ecological restoration, tree planting, park beautification, food sorting and packing, working with children and seniors and creating care kits for local hospitals.
“It’s really inspiring to see how enthusiastic and passionate our employees are about giving back. It’s an initiative that stems from our global vision that we thrive when our partners and communities thrive,” said Jeff Jo, President and CEO, Samsung Electronics Canada. “Everyone at Samsung Electronics Canada is incredibly proud and committed to building and supporting programs that make a meaningful impact.”
