Citi Celebrates 2018 Global Community Day with More Than 100,000 Citi Volunteers Across 450 Cities Around the World

New York – Today Citi celebrates its annual Global Community Day, as more than 100,000 Citi volunteers in more than 450 cities spanning 90 countries and territories engage in service activities in their local communities. In the days leading up to and including Global Community Day, Citi colleagues, alumni, clients, family and friends volunteer on more than 1,400 service projects that are helping address a range of community needs, from feeding the hungry to revitalizing schools for a better learning environment to preparing young people for jobs.

On Global Community Day, Citi volunteers invest their time and efforts alongside community and nonprofit partners on service opportunities that help create thriving neighborhoods. Some of these volunteer efforts complement the year-round business-led or philanthropic initiatives, including the Citi Foundation's Pathways to Progress, that help make our communities stronger.

"Global Community Day is now a long-running tradition that gives Citi colleagues all around the world an opportunity to further demonstrate our values to the communities we serve," said Citi CEO Michael Corbat. "While our presence as a firm may be global, the real impact on this day is local, and one example of how we are enabling progress in a big way."

Citi is also once again partnering this year with companies, including employee volunteers from Bloomberg and Tata Consultancy Services, on a range of projects taking place around the world, from New York City to Hong Kong to Lagos to Bogotá. Read Full Article
