Each year, tens of thousands of Citi volunteers, along with their family and friends, work together with community partners to make a difference in the communities where they live and work on Global Community Day. This year, more than 1,500 volunteer opportunities took place around the globe.
Today’s flagship New York City event featured Citi volunteers packaging a total of 201,888 meals with Feeding Children Everywhere for hungry children and families in the New York City area.
More than 2.6 million people in the State of New York are food insecure, not knowing where their next meal will come from. Citi volunteers are giving hope and healthy meals to these children and families.
“Citi takes their responsibility of contributing to the greater public good very seriously. They demonstrate that by using their resources to impact communities around the globe. Feeding Children Everywhere is proud to partner with Citi in creating a hunger‑free world.” Dave Green, CEO of Feeding Children Everywhere.
