General Motors Gives Back with teamGM Cares Week
Monday marks the kick-off of teamGM Cares Week, which will see an estimated 4,000 General Motors employees from around the country donate time and energy to over 200 community service projects taking place in major cities including Detroit, New York City, and San Francisco.
“One thing I love about our employees is how they generously volunteer their time and talent to their communities all year long,” said Mark Reuss, executive vice president, Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain “teamGM Cares Week is unique. By devoting an entire week to giving back, we make an enormous impact across the globe.”
Projects taking place this week include everything from pitching in at food banks to beautifying poorer neighborhoods. Among the notable projects pointed out by General Motors is the week-long endeavor of 239 employees to complete 44 different projects for Grace Centers of Hope in Pontiac, Wednesday’s planned trail-improvement project at Walnut Creek Metropolitan Park in Austin, employees of San Francisco-based Maven weeding and landscaping Golden State Park, and GM employees in Detroit helping residents move into a new living facility for Boys Hope Girls Hope.
“Thanks to teamGM Cares Week, Boys Hope Girls Hope will finally be able to physically relocate our female residential program to a more secure site in the city of Detroit,” said Suneil Singh, executive director of Boys Hope Girls Hope. “We’re forever in the debt to those at GM who are willing to take time from their busy day jobs to selflessly volunteer for the betterment of our region.”
