GM Plans for Third Annual teamGM Cares Week
Next week marks the third annual teamGM Cares Week, in which General Motors employees volunteer within their communities here in the United States. The official dates of the third annual teamGM Cares Week are September 8 – 12. Some states in which volunteers will be active include Arizona, Georgia, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan (obviously), New York, Ohio, and Texas.
Projects will range from delivering teddy bears and other stuffed animals to hospitalized children, to assisting local food banks, to building homes via Habitat Humanity, to feeding the homeless, and even to cleaning up local parks and beaches. All the causes are worthwhile, and it is great to see so many of GM’s employees getting involved in their communities.
“Along with our commitment to customers, our company is dedicated to giving back and supporting the communities in which we live and work,” said GM CEO, Mary Barra. “Through the philanthropic efforts of the GM Foundation and our employee volunteers, we look for opportunities to make a difference and positively impact those in need.”
This is by no means the only time that GM gets involved in giving back to the community. Just last month, over 3,000 GM employees took part in Life Remodeled, which remodeled a public Detroit high school in a high-crime area, as well as boarded up 254 vacant houses and remodeled 16 others. In fact, the teamGM Cares volunteers are active all year round, whether it’s organizing a food drive, mentoring youth, or assisting in disaster relief.
