BERGENFIELD, N.J. – Habitat for Humanity of Bergen County welcomed volunteers from Samsung Electronics America to its Bergenfield construction work site as part of Samsung’s Corporate Day of Service Friday, May 13.
It was Samsung’s fourth semiannual Day of Service, when Samsung offices across the country close and approximately 4,000 employees spend time supporting more than 50 charities and nonprofits nationwide.
A team of 12 volunteers worked on the Bergenfield home, framing and raising walls on the single-family, three-bedroom home.
“Giving back is a huge part of our mission at Samsung. We believe in being an active corporate citizen, working to support the organizations that are truly making a difference in the communities where we work and live,” said Ann Woo, senior director of corporate citizenship at Samsung Electronics America. “Our employees power our ability to give back, and so we were especially grateful that Habitat for Humanity of Bergen County welcomed us back on Day of Service.“
"As an innovative leader in both technology and corporate citizenship, Samsung has redefined what it means to give back by embedding its community values into its corporate culture and constantly introducing new corporate responsibility programs that bring together technology, philanthropy, environmental sustainability, youth empowerment, and community,” said Angela King, Habitat Bergen’s director of volunteers.
