It started as a day of service. Then it turned into a week of giving back. Now, September is Best Buy’s “Month of Service,” during which we boost our volunteer efforts to make a big impact across the country.
Our employees planned 283 events last month, and 2,000 donated their time. They amassed a whopping 5,200 volunteer hours with local nonprofit organizations.
Here are a few great examples of the work our teams did in their communities:
- We volunteered at Liberty House, a housing community for veterans transitioning out of homelessness in Manchester, New Hampshire.
- In Dallas, we partnered with After-School All Stars to mentor kids through a STEM-based project (that’s science, technology, engineering and math).
- We built bikes for kids in Chicago with Together We Rise, a nonprofit dedicated to youth in the foster care system.
- Our employees led hands-on tech activities for youth at TinkerFest in Little Rock, Arkansas.
- In New Orleans, our employees recycled 1,000 gallons of paint for The Green Project.
Giving back to our communities is part of Best Buy’s DNA. We could not be more proud of our employees for their efforts.
