With so many worthy causes to support, our interns didn’t want to limit themselves to just one. Volunteer hours were dedicated in the areas of hunger outreach, domestic causes, animal welfare, education, and community outreach. Through their combined efforts and partnership with local charities, AT&T interns can now say they’ve provided shoes to children in need, fed the hungry, cared for animals and gave back in so many more ways! Check out more snapshots from the day.
