AT&T Interns Give Back in National Day of Impact
Future AT&T leaders are already making an impact in a big way. How big? Recently, over 400 AT&T interns logged 1300 volunteer hours taking part in the National Day of Impact. Our ambitious and big-hearted volunteers were able to accomplish quite a lot with those 1300 hours. Take a look at their impact by the numbers:
Volunteer count: 425 (35% increase from 2014!)
Volunteer cities: 8
Total volunteer projects: 24
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 built a house, fed the hungry, cared for zoo animals and gave back in so many more ways! Check out more snapshots from the day.
