The holidays are in full swing, and one date marks the start of a particularly important season. Giving Tuesday, November 28th, brings us into the season of giving, whether it’s your time, a donation, a gift or your voice. Our Samsung employees have channeled their holiday cheer towards the community around us right here in Silicon Valley! We’re proud to highlight the charities our employees are donating to below and to celebrate everyone who is supporting a cause that is special to them this season.
Samsung employees’ 2016 One Warm Coat drive.
One Warm Coat:
In its annual report, One Warm Coat shared that nearly 50 million Americans are living in poverty and struggling to provide a warm coat for themselves and their families. Our Samsung employees are supporting this organization’s mission to provide a free, warm coat to any person in need through their donation of coats, sweaters, jackets, sweatshirts and scarves this season. One Warm Coat donations provide individuals with shelter, security, confidence and safety, and last year alone the organization was able to deliver coats to 599,487 children, women, and men. Learn more about One Warm Coat and ways to donate here.
Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV):
Our employees are also looking out for our four-legged friends this holiday season by donating blankets, towels and pet bedding to the HSSV, an independent, privately funded 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Connecting people and pets for over 85 years right here in Silicon Valley, HSSV is dedicated to saving and enhancing the lives of both the four-legged and the two-legged and reported helping 4,700 animals find loving homes just last year. Want to learn more or donate? You can here.
Everyone is welcome to participate in the season of charity. A great way to start is by researching organizations in your local community.
