More than 55 Raleigh and Durham employees of GENBAND spent May 30 volunteering in service projects around the region for nonprofits including Habitat for Humanity, Food Bank of Durham, Survivor Joe and Teaming for Technology.

They were able to help with a deconstruction project, sorting and distributing food, weaving emergency bracelets and other meaningful service projects.

The effort was part of GENBAND’S Global Day of Service. Around the world, more than 1,000 employees of the company, a developer of multimedia and cloud communications solutions. That put the company well on its way to achieving the yearly goal of 10,000 community service hours which will benefit more than 60 charities worldwide in the communities where GENBAND operates.

 “Our Global Day of Service is at the core of GENBAND’s DNA – it helps define our unique culture and allows us to give back to our local communities,” said Robin Wright, executive vice president of human resources and corporate operations for GENBAND. “This year’s Global Day of Service theme is ‘Leaving Our Mark’ and I could not be more proud of the commitment to volunteerism that our employees around the world have exhibited – not only on the Global Day of Service, but throughout the year.”
