AT&T volunteers participate in United Way Day of Caring in Redmond
As a part of the United Way Day of Caring, approximately 50 AT&T volunteers helped senior citizens at the Friendly Village Mobile Home Park in Redmond today with yard work and window washing. AT&T helped residents of the mobile home park who do not have the funds to hire someone and also do not have the support network to help by sprucing up their outdoor living space.
“The residents at Friendly Village are senior citizens. And although they own their mobile homes, not all of them are able to maintain the lot spaces they rent,” said Derek Harris, an AT&T employee at the company’s West Region Headquarters in Redmond. “Yard work and outdoor maintenance can be a tough job, and we’re here to give them a helping hand.”
Each year, AT&T employees and retirees work to enhance their communities by taking part by volunteering millions of hours, including participation in the United Way of King County Day of Caring. Last year, AT&T employees and retirees in Washington donated more than 33,000 hours of personal time to community outreach activities.
