June 7-16 marked this year’s Team Honda Week of Service, a week when Honda employees come together to make a difference in their communities. Every year, the volunteer event is held around Honda’s Founder’s Day in North America (June 11, 1959). This year marked the 60th anniversary of Founder’s Day.
More than 25,000 volunteers with Honda corporate offices, factories, dealerships, and suppliers came together to offer their time and labor via nearly 600 service activities. These activities included pet adoption events, home repairs for people in need, food and blood drives, park and beach clean-ups, and more. Together, volunteers made an impact in 42 states, plus Mexico and Canada.
“Honda’s Week of Service continues to grow and we are grateful to our associates and to those who join us in giving back to the communities where we work and live during this special week,” remarked Jeffrey Smith, vice president, Honda North America, Inc. “Team Honda has become a powerful force for good, demonstrating that by working together we can truly build nurturing communities.”
Here are a few quick numbers from this year’s Week of Service:
Honda volunteers collectively:
- Donated 2,210 pints of blood.
- Collected and sorted 65 tons of food.
- Raised $100,000 for various nonprofits.
- Served 592,000 meals.
