Press Release, November 15, 2006
Primerica and other Atlanta-area Citigroup subsidiaries will be doing their share to contribute locally as part of Citigroup’s global effort. Primerica has chosen to volunteer to help the Foster Children’s Foundation, a local non-profit dedicated to serving the needs of foster children. Primerica employees will be hosting a special “Pasta-bilities” dinner for an anticipated 100 foster children and 70 foster parents.
This local employee volunteer project is part of Citigroup’s first “Global Community Day,” a worldwide effort involving more than 25,000 volunteers, along with family and friends, participating in over 700 projects in 400 cities across 100 countries. Recognizing that many Citigroup employees volunteer year-round in their communities, Global Community Day celebrates Citigroup’s volunteer spirit on one day around the globe. Local volunteer teams will be working on a variety of projects addressing specific community needs, including literacy, housing, environmental protection, nutrition, and health care.
“With more than 300,000 employees working in 100 countries, Citigroup is committed to mobilizing the enthusiasm and talents of our employees for community service,” said Charles Prince, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Citigroup. “Citigroup’s Global Community Day is a company-wide effort, with thousands of volunteers working in Asia Pacific, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and North America. This initiative certainly highlights the power and diversity of Citigroup’s employees and our company’s unwavering commitment to giving back to the communities in which we live and work,” said Prince.
