BuckmanCares Day Celebrates the Spirit of Giving Worldwide
This month, Buckman celebrated its fifth annual BuckmanCares Day in Buckman offices all over the globe. The festivities included special presentations and videos, associate recognition ceremonies, and special service projects at some of the Buckman locations.
In 2014, Buckman associates contributed 8,932 volunteer service hours, and impacted over an estimated 87,000 people worldwide through Buckman-sponsored volunteer projects. BuckmanCares is an umbrella initiative for countless local charitable projects in the areas of education, health and human services, and environmental stewardship. In addition to many of the projects Buckman is doing in its locales all over the world, the company's Storytelling and Blood Donation global initiatives continue to grow.
The Storytelling Project focuses on teaching the 7 Principles of Highly Effective Teamwork to school children through entertaining stories and activities, showing them how following these Principles can help them better relate to others and work as a team.
And as the need for blood donations continues to be a universal issue, Buckman is pleased to report that every Buckman operating company participated in this initiative in 2014.
"I want to congratulate all of our associates on a successful year of giving in 2014 – and we're off to a great start for 2015 as well," said Buckman President and COO Kathy Buckman Gibson. "BuckmanCares is making an amazing impact all over the globe, and it's something we all should be very, very proud of. It's such a great feeling when we can all come together in a spirit of service."
