HLB volunteers 7,393 hours to aid local communities in their COVID-19 recovery

19 October 2020

LONDON – On Friday 9 October, HLB came together to support COVID-19 recovery in local communities for #HLBCommunities Day.

The network’s global Corporate Social Responsibility initiative, #HLBCommunities Day, saw HLB collectively volunteer 7,393 hours through 1,111 participants across 31 community projects.

This year’s #HLBCommunities Day saw diverse initiatives take place across the world, all with the common theme of helping local communities deal with the impact of COVID-19. Firms took part in projects including donating PPE equipment to healthcare charities; collating food and clothes donations for local food banks; donating time and resources to medial centres through to fundraising challenges.
Marco Donzelli, HLB’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “In these unprecedented times, our communities need us now more than ever. Which is why despite the various lockdown measures and safety precautions that needed to be followed, it was wonderful to see so many projects taking place. That is because for HLB, giving back is deeply embedded within our culture, and days like #HLBCommunities Day remind us of that. It’s our chance to share in the impact we create as a global organisation.”
