ISLANDIA, N.Y., Sep. 29 /CSRwire/ - /PRNewswire/ - CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced the kickoff of CA Together in Action, its annual community affairs program promoting volunteerism to its employees across the globe.

For the sixth year in a row, employees will join together worldwide during the month of October to support a wide range of nonprofit projects, from cleaning up parks and beaches and mentoring children to building affordable housing and feeding the hungry.

"Philanthropy and volunteerism have always been a key part of who we are at CA Technologies, and CA Together in Action underscores our commitment to making a difference in the communities where we work and live," said Bill Hughes, Chief Communications Officer. "Participation continues to grow each year and so does the impact we have as our employees roll up their sleeves and give their time. It is gratifying to see their enthusiasm and commitment as we kickoff this year's program worldwide."

Since its inception in 2005, CA Together in Action has provided employees with the opportunity to take time from their business day to volunteer in a variety of activities that benefit their local communities.

Last year, employees set a program record with over 1,600 volunteers participating in more than 90 community projects around the world, representing over 5,800 volunteer hours given to help local organizations. Cumulatively, CA Technologies employees have donated more than 25,000 hours of volunteer service through the program.

"We are thrilled to welcome back another enthusiastic group of CA Technologies employees to assist with the beautification of Western Pennsylvania Conservancy Community Gardens," said Lynn McGuire-Olzak, volunteer coordinator at the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy. "Since 2008, CA Technologies volunteers have supported our mission of protecting and restoring our natural surroundings, and we are excited to be a part of CA Together in Action."

"Since we started our program over 25 years ago, we have experienced many situations that have enlightened our lives and above all, the lives of dozens of families in need," says Laura Barboza, president for Bolha de Sabao Children's School in Sao Paulo, Brazil. "This is a day-to-day challenge, a delicate effort that involves the sincere dedication of many people. But we are not miracle makers and we need support and help from others. We are honored to be apart of CA Together in Action, and the joy they bring to our children is the best reward we can give to all the volunteers."
