Company and Employees Join Together Globally to Make a Difference in their Communities

CA, Inc. will host its annual CA Together in Action (CTA) program to support non-profit organizations around the world. CA employee volunteers will donate their time in October to projects such as cleaning up parks, mentoring children, building affordable housing and assisting food banks with feeding the hungry.

CA Together in Action provides CA employees a chance to give back to the communities where they live and work. Last year, employees set a CA record by participating in 90 projects involving 25 offices that spanned six countries. A total of 1,279 CA volunteers were involved in community projects throughout the month of October, representing more than 7,000 volunteer hours given to help local organizations. This year, CA anticipates even higher levels of involvement across the globe.

"Employee volunteerism is strongly encouraged and supported at CA," said Anne Marie Agnelli, vice president for Communications and Community Affairs at CA. "CA Together in Action continues to grow as a result of our employees giving their time and talents. CTA is a collective effort to support community-based organizations and programs across the globe and truly demonstrates that CA is part of one community focused on advancing the common good."

A sampling of organizations with which CA employees will volunteer include:

Australia - The Smith Family and local Blood Drive

Canada - Habitat for Humanity

India - CA HOPE School - fundraising, teacher's workshop and field trip to zoological park

We are fortunate to work with a company such as CA that has not only included us in this project, but also has a senior executive serving on our board and actively supports their Partner schools throughout the year."

"CA continues to support the CA HOPE School in Hyderabad, India during CTA with employees in India coordinating fundraising efforts, conducting a one-day workshop for our CA HOPE school teachers and taking a group of our students to a zoological park," said Dr. Ashok Kumar Prabath, chief program officer, HOPE Foundation. "This support is invaluable to our students and teachers. We would not be able to do the things we do without the support we receive from CA and its employees."
