Throughout October, Xylem invited employees and partners to participate in the fifth annual Global Month of Service. With the challenges posed by COVID-19, we focused more on individual and small group opportunities rather than large group outings. We are incredibly proud of the ways teams, partners and individuals came together to exemplify how we make a difference in the communities where we live and work.
During the campaign, more than 2,200 individuals from around the world generously donated more than 8,800 hours of volunteer service!
From the U.S. to the Middle East, employees were creative and innovative with their service:
This year we also incorporated our efforts to raise awareness for disaster preparedness into the Month of Service. For every person who built their own disaster preparedness kit or completed the virtual experience, Xylem donated a hygiene kit to our global partner Mercy Corps. Due to great participation across September and October, 882 hygiene kits are able to be donated in support of those facing the aftermath of natural disasters.
Xylem colleagues are working every day with our customers, NGO partners and other stakeholders to solve water for communities around the globe. This mission unites and inspires us, and we are grateful for the opportunities to do our part in addressing one of the greatest challenges of our time.
