Mentoring. Tutoring high school students. Raising funds for local nonprofits. These are just a few of the volunteer activities for which 65 AT&T* employees in Monroe, Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River counties have been honored with the prestigious President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA).
The PVSA gives U.S. Presidential recognition to individuals who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to volunteer service each year. There are three PVSA categories: Gold for 500+ hours of volunteer service; Silver for 250-499 volunteer hours; and Bronze for 100-249 hours of service. Of the 65 AT&T employees recognized locally, 14 achieved the Gold President’s Volunteer Service Award, 19 earned the Silver award, and 32 received the Bronze award.
The PVSA achievement is a way to inspire others to contribute to their communities through volunteer service and to make volunteer service a central part of their lives.
”People matter – to each other, to our communities, and to our company,” said AT&T Florida President Marshall Criser, lll. “This has been one of our core beliefs since AT&T was founded. We’re proud of our employees for investing their time in our communities to make a difference. We believe our workforce, our business and the communities we serve are all stronger because of volunteerism.”
More than 3,300 AT&T employees nationwide received the President’s Volunteer Service Award this year. In 2012, AT&T employee and retiree volunteers companywide donated more than 5.8 million hours of time to community service, valued at more than $127 million.**
