Hasbro Global Day
puts ‘elves’ to work

Posted:

Hasbro Inc.’s 5,000 employees worldwide became holiday “elves” immersed in community service projects on Dec. 6 that helped bring joy to children in need during the holiday season.

Children in 36 countries participated in the company’s first-ever Global Day of Joy. From its global headquarters in Pawtucket to its offices across Latin America, Europe and Asia Pacific – employees wearing Team Hasbro shirts in 17 different languages fanned out in their respective communities to make a difference through the power of group volunteerism.

“Hasbro’s commitment to helping children where we live and work began with our founders more than 90 years ago and continues with our inaugural Global Day of Joy,” said Brian Goldner, president and CEO of Hasbro Inc. “With the help of our many charitable partners, this initiative provided our talented team of employees with a glimpse into the incredible impact that can be made for children in need across the globe when we work together.”

Armed with toys, games, paintbrushes and more, Team Hasbro employees volunteered with more than 100 charitable organizations worldwide, many of which the company works closely with during the year through its philanthropic programs.

“Despite this being one of the busiest times of the year for so many in our company, the response from our employees has been overwhelmingly positive,” added Karen Davis, Hasbro’s vice president of community relations. “This speaks not only to Hasbro’s general culture of service, but also the passion each of our employees has for creating positive change and bringing joy to children.”

While Hasbro’s Global Day of Joy is an exciting new initiative that concentrates the impact of its employees’ volunteer work, the company’s charitable work extends throughout the year.
