Annual Event Contributes Nearly Four Million Hours of Service Since Launch

Nassau, The Bahamas – Today Citi celebrates its annual Global Community Day, as more than 150 Citi volunteers in Nassau, The Bahamas engage in service activities in their local communities. In the days leading up to and including Global Community Day, tens of thousands of Citi colleagues, alumni, clients, family and friends in more than 450 cities across 90 countries and territories volunteer on 1,400 service projects that are helping address a range of community needs, from feeding the hungry to revitalizing schools for a better learning environment to preparing young people for jobs. 

On Global Community Day, Citi volunteers invest their time and efforts alongside community and nonprofit partners on service opportunities that help create thriving neighborhoods. Some of these volunteer efforts complement the year-round philanthropic and business-led initiatives, including the Citi Foundation’s Pathways to Progress, that help make our communities stronger.

This year, Citi Bahamas together with our client partner, Commonwealth Brewery Ltd., will support The Persis Rodgers Home for The Aged.  We will paint and beautify the premises, stock the pantry, create a vegetable patch, and most importantly, provide the senior residents with a day of fellowship and fun-filled activities.

“Global Community Day is now a long-running tradition that gives Citi colleagues all around the world an opportunity to further demonstrate our values to the communities we serve,” said Citi CEO Michael Corbat. "While our presence as a firm may be global, the real impact on this day is local, and one example of how we are enabling progress in a big way.”

Margaret Butler, Citi Country Officer for The Bahamas said “Citi Bahamas is not just bricks and mortar but a bank made up of real people who welcome the opportunity to come together each year to make an impact on a local community.  This is our thirteenth consecutive year and I am so proud that our entire staff remains fully committed to making this day a success!”

Since the inaugural Global Community Day in 2006, Citi volunteers have contributed nearly four million hours of service to Global Community Day projects in hundreds of cities.
