Hasbro Inc. hosted a national day of service for its employees and their families to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11. In Rhode Island, Team Hasbro volunteers assembled hygiene kits for the homeless-veterans program at Nickerson House.
The day of service was a part of the Hasbro generationOn Club, which was launched in 2010 to encourage the children of Hasbro employees to volunteer in their communities.
“Volunteerism and service are important parts of our culture at Hasbro,” said Hasbro President and CEO Brian Goldner. “We wanted to give our employees and their children the opportunity to come together to honor those who have given so much for our country.”
All of the service activities Hasbro coordinated for the Sept. 11 anniversary benefitted nonprofit organizations that serve those in the U.S. armed forces. Employees and family members in the toy maker’s California, Massachusetts and Washington facilities also took part in the day of service to benefit the Fisher House Foundation, Operation Gratitude and Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors. •
