Symantec’s first annual Global Service Week took place in October 2016, with an impressive uptake of employee volunteers and social impact in local communities around the world. #GivingTuesday also provided generous cash donations, so combined, employees contributed more than 6,200 hours of service over the course of one week, and more than $195,000 in donations over the course of a single day! With Symantec double-matching #GivingTuesday donations, the company’s single-day impact climbed toward half a million dollars. Symantec is proud to share a roundup of impact and success below.
