Every year, Zyxel employees donate their work day to come together and give back to the community!
Employees from Zyxel Communications, a leading provider of secure broadband networking, internet access, and connected home products, shut down their computers, set aside their phones, and left their air-conditioned offices to participate in a community service project during the company’s seventh annual “Day of Giving” on July 18, 2019.
Each year, Zyxel’s employees select a non-profit organization in the Los Angeles area and provide a day of volunteer labor to help improve their facilities or support their missions. Nearly 100 of Zyxel's employees, family members, friends, and business partners volunteered their time and energy to support "Giving Children Hope" in Buena Park, Calif.
The volunteers from Zyxel worked alongside staff members to assemble food packages to support Giving Children Hope’s We’ve Got Your Back Program (WGYB). The WGYB program addresses the food needs of the local school-age children at risk of hunger due to family poverty. The program was started in 2007 to provide additional food to children when they were not in schools, such as weekends, extended holidays, and summer months. During school, these children receive federally-funded free or reduced-price, lunches, but when school is not in session, many students experience limited access to food. This year’s volunteer work will help Giving Children Hope provide 10,000 pounds of critical supplies for children and families in need.
