AXA XL To Take Part In ‘Global Day Of Giving’

May 10, 2019

Staff from AXA XL offices around the world, including Bermuda, will participate in their annual Global Day of Giving on Friday, May 10th.

The Global Day of Giving, which complements the broader AXA Hearts in Action volunteering program, is an AXA XL employee volunteer day dedicated to supporting the communities in which the division has a presence.

Since the inception of the Global Day of Giving in 2006, AXA XL colleagues have performed more than 330,000 hours of community service for hundreds of non-profit organizations worldwide.

AXA XL CEO Greg Hendrick, who for the third consecutive year will be volunteering in his hometown of Wilton, Connecticut for A Better Chance [ABC], a non-profit that provides residential, social and financial support to talented students from disadvantaged inner city areas, said: “This organization is transforming the lives of academically gifted students from disadvantaged neighborhoods who have earned four-year scholarships to attend high school away from home.

“It’s amazing how ABC and other non-profits around the world make such a significant impact in their communities with limited resources. Having seen firsthand the joy that our efforts on Global Day of Giving bring to non-profits and their beneficiaries, I’m looking forward to once again joining my AXA XL colleagues in investing our time and energy in such worthy causes.”

The ABC undertaking will be one of more than 300 diverse projects taking place in approximately 70 locations around the world. Other projects planned for the Global Day of Giving include:

In Bermuda staff will participate in projects from the east to the west end of the island involving a range of activities such as restoring historic sites to organizing a local food bank and preparing meals for the elderly and others in need.
