CARROLLTON, Texas, July 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In April of 2016, Blue Jay announced a new social initiative called Give a Day, the Blue Jay Way. The initiative calls for each employee to donate at least 8 hours a month to a social cause or community service of their choosing. This initiative was embraced by Blue Jay employees, and they have made the most of their opportunities to make impactful, important contributions to communities across the U.S.
Each employee has taken a different approach to volunteering. Some employees have banded together as a group to serve meals, provide support for veterans, (re)build houses, join in fundraisers for causes, donate blood, or rebuild shelters. Other employees have partnered up with local non-profits, libraries, churches, or animal shelters by volunteering their time and services to many different projects.
A mere three months later, the Give a Day campaign is contributing over 1,500 hours a month of community service to local Blue Jay communities. The number of hours volunteered is growing each month as Blue Jay team members are dedicated to serving more than 8 hours a month, whenever their schedules allow.
