SUMMIT, NJ – A team of 30 employees from Short Hills-based Dun & Bradstreet recently volunteered at SAGE Eldercare as part of a companywide annual “Do Good Week” program. This is the fourth year Dun & Bradstreet has volunteered with SAGE to help deliver Meals on Wheels and work with older adults in the Spend-A-Day Adult Day Health Center.
“Do Good Week is an organized week of giving back, and the central component of a larger always-on company-wide initiative to “Do Good” and collectively give back to the communities where we live and work,” said Cheryl Bock, a global Do Good Week coordinator. “Last year Dun & Bradstreet saw nearly 2,200 employees from 34 offices worldwide giving over 8,000 hours of volunteer time. Many of our team members have continued to volunteer with SAGE year after year. Our team members enjoy helping seniors and hope to be making a small difference in their lives.”
“We appreciate the volunteer support Dun & Bradstreet has given to SAGE over the years,” said SAGE Executive Director Angela Sullivan. “Their time and generosity helps SAGE and makes a big difference in the lives of the older adults SAGE serves.”
