AXA XL, the property and casualty and specialty risk division of AXA, has celebrated its 2019 Global Day of Giving, with AXA XL employees around the world volunteering their time and effort to support the communities in which the division has a presence.
This year, the Global Day of Giving, which complements the broader AXA Hearts in Action volunteering program, involved more than 300 diverse projects taking place in approximately 70 locations around the world.
Also taking part in the event was AXA XL CEO Greg Hendrick, who for the third consecutive year volunteered 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.
“It’s amazing how ABC and other non-profits around the world make such a significant impact in their communities with limited resources,” Hendrick said. “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.”
In Melbourne, AXA XL staff spent the day cleaning, repairing, and sorting baby items, which have been donated to benefit families in need.
