Bothell employees honored for their commitment to the community

It’s National Volunteer Month and AT&T is celebrating 57 employees from Bothell who have been awarded the President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA).

The PVSA recognizes individuals who demonstrate a commitment to volunteerism throughout the year. Washington AT&T employees are among 4,288 AT&T employees nationwide to receive this honor. They logged a minimum of 100 service hours last year, with many volunteering more than 500 hours.

“These individuals help our communities through selfless acts every day. Whether it’s mentoring students, cleaning up our parks or feeding the hungry, our employees are giving back,” said AT&T Washington President Bob Bass. “In honor of National Volunteer Month, we congratulate these employees and hope their stories inspire others as much as they inspire us.”

Community service has been an integral part of our company culture for more than 100 years and takes many forms. The Bothell employees volunteer with the Girl Scouts, Junior Achievement, care for animals at local shelters and help to organize community events for children.

These moments of giving can add up to millions of service hours. All AT&T employees and retirees volunteered more than 5.4 million hours—just in 2016.

Points of Light administers PVSA, an initiative of the Corporation for National and Community Service. PVSA celebrates the impact we can all make to better our communities and our world. Every American, youth to seniors, is eligible to receive the honor.

AT&T has recognized employees with the PVSA since 2012. AT&T submits a record of employees’ annual volunteer service hours to be verified and considered for the award.
