For more than 100 years, AT&T employees have given their time, talent and resources to causes that matter most to them. When it comes to making an impact in our communities, every minute of service counts. Every moment taken to mentor a student, clean up after a natural disaster, or walk a dog at a local shelter adds up to make a lasting impact. Last year, those moments added up to more than 5.4 million hours of volunteer service from our employees!
As part of National Volunteer Month, we’re celebrating the more than 4,200 AT&T employees who have received the President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) for 2016. The PVSA is an initiative of the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and is administered by Points of Light. It recognizes individuals who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to volunteer service by spending more than 100 hours volunteering in the previous year. It’s inspiring and encouraging to think about the lives touched through these acts of kindness.
Throughout April, we are taking the time to say “thank you” to all of our employees — including the more than 41 employees who received the PVSA in New York this year — who are making communities better by volunteering and supporting causes they believe in. We also want to hear your stories of volunteerism!
Congratulations to the 2017 New York PVSA winners:

Hi! I spent 26 years with AT&T. Retired in 2005. During my days with AT&T I was a volunteer soccer, baseball and basketball coach for my sons' teams, my nephew's teams and for lots of other children. I really enjoy interacting with the kids. They keep me young. I am in my 34th consecutive year as a volunteer soccer coach for the Clarkstown Soccer Club, and 5th year as a volunteer coach (my Grandson) for the Orangetown Mighty Midgets soccer organization. I have also been a Make A Wish (Hudson Valley office) granter volunteer for the last 12 years. And I continue to work full time!! BMK
Helping others weather it's through mentoring, volunteering for community out-reach or professional benefits is passion driven for myself. This events allows me to learn, inspire and share wonderful moments in time that I can reflect on later in time.
