Pathward employees gave back through volunteer events across the country during the first full week of November.
Pathward’s purpose of financial inclusion ignites a culture of giving that goes beyond our products and services. It’s part of our DNA and it’s part of our social commitment to the communities where we live, work and play.
Thanks to the team leading Pathward’s Community Impact Program and the SCALE (Serving Communities and Linking Employees) Employee Resource Group, Pathward held its second Volunteer Week of 2023, Nov. 6 – 9. The week-long event took place in conjunction with the company’s annual United Way Campaign, featuring in-person and virtual volunteer opportunities.
Throughout the week, more than 250 Pathward employees volunteered at events with 25 beneficiary organizations in 16 cities across the U.S.
“Pathward’s Community Impact Program was built on the concept of acting locally on a companywide commitment to support the communities in which we do business. I continue to be impressed by our employees’ penchant for volunteerism, and I’m proud of the ways Pathward helps amplify their efforts through our Community Impact Program,” said Catherine McGlown, SVP, ESG, Communications and Brand.
“It is always such a special opportunity to volunteer alongside my colleagues, especially knowing that our impact goes far beyond my home here in Nashville (Tennessee),” said Anna Morgan Couch, who serves as Chair of SCALE. “This volunteer week was incredibly impactful due to our reach to many cities across the country, not limited to just the areas where we have office locations. I am so proud of the way our employees have come together to serve our communities!”
Pathward launched its annual United Way Campaign during the same week. The campaign provides a way for employees to donate their time and/or financial resources to the United Way. Employees may designate contributions through payroll deduction or a one-time donation, and they can direct their dollars to go to their local United Way organization if they wish. During the campaign, Pathward matched all financial donations, and doubled its match during the week of Nov. 6-10.
The United Way Campaign and Volunteer Week events are just some of the ways Pathward empowers employees to drive social commitment in cities across the country.
