Astellas Employees Change Tomorrow Through Global Volunteer Initiative
"I really enjoyed interacting with the kids
and seeing the real joy on their faces. One boy said at the end, 'This is the best
time I've ever had at school!'"
— An Astellas employee, on volunteering as part of Changing Tomorrow
Day, an annual global volunteer initiative that empowers Astellas employees to make
a difference in their local communities. Through the "Changing Tomorrow Day" initiative,
Astellas employees throughout North and South America and around the world committed
an entire day to community service during September and October 2010. In the Americas
alone, more than 1,300 employees participated in the event.
