Chennai, Tamil Nadu, June 26, 2023 – Today, AbbVie employees in Chennai are participating in its eighth annual Week of Possibilities volunteering program, which unites employees around the world with a single purpose: to give back to local communities through volunteering. From June 26 to 30, thousands of AbbVie employees in more than 50 countries and territories will join forces with trusted nonprofit and community partners across the globe to complete hands-on projects to benefit local communities impacting tens of thousands of people.
“At AbbVie, we are committed to supporting our local community in Chennai through volunteering, and we’re excited to partner with [Akshaya Trust] to make a positive impact for senior citizens,” said Suresh Pattathil, Managing Director & General Manager, Allergan, an AbbVie company. “During our Week of Possibilities, one of our most anticipated annual volunteer initiatives across the company, thousands of AbbVie employees are united around the world by serving their local communities.”
Employees of Allergan an AbbVie Company will engage with senior citizens at Akshaya Trust. The activities aim to instill empathy and awareness amongst the volunteers while adding chunks of laughter and music through this activity in the otherwise routine day of the elderly. Songs, music, and games will be conducted by the volunteers in groups.
In each Week of Possibilities, Chennai, service projects are selected to ensure that AbbVie volunteer efforts align with the greatest needs of each local community. Local projects are designed and implemented in partnership with nonprofit partners close to the communities being served, including Akshaya Trust.
AbbVie’s Week of Possibilities started in 2014 and is now a global tradition for the company. It is funded in part by the AbbVie Foundation and focuses on service projects in the local communities in which AbbVie employees live and work around the world.
