Comerica Cares volunteers spend September volunteering to make a difference. Comerica Bank recently celebrated its eighth annual National Days of Service, during which hundreds of Comerica Cares volunteers logged thousands of hours supporting community service projects throughout the bank’s five primary markets (Texas, Arizona, California, Florida and Michigan).

“By giving back, we are making a positive impact in the communities where we live and work,” said Patricia McCann, vice president and national civic affairs manager, Comerica Bank.

The month-long National Days of Service initiative spotlighted the importance of volunteerism in all of Comerica’s markets. Comerica puts an emphasis on community service during National Days of Service, but September is not the only month in which employees give back. In fact, Comerica Cares volunteers can be found tutoring local students, providing financial education to veterans, singing in the church choir, cleaning up parks, volunteering at fundraising events and more throughout the entire year.

“Through 2014, Comerica colleagues recorded more than 72,000 service hours which equates to more than $1.6 million in volunteer time invested throughout our communities.” said McCann.
