U.S. Bank officially launched the Community Possible Relay, a nationwide initiative aimed to inspire 153,000+ volunteers across the country to take part in rebuilding and revitalizing their communities. The three-month, 12,000 mile relay will include volunteer activities centered around work, home and play, the three focus areas of the bank’s new corporate giving and volunteer program, Community Possible. The relay will visit 38 communities across 25 states.
“We’re challenging all Americans and businesses to join us in this massive collective effort to revitalize the spirit of community in our Race to 153k – representing 1,000 volunteers for every year U.S. Bank has been in business,” said Richard Davis, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of U.S. Bank. “We invite everyone to help build and support vibrant communities by volunteering and giving back.
Dixcy, Jibreel and local U.S. Bank teams will issue volunteer challenges in each community, including participating in workplace education and skills training, teaching financial education, refurbishing homes and cleaning up parks and recreational spaces. People across the country are encouraged to join the movement by volunteering in their community, challenging others to do the same and sharing volunteer stories with the hashtag #CommunityPossible.
The “mobile baton” will make stops in Las Vegas, Phoenix, San Francisco, Portland, St. Louis, Nashville, Chicago, Cincinnati and many others throughout the tour. To track the relay and learn how to get involved, follow U.S. Bank’s social media channels – Facebook, Instagram and Twitter with the hashtag #CommunityPossible.
Congratulations U.S. Bank!
