Abbott Employee Giving Sets New Records for Employee Participation and Total Donations
Date:2/23/2009

ns of people around the world.

Abbott employees pledged donations to more than 4,400 different civic organizations, non-governmental organizations and other non-profit groups. A significant part of this support, including matching grants from the Abbott Fund, goes to long-standing community organizations such as the American Cancer Society, American Diabetes Association, American Heart Association, Arthritis Foundation, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and United Way.

In addition to financial donations, Abbott employees also give back by volunteering in their local communities -- investing their time and expertise to help make a difference in people's lives. One example is the work done by Abbott employees to modernize and double the capacity of the HealthReach free health clinic near the company's headquarters in north suburban Chicago.

"Many people in our community rely on HealthReach for medical care. To help them meet the needs of a growing number of patients, Abbott provided significant funding support and a team of Abbott employee volunteers provided expertise and hands-on assistance to help in completely renovating and expanding the clinic," said Manny Jimenez, an engineer at Abbott. "Donating money, time and expertise to worthwhile organizations like HealthReach is so rewarding -- you can help your neighbors and strengthen your own community."
