Team Activities for Good with AIG

Team Activities

Team activities for good are so important when creating a positive work environment. Our long-time friend and supporter AIG understands the value of empowering their team through charitable activities. Recently our AIG friends invited us out for two days of team building activities in New York City.

Who is AIG?

With a long history of community investment, AIG continues to place value in it’s CSR efforts. Their website cites:

“AIG is committed to giving back to the communities we serve through programs, partnerships, and philanthropy that leverage the skills, experience, knowledge, and enthusiasm of our employees. We honor our history of giving and continue to put purpose into action by volunteering to help others, serving on Employee Resource Groups, donating funds to support important causes and by otherwise working toward the greater good.”

-Laura Gallagher, Global Head of Corporate Citizenship

Howdy from the Big Apple

AIG invited us to for two days of team activities at the New York Marriott in Downtown. For the opening night of onboarding services, the team assembled 230 Superhero Boxes. Because of a time crunch, we were passing out materials as the Marriott staff cleaned tables. Our Executive Director, Gianna came out for the event to speak about our mission and the impact these projects have on kids in foster care. Everyone enjoyed the evening, especially because of the super cause!
Edwin Gould & Rising Ground for Children and Families in Brooklyn received the Superhero Boxes for their kids.

Part Deus

The second night focused on the intern service project. AIG hosts dozens of interns for the summer and the HR department sponsored this event for all the interns in the firm. Together with the help of the 6o interns we decorated and assembled 120 Sweet Cases. These Sweet Cases help replace trash bags and benefit children from HeartShare St. Vincent’s Services in Brooklyn.

Thank You, AIG

We appreciate all of the support from the AIG team and can’t wait till our next event together. Want to learn how you can help kids in foster care? Check out all the ways you can get involved.
