For the many nonprofit organizations serving those in need or addressing critical issues facing communities, volunteers are essential to realizing their extraordinary visions. To lend a hand, Mutual of Omaha has designated September as National Month of Caring.
Each September, the company encourages all employees across the country to spend time volunteering with a nonprofit organization in their community. Employees have the opportunity to take four hours of paid time to volunteer. Since the project began in 2010, nearly 30 percent of Mutual’s associates have participated each year.
National Month of Caring projects range from construction and landscaping at various nonprofit facilities to sorting and organizing donations from the community.
The spirit of volunteerism runs deep at Mutual of Omaha. For the past century, Mutual employees have given their time and talents to many worthwhile causes, establishing long-lasting relationships in the community. Through Mutual of Omaha’s Volunteer Program, that legacy continues today. Each year, hundreds of Mutual employees connect with volunteer opportunities throughout the Omaha/Council Bluffs community, donating thousands of volunteer hours to make a difference.
Each year, Mutual of Omaha employees come together to support the United Way of the Midlands in their quest to provide support and hope to individuals and families in the community. For more than 25 consecutive years, Mutual employees have exceeded the company’s United Way fundraising goal, making Mutual one of the leading contributors in Omaha. And, for the past two years, Mutual of Omaha employees have contributed more than $1 million to help make a difference.
