GE Volunteers is a company-wide platform through which employees can share their time, talent and skills to build stronger communities where they live and work.  As an organization committed to volunteerism, GE was one of the founding organizations that initiated the island-wide Corporate Community Day (CCD) with Amcham 13 years ago.  CCD was designed to encourage volunteerism amongst American companies and their employees and to give back to the community around us. GE remains fully committed to many more CCDs in the future.”
