NEW YORK, Oct. 01 /CSRwire/ - Today, CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) announced the 10th anniversary of CA Together in Action, the company’s worldwide volunteer month. Throughout October, employees take time out of their workday to participate in activities that include mentoring children, environmental cleanups, building affordable housing, assisting food banks, and supporting science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) educational programs.

“Volunteerism is an important part of our company’s culture,” said Erica Christensen, Vice President, Corporate Social Responsibility, CA Technologies. “Our employees have a long history of giving their time and talents to communities around the globe, and we are excited to celebrate a decade of service through CA Together in Action.”

Since the program’s inception in 2005, nearly 50,000 employee volunteer hours have been given through CA Together in Action, and more than 1,000 projects have been completed. CA employees are able to use up to three workdays each year to give back through company sponsored events, or volunteer activities of their choice. In addition, employees can have up to $5,000 in personal donations matched by the company each fiscal year.

“We are excited to partner with CA Technologies in cultivating 21st century skills and a genuine enthusiasm for the STEM fields among our students,” said Samantha Marciano, Program Coordinator, Girls Inc. “Engaging girls at the middle school age, when most tend to abandon thoughts of a future in the STEM field is critical. It is our hope that participating in panel discussion as well as a hands-on robotic activity will spark excitement in the students to consider STEM related educational and career opportunities in the future.”
