St. Louis Fleet Event: Thirty-nine students from Maplewood- Richmond Heights High School, North Technical High School, and Lift for Life Academy had a unique experience when they spent the day at AT&T’s fleet headquarters in St. Louis. Throughout the day, the students had the opportunity to interact with employees who work with our alternative-fuel vehicle fleet.

Our employees celebrated National Volunteer Week by submitting volunteer project ideas for philanthropic support from AT&T and then rallying their fellow employees to vote for the most impactful projects. Top favorites included the following:
Backpack in the Park: A group of AT&T employees in Atlanta rallied to support children from low-income families in Georgia by helping them become fully prepared for their first day of school. With company philanthropic support, employees filled 1,400 backpacks with school supplies and distributed them to nine community organizations that help needy children prepare for school.
Helping Our Military Every day: Committed to ensuring that our troops are remembered and appreciated on a consistent basis, the AT&T Pioneers in Wisconsin put together 5,450 care packages and created nearly 11,700 birthday cards with the help of corporate funding for supplies.
2 The financial equivalent is determined by using $21.36/per volunteer hour, which is based on the 2010 industry standard from
Independent Sector, a leading nonprofit organization that determines the financial equivalent for a variety of volunteer initiatives. http://www.independentsector.org/programs/research/volunteer_time.html
