On June 16, business leaders – joined by Super Bowl MVP Drew Brees – celebrated service and the outstanding achievements of companies that give back to nonprofits and their communities through the workplace.

A Billion + Change, a movement to inspire 5,000 companies to do more skills-based volunteering, announced its new partnership with the Super Service Challenge, a nationwide contest to promote volunteering in the workplace. The partnership will include several local events that will happen throughout the year to educate and inspire companies to get more involved in volunteering.

Brees of the New Orleans Saints, a supporter of the Super Service Challenge, joined A Billion + Change at the reception to meet with top corporate service leaders to encourage them to share their employees’ stories of their service in the community.

“The impact you make by serving the organizations that you serve, lets them know that someone cares about them,” Brees said. “In many cases people just want to know that someone cares about them and has their best interest at heart.”

Brees also helped recognize several Billion + Change pledge companies who are driving the skills-based volunteer movement with a token of appreciation – autographed footballs. All-Star awardees included: [insert names here].

At Points of Light, we encourage companies of all sizes to join or deepen their involvement with the Billion + Change movement by pledging a commitment to skills-based volunteering or by sharing their service stories.
