SAMSUNG wins 1998 Awards for Excellence in Corporate Community Service

Samsung wins "1998 Award for Excellence in Corporate Community Service" from the Washington, D.C.-based Points of Light Foundation.
Samsung Community Relations will accept the award on September 9 during the annual awards ceremony in Atlanta, GA. Retired Army General, Colin L. Powell, Chairman of America's Promise - The Alliance for Youth, will give the keynote speech and assist in presenting the awards.

Samsung was recognized for its employee volunteer program utilizing its own technical knowledge, human resources and equipment and its community support of excellence in physically challenged and disaster relief service. In particular, the Foundation acknowledged Samsung's family volunteering could create opportunities for family quality time, provide positive role models for children and help families feel connected to the company and the community.

According to the Foundation cites "Corporations today are realizing the value and benefit of employee volunteering and fully appreciate its impact on the community, the employees, and the ultimately the company. The 1998 Awards for Excellence in Corporate Community Service are shining examples of strategically planned and managed programs that benefit each of their companies' bottom lines."

The Awards for Excellence in Corporate Community Service are a way to acknowledge businesses which practice outstanding employee volunteer programs. The Points of Light Foundation seeks companies that target their employee volunteer programs to help combat alienation and disconnection in society.

Other companies receiving the 1998 Award for Excellence in Corporate Community Service are Time Warner Inc.; the Timberland Company; United Technological Corporation ; the Home Depot; Southwest Gas Corporation; and the Yakima Herald-Republic.
