HSBC

Through their involvement with Volunteers of America, HSBC has positively impacted the lives of disadvantaged children across the nation.

Their support of Operation Backpack extended to three metropolitan areas where Volunteers of America has a presence and an Operation Backpack program — both in New York City and Chicago — helping us deliver more backpacks in 2014 than ever before: 18,400 in New York City alone. 

HSBC and its employees take pride in fostering a connection to their customers and to the communities in which it does business. So who better to demonstrate this commitment than teams of HSBC employee volunteers, delighted to take a hands-on role in preparing New York City children for the first day of school? Many expressed a personal satisfaction at helping these students begin the year with confidence, and spoke of getting an early start on preparing for next year’s campaign.

HSBC recognizes its responsibility in contributing to a thriving, successful society. The bank seeks out initiatives that make a difference in people's lives, whether through its own company sponsored programs, such as YourMoneyCounts, or through a mix of financial giving and employee volunteerism to an array of non-profit organizations across the country.

As education is a key philanthropic focus for the company, HSBC staff believes that Operation Backpack is a valuable way to help bring stability to the lives of homeless children.
