Aon colleagues from the Aon offices in Norwalk and Stamford met at Richards in Greenwich to assemble gift bags and write thank-you notes to help the Alzheimer’s Association, Connecticut Chapter, prepare for its Celebrating Hope 2014 Gala fund raising event.

Celebrating its commitment to empowering economic and human possibility, colleagues from Aon’s Stamford and Norwalk offices partnered with local charities Abilis, Alzheimer’s Association, Connecticut Chapter, and Homes for the Brave to take part in Aon’s Global Service Day on June 12 in Greenwich.

This was part of a company-wide initiative where colleagues in more than 40 countries volunteered their time and efforts to support more than 170 charity partners in their communities. Aon is a business of Aon plc (NYSE: AON), a global provider of risk management and human resources solutions.

Aon colleagues volunteered to garden and paint to beautify the buildings and grounds at the headquarters and group homes run by Abilis in Greenwich and Stamford, and assembled gift bags and wrote thank-you notes to help the Alzheimer’s Association, Connecticut Chapter, prepare for its Celebrating Hope 2014 Gala fundraising event that was held at Richard’s on Greenwich Avenue.

In addition, Aon colleagues are collecting much-needed supplies for Homes for the Brave, a nonprofit organization that provides housing, vocational training and job placement, mental health and addiction services, and life skills coaching to help individuals, especially veterans, leave homelessness behind, at its offices in Norwalk and Stamford.

Aon’s Global Service Day featured a social media campaign in partnership with the Red Cross to raise money for a children’s vaccination program in Mali.

For every Global Service Day post by an Aon colleague to Instagram, Twitter and Aon’s internal Yammer network, Aon donated $1 to provide a Measles or Rubella vaccination for a child in Mali.

With a goal of vaccinating 10,000 young people, Aon colleagues have the opportunity to make an impact on a community in need while also sharing their Global Service Day experience through social media.

Colleagues and community partners are encouraged to use the hashtag #EmpowerResults to share their events and activities as donations are still being made.

“The core of any corporation’s citizenship is how its business contributes to society and to the communities where its colleagues live and work,” said Greg Case, Aon plc president and chief executive officer.

“Our colleagues united as a firm to give back to their local communities in order to empower those who need it most,” said Mr. Case.
