CAMPAIGN: Lilly Strengthening Communities


Last year, more than 24,000 Lilly employees in 60 countries volunteered in their local communities as part of the company’s Global Day of Service. As we gear up for this year’s Global Day of Service, one of the largest single-day, company volunteer initiatives in the U.S., we’re reminded of the lasting impact our service has on communities around the world, including our headquarters city, Indianapolis.
On Sept. 13, culinary students at Ivy Tech, a local community college, served delicious, handcrafted plum-jalapeño jam during a local Celebration Fall Creek event, thanks in part to the 2012 and 2013 Global Day of Service Fall Creek Parkway initiatives that aimed to further enhance the Fall Creek community. Last year as part of a Global Day of Service project, 2,300 volunteers from Lilly and 400 students and faculty from Ivy Tech worked together to help transform an area outside of Ivy Tech and Fall Creek into an urban orchard for the Ivy Tech culinary program.
