Ribbon Employees Volunteer Around the World to Contribute to Non-profits As Part of Ribbon Day

By Arti Loftus October 15, 2021

Many companies engage in philanthropic endeavors to give back to the communities that they serve. This week, Ribbon Communications Inc., a worldwide provider of real-time communications software and IP optical networking solutions for enterprises, service providers, and critical infrastructure sectors, will hold its  annual Global Day of Service, also known as Ribbon Day. As part of the company's culture, Ribbon team members will have the opportunity to participate as volunteers in contributing and supporting non-profit organizations around the world.

"Ribbon and all of our predecessor companies have a very strong history of volunteerism and supporting the communities in which we live and work," said Petrena Ferguson, Senior Vice President of Human Resources for Ribbon. "Ribbon Day is our way of recognizing the incredible work done by our team members throughout the year. Our global teams take pride in assisting and supporting non-profit organizations, local charities, and causes that have special meaning to them. Ribbon Day really exemplifies what our team members are all about – compassion and giving."

Make-A-Wish Israel, which is part of a universal organization that is spread out across 45 different countries, is one of the institutions that the Ribbon team will be working with. Make-A-Wish grants life-changing wishes to children with severe illnesses aged between 3 and 18.

"This is the fifth year that Ribbon has made a difference in these children's lives by helping to grant their one true wish," said Denise Bar-Aharon, Co-Founder & CEO, Make-A-Wish Israel. "During that time, Ribbon has donated more than 40,000 shekels via their annual fair at which Ribbon employees work diligently to sell products and food to make as many wishes as possible come true during "Good Deeds Day" in Israel."

"Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Ribbon team won't be hosting an annual fair this year, however, they will still take part in the adoption, planning, and execution of another magical wish." Ms. Bar-Aharon added. "We are extremely grateful and proud to work with a true committed partner who supports us no matter what is going on in our world!"

Aside from various individual volunteer activities, the following is a list of planned activities taking place in major global regions.
