On October 7th, 2016, Shire hosted its second annual Global Day of Service. Over one-third of the employees of our recently combined company participated in volunteer projects worldwide. Employee volunteers dedicated over 25,000 hours of their time in 150+ locations around the globe. Many projects focused on children “overcoming odds,” from our employees helping prepare the SeriousFun Children’s Network camp in Ireland for fall programs, to developing activity booklets for sick children in Switzerland. Check out our recap video to learn more about #ShireGDS!
