DISH employees from around the country recently joined together for the inaugural ‘DISH Day of Service,’ a companywide day of volunteering and community outreach. DISH Day of Service is part of the company’s corporate citizenship program, DISH Cares, which promotes community engagement through employee volunteerism.

More than 1,000 volunteers took part in 100 events across 28 states, making it the largest volunteering initiative in DISH’s history. The groups supported 80 different nonprofits and a variety of causes, including health, education, hunger, poverty, and the environment.
