The Heart of Our Culture Is Rooted in Volunteerism
At Eastern, our colleagues selflessly give of their time, unique talents and skills to advance the causes they are passionate about. Our collective volunteer efforts create strong, sustainable impact in the communities where we live and work.
Pre-COVID, our colleagues donated more than 50,000 volunteer hours annually, among the most of any Massachusetts-based company. This spirit of generosity brings people together from different backgrounds through a shared interest, creating positive change and transforming lives.
Even during the pandemic, our colleagues are continuing to make a difference through their virtual involvement in a variety of organizations, from serving on nonprofit boards, to facilitating financial education workshops, to providing meals at a shelter, to sorting food and clothing, and reading to students. We are inspired by their dedication and encouraged by their impact. We look forward to a time when we can return to in-person volunteering.
Here are a few examples of how our support shows up in the community:
