CVS Health has been named a 2020 honoree of The Civic 50 by Points of Light, one of the world’s largest organizations dedicated to volunteer service. This marks the fourth consecutive year that CVS Health has been named to The Civic 50.
The award recognizes CVS Health as one of the 50 most community-minded companies in the United States. The Civic 50 provides a national standard for superior corporate citizenship and showcases how companies can use their time, skills and resources to impact their communities.
The Civic 50 honorees are public and private companies with U.S. operations and revenues of $1 billion or more, and are selected based on four dimensions of their U.S. community engagement program, including investment, integration, institutionalization and impact.
“Our positive impacts are possible because of the tremendous work of our CVS Health colleagues,” said Eileen Howard Boone, Senior Vice President, Corporate Social Responsibility & Philanthropy and Chief Sustainability Officer for CVS Health. “Our colleagues are living our purpose every day by giving back their time to improve the health of our communities.”
In 2019, CVS Health employees donated more than $12 million worth of volunteer time. From team service projects to serving on boards as mentors and company hosted volunteer activities, employees participated in thousands of volunteer events representing CVS Health in their local communities.
