AOL gives back with Monster Help Day -- get to know some of the organizations
This Friday, May 13 is AOL's corporate volunteer day, Monster Help Day. Last year, 3,000 employees in 27 cities volunteered 11,000 hours of their time to support 63 non-profit organizations, and this year, we're going even bigger with 150 projects in 47 cities!
These projects cover a range of needs, from teaching kids to code to helping victims of domestic violence with confidence building and career readiness. In an effort to bring the day to life for you, we will be spotlighting a variety of our partners, showing how you can get involved with their meaningful work.
