As part of 21st Century Fox’s commitment to making a positive impact in the local communities where its colleagues live and work, the company is launching 21CF Impact Week. The inaugural week of nationwide service starts today.
Colleagues based in New York, Los Angeles and select cities across the U.S. will volunteer at schools, parks and community centers. Service opportunities include a “Rocky Horror Picture Show”-themed hike for charity, an ice cream social and sing-along night at a senior assisted living center, packing and donating military and school supply care packages, a science scavenger hunt for kids at the American Museum of Natural History, and several other volunteering events. Over 1,000 colleagues are expected to participate in the pilot program this year.
At the company’s recent All Hands meeting, 21CF Executive Chairman Lachlan Murdoch and CEO James Murdoch touched on the importance of giving back to our communities.
“It’s important for our colleagues to know that 21CF is more than just a commercial enterprise; we are a company that considers the impacts we have on the world around us,” 21CF Executive Chairman Lachlan Murdoch said.
“We’re a business that believes its long-term health is tied to the positive social impact we make on the communities we serve, and we encourage all our colleagues to join in the effort,” 21CF CEO James Murdoch added.
