This year&rsquo;s event has a record number of participants, with more than 4,600 Schwabbies donating approximately 18,000 service hours to 376 projects benefiting over 200 charities.</p> <p>We support a vibrant mix of national nonprofit groups such as Boys &amp; Girls Clubs, Habitat for Humanity, Goodwill and The Salvation Army, as well as local schools, parks, food banks, cultural centers, and organizations that provide health and human services to women, children, families and seniors.</p> <p>Employee volunteer photos will be posted throughout the week on <span style="font-size:11.0pt;font-family:&quot;Calibri&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;color:#1f497d"><a target="_blank" href="http://photos.aboutschwab.com/Schwab-Volunteer-Week">http://photos.aboutschwab.com/<wbr></wbr>Schwab-Volunteer-Week</a></span>.
