Helping Through Volunteerism

At SC Johnson, we believe making a difference means more than just financial contributions. It also means rolling up our sleeves and lending a hand through volunteerism in our communities. That's a key part of being a family company.

Many SC Johnson employees share their time with worthy organizations, including community food banks and other service organizations. And, that service is recognized with our Dollars for Doers program in the United States, which rewards non-profit organizations for service there by employees or retirees.

Here are examples of SC Johnson people and operations around the world helping their neighbors and communities.
