Walking down the streets or through a mall in December, you’re likely to hear legendary crooner Andy Williams describe how we feel: “It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” The holiday season warms spirits, and gets people in the mood to give back. At Lilly, however, giving back doesn’t just happen once a year, it happens every day. That’s been the case for a while, and our partnership with the United Way shows this first hand:
As our work with United Way demonstrates, at Lilly the most wonderful time of the year never ends.
For us, philanthropy has become a part of our relationships with people in our backyards and around the world. In
2015, it drove our commitment to raising awareness for people with diabetes. We even took those
efforts on “Tour.” Also this year we were honored to receive accolades for our unique partnership to combat multidrug-resistant tuberculosis.
We connected with hearts abroad in Brazil, India, and added to our 28,000 hours the more than 800 ambassadors Lilly has sponsored to date. And of course, 24,000 of us took a day away from our desks and labs to serve communities in over 65 countries during our 8th annual Global Day of Service.
Although we’ll spare you the holiday music all year long, as you can see it’s always the most wonderful time of year for us – and we look forward to continuing to share that joy with you in 2016 and beyond.
