LifeLock, Inc. launched its inaugural day of volunteerism, where, as part of their regular work schedule, employees leave their desks, roll up their sleeves and give back to local communities in a day of service. All of LifeLock’s 675+ employees are invited to join the event, called “Do-Gooder Day,” across office locations in Tempe, San Diego and Mountain View, Calif.
“We’re proud to be putting our values into action during this day of service on the tenth anniversary of our company. It’s one of the many ways we’re invested in our local communities and contributing our expertise where there is a need for a helping hand,” said Todd Davis, chief executive officer of LifeLock.
The company’s social responsibility mission is to help keep families safer in an always-connected world. In addition to providing services that help members gain some peace of mind, LifeLock is also focused on volunteerism and giving back to communities in ways that further its mission. With the first Do-Gooder Day, LifeLock is making tangible strides in key areas of focus, including providing education to help protect against identity broadly in local communities.
Highlights of the day include:
Sojourner Center: The Tempe based Center is one of the largest domestic violence shelters in the United States and is committed to transforming lives. Employees will sweep, mop, dust and organize the Donation Center and Education Center. They’ll also maintain vacant apartments.
Second Harvest Food Bank: With its Cypress Center in San Jose, Second Harvest is a trusted leader dedicated to ending local hunger, providing food to nearly a quarter million people ever month. Volunteers will sort food at the food bank’s warehouse.
Boys and Girls Club San Diego: The San Diego chapter of the Boys & Girls Club provides children’s programs that drive academic success, character development and healthy lifestyle programs. Volunteers will be assisting staff, helping out with transportation and cleaning facilities.
“Volunteerism and giving back has been an integral part of our company from its inception. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate a decade of being in business than dedicating a day of service to our nonprofit partners that give so much to the community,” said Hilary Schneider, president of LifeLock.
As part of the company’s commitment to help fight identity theft, LifeLock trains law enforcement, victim advocates and collaborates with a variety of non-profit organizations to help consumers establish positive habits to combat identity threats. For example, LifeLock partnered with the nonprofit FBI Law Enforcement Executive Development Association (FBI-LEEDA) to provide free training to law enforcement throughout the United States and has reached more than 11,000 law enforcement officers, representing more than 4,000 agencies in all 50 states. LifeLock also partnered with the nonprofit National Organization for Victim Assistance (NOVA) to provide training to victim advocates throughout the United States. LifeLock’s partnerships with non-profit organizations focus on parents of pre-teen children, foster children, and victims of domestic violence, who may be at higher risk of identity fraud. Since 2014, LifeLock has partnered with the National Parent Teacher Association to teach good digital citizenship and online safety habits for children.
