Ken Hair, Children in Crisis president and CEO, thanks more than 60 volunteers of the Boeing Company for their “Global Month of Service Campaign” workday at the Children In Crisis Neighborhood.

More than 60 team members from the Boeing Company rolled up their sleeves on a recent Saturday morning to help make the Children in Crisis Neighborhood a little nicer for the more than 100 kids that will call it home this year.

The Boeing Month of Service is designed to engage employees to volunteer as "One Boeing" during the month of July. The annual observance also serves as a focal point for the many activities that Boeing employees engage in year-round by volunteering as part of company efforts and in their personal lives to build better communities.

Hank Sanders, director, SOF PROGRAMS and Fort Walton Beach site lead said, “Working together with Children In Crisis to improve the environment for the young people who find shelter there is a heartening task for us. It is our intent to make a positive difference in the community and I hope that our efforts this year will set an example for others to follow in the future. At Boeing we take pride in being able to give back to the communities where our employees work and live throughout the year and especially during our annual Global Month of Service campaign.”
