GM Employee Foundation Korea is spearheading a "Volunteer Festival" throughout October, led by GM leadership and employees in Korea, who are actively participating in various volunteer activities in and around Bupyeong-gu, Incheon. The initiative aims to promote active community engagement.

The GM Employee Foundation executes various social contributions for the benefit of its neighbors, in line with GM's values of diversity and inclusivity. This event provides an opportunity to foster a mutually beneficial culture with the local community and uphold the company's commitment to corporate social responsibility.

In conjunction with the festival, a market selling donated goods was launched on 25th October at GM Korean operations’ Bupyeong headquarters, by Hector Villarreal, CEO and President of GM Korean operations, Brian McMurray, President of GM’s Engineering Center in Korea, alongside GM employees. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the local community.

"I am pleased to see GM's culture of sharing come to life through our Volunteer Festival as we continue our symbiotic relationship with the local community.” Hector Villarreal said, “Our employees are playing a big role in donating goods and of particular significance is knowing that all sales proceeds generated during this festival will go to the local community through various avenues.”

"The Employee Foundation Volunteer Festival holds immense importance as it is an initiative driven directly by our employees. Groups like GM Dreams, a volunteer organization under GM Employee Foundation Korea play a key role in offering support to our neighbors in need and we will continue prioritizing these social contribution activities.” Brian McMurray said, “As members of this community, GM will do our best to put our diversity and inclusivity values into action.”

Throughout the Volunteer Festival in October, GM employees are engaging in a variety of volunteer activities, including ▲ beautifying and enhancing local community parks, ▲ enhancing the amenities of social welfare facilities, ▲ local attractions outings, and craft experiences with visually impaired individuals, and ▲ volunteering at free meal centers. These activities aim to expand a culture of mutual support between GM and its local community.

Since its establishment in 2005, GM Employee Foundation Korea has consistently been involved in various social contribution activities to improve the stability of vulnerable groups within the local community and improve the local community. Through these efforts, it has expanded GM's values of diversity and inclusivity. Notably, employees of GM’s Korean Operations have taken the lead in actively contributing over 210,000 hours of volunteer work to support underprivileged groups in the local community, including children, senior citizens, and individuals with disabilities.
