Hasbro Employees Volunteer with SOS Children’s Villages for Second Annual Global Day of Joy

January 29, 2015

SOS Children’s Villages is honored to have been a beneficiary of Hasbro’s second annual Global Day of Joy in December 2014. This exciting volunteer initiative saw Hasbro employees from around the world spread cheer and bring positive change to thousands of children in 33 countries. Hasbro employees in five countries chose to support the children at their local SOS Children’s Village (Russia, Romania, the Czech Republic, Greece and Peru). They hosted Game Day events, designed special play-spaces, decorated for the holidays and delivered hundreds of toys and games to their local village.
