Riverbed announced that during the week of November 13, over 600 employee volunteers will perform more than 1,000 hours of community service at local charitable organizations in 15 of the Company’s largest global locations.

The annual Riverbed REACH OUT (Riverbed Employees Assisting Community and Helping Out) Week will help out nonprofit organizations focused on anti-poverty efforts, natural disaster relief, disadvantaged youth, community development, and education.

Riverbed expanded REACH OUT Week worldwide in 2017 after a successful pilot program last year at its headquarters in San Francisco where more than 200 employees volunteered at five local charities, cleaning and decorating homeless shelters, sorting food at the local food bank and supporting the city library. This year’s global expansion will more than double the amount of community service provided by employees during Riverbed REACH OUT Week, and compliments company volunteer and fundraising efforts that take place at Riverbed throughout the year.

“It is part of Riverbed’s DNA to invest in community and sustainability programs to make a positive impact in the world on a global and local level,” said Jerry M. Kennelly, CEO and Co-Founder of Riverbed. “As a company, ‘community minded’ is one of our values. We strive to be a positive force through volunteer programs and financial contributions, with a focus on supporting charitable organizations that help those underserved in our communities.”

Riverbed REACH OUT Week includes volunteer projects in the U.S. (San Francisco; San Sunnyvale/San Jose; Thousand Oaks, CA; Bethesda, MD; Nashua, NH; New York City; Boston/Cambridge; Champaign, IL), EMEA (Bracknell, UK – near London; Hoofddorp, Netherlands; Cluj, Romania) and APJ (Singapore; Sydney; Bangalore) regions.

Throughout Riverbed’s history, employees have volunteered together through Riverbed REACH OUT (Riverbed Employees Assisting Community and Helping OUT). The mission of Riverbed REACH OUT is to mobilize employee volunteers in our local communities and provide charitable donations to organizations that address anti-poverty programs, natural disaster relief and disadvantaged youth​.​
