More than 500 Irvine-based employees from Johnson & Johnson MedTech recently took part in a weeklong volunteer campaign, donating their time and energy to support a variety of charities across Orange County.
Their work included donating 47 units of blood, which will be used to save the lives of up to 141 hospital patients, harvesting more than 30,000 pounds of fresh produce for Second Harvest Food Bank and clearing trash from 2.5 miles of the county’s coastline. The volunteers contributed a total of more than 1,000 hours of service during the week of Aug. 7.
Their work was part of the company’s Week of Caring, an annual initiative aimed at fostering a culture of collaboration, giving back and making a positive impact on local communities.
Irvine is home to the Johnson & Johnson Institute, a cutting-edge medical training center.
