Volkswagen Gives Back to the Community


This past August, Volkswagen Group of America (VWGoA) held its Get Involved Month, where VW employees volunteer with charitable organizations in their communities. VWGoA created Get Involved Month to empower employees to give back and to support the charities that are close to their hearts. In 2016, Get Involved Month held more than 20 different employee volunteer projects around seven sites across the U.S.

In August 2016, more than 300 VWGoA employees volunteered approximately 900 hours with charitable organizations. Employees who showed an incredible level of commitment and dedication to their volunteer projects were awarded with a plaque and a $2,500 donation made to the 501(c)(3) charity of their choice. Winners included John Ellefson, General Manager Customs Operations in Herdon, VA. and David Newell, Master Technician, Electronics Research Laboratory in Belmont, CA.

President and CEO of VWGoA Hinrich J. Woebcken was incredibly impressed with the stunning work his employees brought forth in August. “We are inspired by seeing our employees caring so deeply about the communities where they live and work.” Machelle Williams, General Manager Diversity and CRS, VWGoA, also expressed how proud she was. “We are grateful that so many of our colleagues want to give back to their communities. Not only are their achievements important in helping to build and sustain great neighborhoods but they are also truly valued by everybody here at Volkswagen.”

Volkswagen employees volunteered for many charities around the country, including the following:
  • Bessie’s Table – Made and served dinner to guests
  • Meals on Wheels – Made and delivered meals to seniors in need
  • Rooms of Hope – Provided bedroom makeovers for a child with a life-threatening illness and his sister
  • YMCA of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore – Staffed the YMCA Field Day Event
