The Joys of Fall

Fall is one of my favorite seasons and not just because it means the end of summer heat and the welcome of crisp autumn mornings. Every fall, AT&T employees participate in our annual Employee Giving Campaign. And every fall I am reminded of the generosity of the more than 130,000 employees who give back to their community through our campaign. This year was no different – over the last two months we have collected pledges from 131,207 employees, totaling more than $36 million!

If you visited our headquarters in September, you would have seen hundreds of employees eating cotton candy and playing games as we kicked off our campaign at the annual kick-off carnival.
