    AccuWeather gives back to Happy Valley through corporate donations and the many contributions of its staff.

    AccuWeather Global Weather Center - August 5, 2016 - AccuWeather, the global leader in weather information and digital media, is proud to be an active part of the State College community and lead the way in volunteerism and altruistic giving. To recognize this important area of focus and the many contributions of its staff members, AccuWeather is pleased to announce AccuWeather Rays of Hope, a new initiative that will be used to encourage charitable giving and sponsorships.

    "AccuWeather Rays of Hope showcases all of the ways that the great people on our team are making a difference in the community," said Elizabeth Soroka, Senior Director of Human Resources at AccuWeather. "We are very proud of our staff, which is comprised of the best and brightest from all around the world. It is not surprising that such a talented, entrepreneurial group continuously takes the initiative to contribute their time and resources to their communities. We want to share their stories and highlight the great work they are doing as examples to inspire more volunteerism."

    The first AccuWeather Rays of Hope charitable giving event is the American Red Cross Blood Drive on August 8 at AccuWeather Global Headquarters in State College. Staff members who participate will receive an AccuWeather Rays of Hope t-shirt - a special honor to be worn by employees at future volunteer events.

    AccuWeather employees are very active in their communities, supporting groups such as Centre County PAWS, The Centre Wildlife Care, Penn State Student Mentoring, Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts, and many more.

    AccuWeather also sponsors events including the Free to Breathe Lung Cancer fundraiser and organizations such as the American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, American Red Cross, Special Olympics, United Way, The Discovery Space Children's Science Center, and numerous other charitable causes.

    The AccuWeather Rays of Hope initiative will continue to grow as more AccuWeather team members share their stories and proudly wear the t-shirt as they donate their time in the community.
