„We know what those communities deeply care about, and this was a chance to help“
Ron Bension, president and CEO ASM Global
ASM Global's corporate social responsibility platform, ASM Global Acts (unveiled in 2021), elevated the entertainment giant's commitment to protect the environment, invest in people and strengthen communities around the globe. "When we launched the foundation, our goal was to harness our ASM Global team's experience and knowledge gained from long-time involvement in the markets where our hundreds of venues are located. We know what those communities deeply care about, and this was a chance to help," said Ron Bension, president and CEO of ASM Global. ASM Global's chief human resources officer, Shauna Elvin, said, "It was a remarkable effort by an energised workforce determined to make a difference around the world in the same places where our teams work, play and live." "Global Month of Giving" activities spanned the globe and included: Blood donation drives; toy drives for homeless families; home packs for Thanksgiving; adopt-a-family programmes; meal boxes serving underprivileged communities; assembling goodie bags for hospitalised children; cold-weather clothing drives; staffing shelters; honouring military personnel by collecting cards to send to troops and veterans; Ukrainian clothing drives; preparing meal boxes to helping provide crisis relief to musicians, managers and crew workers unable to work due to health, injury, mental health or other crises.
