We view corporate citizenship and social responsibility as fundamental to our role as a member of the global community.
By supporting the communities in which we operate and investing in broader healthcare issues, we believe that we can create positive change. Discover how we are continually striving to do that through our key initiatives concerning access to healthcare, malaria eradication, HIV testing and treatment and community engagement.
Alere Serves—our company-wide employee volunteer program.
We believe it is important to give back to the communities in which we operate – it is part of being a good corporate citizen. Alere Serves is our company-wide employee volunteer program, which provides opportunities for associates around the world to make a difference in their local communities.
Alere Serves allows employee volunteers to create lasting, meaningful impact with nonprofit organizations. We work in teams all over the world to support food donation banks, rebuild damaged animal shelters, serve meals at community kitchens, organize projects for special needs camps, harvest crops at sustainable farms and help less fortunate children get ready for back-to-school.
