We help & care all around the world
At Johnson & Johnson, we are proud of our long legacy of giving back to the communities in which we work and live. Here are examples of events we regularly organize in the Czech Republic as well as internationally, because we care.
Several times a year a group of J&J employees visits a blood donation center in one of the Prague hospitals to donate blood to help anyone who may need it.
At least twice a year, we organize a Bake Sale event where our culinary skilled colleagues prepare absolutely delightful cakes and cookies of various shapes and tastes. During the Chef’s Parade Day, we are also treated to dishes from across the world, with European, Asian and also South American cuisine, enjoying the variety, colors and amazing tastes. All money collected from these events is then donated to non-profit organizations to serve for a good cause.
For the benefit of those in need we regularly organize clothes, toys or school necessities collections, mobilizing the whole J&J workforce we have in the Czech Republic, involving them in these amazing charitable events. All collected items are then donated to non-profit organizations which use it for their clients.
Every Christmas for the past several years we have been in close connection with Santa as well as Ježíšek to help them deliver gifts for children from children’s homes or for elderly citizens. We love to prove everyone in J&J cares and feels empowered to give back to the community we live in.
