L'Oreal USA Employees Give Back to Local Communities Across the Country

2012 Marks L'Oreal's Fourth Nationwide Day of Service

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jun 21, 2012) - Today marks the fourth nationwide day of service for L'Oréal USA with over 3,000 employees giving back in the communities in which they live and work. From North Little Rock, Arkansas to Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, L'Oréal USA employees around the country will engage in a variety of volunteer projects including children's education, resume building with unemployed adults, environmental revitalization, arts and crafts with seniors, food preparation and serving those who are homebound, among many other initiatives. In total over 12,000 hours of community service will be donated in a single day.

"At L'Oréal USA, we know the importance of giving back to the local communities in which we do business," said Rebecca Caruso, EVP Corporate Communications and External Affairs. "Our employees really value our nationwide day of service and take great pride in volunteering and contributing to a myriad of projects."

L'Oréal USA encourages its employees to share their talents with local not-for-profits. In fact, this year a new program was established at L'Oréal USA allowing employees to take additional time throughout the year to volunteer on company time. "During my job search I wanted it all, I was looking for a company that was both successful and socially responsible," said Rocio Reyes-Morales, first year Marketer for L'Oreal Paris. "The fact that L'Oréal offers employees the opportunity to volunteer during our annual day of service as well as throughout the year makes me proud to work for L'Oreal USA."

L'Oréal has been recognized by many leading organizations and rating agencies for its ethical standards of behavior and its commitment to operating a sustainable business which provides for the triple bottom line -- economic growth, environmental respect and social responsibility. This year L'Oréal employees can be followed on Twitter where they will be tweeting during the day about their volunteer experiences using #LOrealGivesBack.
