Working Together, We Did It!
Thanks to you, the 2014 Community Days and Employee Giving Campaign were a huge success. From coast to coast, more than 12,500 employees volunteered as One McKesson, demonstrating our ICARE shared spirit and commitment to better health in our communities.
We also raised $155,000 for Giving Comfort and increased those donations further by requesting more than $66,000 in matching gifts through the McKesson Foundation.

Why I Volunteered
“It was heartwarming to see the crowd of employees who showed up to volunteer. Not everyone with cancer has someone to provide comfort. It’s great that McKesson takes time out of the workday to passionately contribute to this cause and to make someone’s day a little brighter.”
- Tiffany Avin, Senior SharePoint analyst
“My family has lost many loved ones to cancer. I made the effort to participate in Community Days so that I could help provide comfort and bring a smile to a cancer patient’s face.”
- Nina Richey, Financial system analyst
San Francisco, CA
“I am proud that McKesson cares about people in our community. You never know whose life you are going to touch in a single moment.”
- Susan Worley, Data management manager
“Our Community Days event means a lot to me because I’ve lost family members to cancer. I’m happy to help a cancer patient anytime I can. Hopefully the blankets we created will give warmth to patients going through chemo and show them that someone cares.”
- Dedrick Gilchrist, Business process analyst
There’s still time! Donate directly to Giving Comfort or through a friend or team to help them reach their goals.
