DIRECTV Employees Give Back This Holiday Season

DIRECTV Employees Give Back This Holiday Season

In the spirit of the season, DIRECTV employees gave their time, energy and money to ensure that people in need had enough to eat. DIRECTV Cares for the Holidays provides DIRECTV employees the opportunity to give back to their communities during the holiday season. Additionally, The Feeding Hearts initiative, run by internal cultural organization People of DIRECTV (POD), brought together employees from all over the country to sort food, build boxes, sanitize items, pack kits and support other efforts to provide for families in Atlanta, Boise, Houston, Los Angeles and Puerto Rico.  DIRECTV Cares for the Holidays projects will also take place in Dallas, Denver, Huntington, WV, Missoula, MT and Sunrise, FL.
