AbbVie’s Dublin Employees Transform Dublin DEIS School’s Science Facilities During Their Annual Volunteering Week Activity reflects company’s commitment to promoting science education. AbbVie, a global biopharmaceutical company with offices in Citywest and Santry, recently celebrated its sixth annual Week of Possibilities. This week-long initiative is the company’s signature volunteering programme involving more than 9,000 employees globally who work with local non-profit partners to help make a difference in communities around the world. More than 60 AbbVie employees from the company’s commercial HQ in Citywest and from the company’s manufacturing and engineering services office in Santry helped refurbish a science lab at New Cross College, Finglas during the week-long initiative.

The activity reflects the company’s ongoing commitment to science education and students will now have a new-look science facility when they return from their summer break in September. AbbVie volunteer efforts included the cleaning, sanding and painting the school’s laboratory benches, worktops and walls. They also helped create a series of striking murals. The 60-strong team replaced and fitted new science equipment to encourage a stimulating science-focused learning environment. As a company, AbbVie believes in making a strong commitment to local communities and the company undertakes improvement projects – particularly in education – through charitable giving as well as employee engagement. AbbVie has joined forces with the national volunteer development agency, Volunteer Ireland on their Irish projects.
