Amgen employees in Turkey organized a community service initiative to mark the country’s annual National Children’s Day (April 23rd). Amgen staff donated barrels of toys, backpacks, shoes and clothing for needy children, which was distributed to 150 children in poor, rural communities. 

Amgen recognizes the importance of giving back to our local communities. Each year, thousands of Amgen staff generously devote their personal time, energy, talents and funds to a variety of charitable organizations across the globe. Amgen encourages staff to become involved in their local communities through Amgen Impact Day, which offers staff members a paid day off to volunteer, as well as the Amgen Foundation’s staff involvement programs: Amgen Volunteers and Matching Gifts.
