Contribute to Communities – Volunteering

Solving the world’s toughest challenges requires everyone to play their part and AbbVie is passionate about collaborating with others to do more in local communities.


Week of Possibilities

Week of Possibilities initiative is the company’s signature annual volunteering and community support programme. In 2018, it involved more than 9,000 employees in 50+ countries coming together to make a difference in their respective communities around the world.

Locally, AbbVie joined forces with the national development agency Volunteer Ireland to implement Week of Possibilities projects in three communities in Cork, Sligo and Dublin. The company has a major presence at each of these locations.

In total, more than 350 AbbVie employees volunteered almost 1,700 hours in a single week to help make a remarkable impact for students of St Aloysius’s College, Carrigtwohill, Cork; Greenhills College in Walkinstown, South Dublin; and St Edward’s National School, Ballytivnan, Sligo.

A Week of Achievements

AbbVie in Ireland’s volunteering efforts were recently featured in a video presentation. The video features contributions from AbbVie employees in Cork, Dublin and Sligo as they re-visited projects from the previous year’s Week of Possibilities initiative. Children and residents of Sophia House in Dublin also feature in the video and had the opportunity to shadow the international film crew during the week-long shoot. Sophia is a homeless initiative supported by all AbbVie sites in Ireland.

The All For One AbbVie Cycle Challenge

During the summer of 2018, dozens of cyclists from across AbbVie’s sites in Ireland, as well as some employees from the US, took to the road for the annual AbbVie Cycle Challenge. The goal was to raise much-needed funds for the North West Hospice, Marymount Hospice and Aoibheann’s Pink Tie children’s cancer charity.

To date, more than 250 AbbVie cyclists have travelled more approximately 2,000 km for worthy charities.
