One of SIOR's founding principles is centered around service - service to clients, service to the industry, and service to the community. Each year on May 8, SIORs from around the country honor our core founding principle of service by giving back to their communities in a variety of ways. From packaging food for developing countries, to fostering confidence and self-esteem in children with special needs, to beautifying a local school, our Chapters and members gave their time, energy, and care to those around them.
Service is our year-round responsibility, so we believe that the celebration of SIOR Service Day should not be confined to a 24-hour period. We've highlighted some ways our members have given back for Service Day, and be sure to check our website to see how other Chapters will be serving those around them throughout 2019.
