Our mission, our excellent science and our strong sense of purpose, partnering for healthier lives, guide us in all that we do.

Our Goals

In 2012, Charles River launched One Day, a corporate social responsibility program that provides employees with a day to volunteer in the communities where they live and work. Since the program’s inception, employees have volunteered thousands of hours to charitable organizations across the globe.

Commitment to our communities: In 2015, Charles River employees globally participated in more than 3,200 volunteer opportunities in their local communities, volunteering more than 14,000 hours across approximately 430 volunteer events. In 2016, we aim to further increase employee participation in One Day as we strive to meet the greatest needs in our community.

Commitment to our planet: In 2015, Charles River expanded its team and funding to focus on energy conservation investments that will positively impact our planet today and lead to a better tomorrow.

Our Communities

Through our One Day program, employees have the opportunity to volunteer in their communities as:

• Mentors
• Environmental advocates
• Joy bringers
• Meal preparers
• Dream makers
• Community champions

Employees have partnered with schools in China, knitted blankets for children’s hospitals in Ohio, assembled bikes for under-resourced youth in Reno, packaged more than 80,000 meals for children in need around the world, and collected and donated thousands of pounds of food to shelters across the U.S. This is a small snapshot of the many ways we are committed to serving the communities where we live and work, one day at a time.

Therapeutic Areas

Each year, employees participate in site-wide events in support of two therapeutic areas where we are working hard to help find a cure: Alzheimer’s disease and breast cancer. From awareness walks to honoring those in our lives affected by these diseases, we are partnering with each other and with our communities for healthier lives. To see more photos of these events, please visit us on Facebook and LinkedIn.
