In a news story about an Apple employee who has started a barbershop for at-risk youth, Apple today said that between its own donations and employee donations, it donated more than $100 million to charitable causes in 2019. Apple says that 21,000 Apple employees donated their time and donated $42 million to causes they care about. Combined with Apple’s 1-for-1 donation match and $25 match per volunteer hour, the total amount donated climbed to over $100 million. Apple’s vice president of Environment, Policy, and Social Initiatives Lisa Jackson said the company has a mission to “change the world for the better, and give back to the communities in which we live and work.” “Apple employees like Jaz embody this culture of giving every day, volunteering over a quarter of a million hours last year. We share a deep commitment to our local communities and doing what we can to cause more good.” Much of Apple’s story focuses on Jaz Limos, an Apple Park Visitor Center manager in Cupertino who launched Saints of Steel, a nonprofit pop-up barber shop for at-risk youth and people looking for employment and housing.
