Some of the service projects include:
- In Lake County, Illinois, U.S.A., AbbVie's headquarters, approximately 2,500 AbbVie volunteers will lead science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) initiatives for school-age children, renovate classrooms and meeting spaces of North Chicago Community High School, and build a new playground at A.J. Katzenmaier Academy. At Bernie's Book Bank, volunteers will sort and process 500,000 books for 75,000 students in the Chicagoland area.
- In Worcester, Massachusetts, U.S.A., AbbVie volunteers will transform the Science Lab at Worcester East Middle School, bringing new technology, books, lab materials and equipment to the 890 students, faculty and families the school serves.
- In San Jose, California, U.S.A., AbbVie and Pharmacyclics volunteers will build a playground in just six hours, to support the rapidly growing student body of Los Arboles Elementary School. Local children put crayon to paper to draw their dream playgrounds, and these concepts were used to design the brand-new play space.
- In Phoenix, Arizona; Los Angeles, California; Tampa, Florida; Atlanta, Georgia; Kansas City, Missouri; Brooklyn, New York; Dallas, Texas; Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; AbbVie's field-based teams will partner with Heart of America on additional educational renovation projects around the United States.
