Participation in Month of Service activities is not mandatory; however, employees who volunteer can earn up to $250 for donation to the charity served through the “Dollars for Doer’s” program. In addition, employees who are making a difference in their communities through volunteerism, fundraising or nonprofit board service also can nominate a charity to receive up to $3,000 through Medline’s Employee Recognition Program.

The Month of Service is part of Medline’s Community Impact program, which works to address social determinants of health in the communities where employees live and work. The company’s Medline Service Corps volunteers their time and talents to advance health equity locally and abroad, and the company’s Medline CARES (Community, Action, Resources, Education and Solutions) program invests human and financial resources in markets where Medline has a presence. In 2021, 950 Service Corps members and 1,327 unique employee volunteers provided more than 6,800 volunteer hours valued at $205,127, and made donations totaling $81,270.
