The #GivingTuesday Series: Celebrating Volunteerism at Caterpillar

In conjunction with #GivingTuesday and International Volunteer Day, we’re celebrating our employees who give back to their communities through volunteerism. #GivingTuesday, initially recognized in the United States on the first Tuesday in December, has become a global movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy throughout the year. International Volunteer Day, recognized on December 5, was established by the United Nations to recognize the work and the profound impact achieved by volunteers and volunteerism.

Meet Thomas Aguilar – Morton, Illinois

“Anytime I give back to the community, I always grow personally – as an individual, a leader, a spouse and a father – this work makes me a better person little by little.”
