Doing Good in the Neighborhood
Editor’s note: Johnson & Johnson has more than 128,000 employees around the world. Throughout 2014, we’re going to bring you their unique stories. Whether they are employees who work with a nonprofit, mentor children, or simply volunteer at their local soup kitchen, we want to show that small acts of kindness can make big changes in the world we live in. These stories have inspired us, and we hope they’ll inspire you, too.
“Those who can lead have an obligation to do so, in the realm of citizenship…” General Robert Wood Johnson, 1949
Position/J&J Company: Program Manager, J&J WHQ
Oscar Morera, Program Manager at Johnson & Johnson Headquarters, volunteers with The Bridge to Employment and Rutgers ODASIS programs to help students who come from low socially economic environments and inspire them to work hard, go on to college, and then a professional school or career. “I hope that I can relay to them the importance of an education and how they can break the cycle and become successful. I want to help students believe in themselves, so that they will rise and become successful members of the community and one day also give back to others.”
