PIMCO begins worldwide volunteer week

About 900 employees with Pacific Investment Management Co., or PIMCO, are spending this week reading to children, restoring the Back Bay and serving meals at a soup kitchen as a part of the Newport Beach-based company's fourth annual Global Week of Volunteering.

The volunteers are also filling backpacks for children living in Orange County motels, teaching résumé writing and interviewing skills to U.S. veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, and reorganizing garages at a battered women's housing program, according to an announcement from the company.

Volunteers in Tokyo, Singapore, Toronto, Hong Kong, Sydney, Munich and London are expected to read to children who don't have access to books, prepare food at a soup kitchen and clean England's Thames River, the company said.

The company tweeted that more than 60 volunteers worked to restore Back Bay's habitats Sunday.

The company's employees are expected to participate in 64 charitable endeavors worldwide. PIMCO, based at Newport Center, is one of the nation's leading bond investors.
