        Team Member Volunteering / Paid Volunteer Day

        In 2017 QVC US—following the lead of programs administered by QVC Italy and zulily—rolled out a Paid Volunteer Day benefit.
        To further our relationships with the local community and foster team member engagement, we encouraged our people to utilize
        their skills and tap into their passions through a full day of volunteering—while still receiving a day’s pay.

        Team members volunteered at local hospitals, charitable walks, food banks, and animal shelters. Through programs like Paid
        Volunteer Day, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and other community initiatives, QVC, QVC International, and zulily team members
        volunteered over 7,000 hours in 2017.

        Group Volunteering Spotlight: QVC US Program Host Team Volunteers at Local Food Bank

        In honor of National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week in November, 23 members of the Program Host team visited the
        Chester County (PA) Food Bank to organize, sort, and send out hundreds of pounds of food for community members in need.

        Over two days the team spent 12 hours sorting through boxes of canned and fresh food, including 375 pounds’ worth that were
        donated by QVC West Chester team members. “When you get involved with volunteering, it’s for other people, someone you’ve
        never met,” observed QVC Program Host Mary DeAngelis. “It feels good in a way unlike any other.”
