NORWALK, Conn.--(Business Wire)--
Xerox (NYSE: XRX) announced today that five employees will take a fully-paid
leave of absence to volunteer for local non-profit organizations, engaging in
activities ranging from simplifying the business operations of a global
non-profit to making life a little easier for hospitalized veterans.
Xerox granted fully paid sabbaticals in 2013 to Joseph J. Bellmore and four
other Xerox employees to work for non-profits inside their communities. Joe will
work for the St. Joseph's food program in Menasha, Wis., and its CHAMP --
Community, Health, Activity, Motivation and Prevention - program, providing
services that will meet the nutrition and health needs of food program
participants. (Photo by Graham Washatka)

The paid leave is part of the company`s Social Service Leave program, known as
corporate America`s first community service sabbatical program that has loaned
more than 500 employees to non-profits since 1971. 

"An appreciation of our people as well as a commitment to serving the
communities where our people work and live are values deeply rooted in Xerox`s
culture," said Ursula Burns, Xerox chairman and chief executive officer.
"Xerox`s Social Service Leave program allows our employees to bring our business
process expertise to non-profit organizations in need. This program for years
has given Xerox people experiences that not only enrich them personally but also
professionally. They come back with renewed energy and spirit, and we all win." 

Selected by a group of their peers, the following 2013 Social Service Leave
recipients were chosen by a group of Xerox peers:

* Joseph J. Bellmore, Menasha, Wis., to St. Joseph Food Program. Bellmore will
promote self-sufficiency to food program recipients through a program called
CHAMP -- Community, Health, Activity, Motivation and Prevention. 
* Joseph G. Green, Millsboro, Del., to Weekend Warrior Program. Green will
establish a comprehensive donor list and develop a strategy and timetable for
the organization`s fundraising efforts. 
* J. Irene Hickey Houston, TX, to Rotary Club University Area Foundation. Hickey
will focus on providing low cost, fully furnished housing to firefighters
undergoing treatment for on-the-job injury or medical conditions. 
* John Lanphere, Webster, N.Y., to Save the Children. Lanphere will lead and
develop a continuous improvement process while training and mentoring the Save
the Children team to create a culture of continuous improvement. 
* Michael Muttera, Venice, Calif., to Venice Family Clinic. Muttera will
prioritize efforts to improve service delivery, create greater efficiency and
develop partnerships to obtain larger gains for the clinic and the communities
it services.
