GDG in the community

At GDG, we strongly believe in corporate social responsibility. Businesses have a duty to support their communities and help keep them healthy.  Since 2007, GDG has been involved in social and environmental causes. Our commitment manifests itself in various ways, including concrete actions and community benefits.
