C.H.A.R.G.E. Employee Volunteer Program


Lightning employees are passionate about giving back to the community we call home. Each year, under Mr. Vinik's leadership, all full time Lightning employees volunteer a minimum of a full week (40 hours) at non-profits throughout the Tampa Bay community.

In the past eight years, Lightning employees have completed over 45,000 hours of volunteer service at over 200 charitable organizations through the Lightning C.H.A.R.G.E. (Contributing Hours Across our Region through our Generous Employees) employee volunteer program.
