“At Hasbro, we believe the right to play is a fundamental human right," said Kathrin Belliveau, Hasbro’s Executive Vice President and Chief Purpose Officer. “Play has the power to create joy and connect communities around the world, a Purpose for Hasbro that inspires our teams every day. Giving back to our local and global communities has been core to our culture since Hasbro was founded in 1923. That’s why we are incredibly proud to be recognized as one of America's most community-minded companies through The Civic 50 for the 11th consecutive year. I want to thank our teams around the world whose work seeks to provide Access to Play to underserved communities, deliver Play Relief in times of crisis, and inspire the next generation of Play Makers.”
