Many companies are integrating Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs into their business. CSR initiatives are different for different companies. Stepping up the company’s community outreach activities is one worthwhile goal for 2021. It helps build trust, raise awareness, and encourage social change. W Group actively participates in CSR programs that help and build our local community. Employees are highly encouraged to join outreach projects that would help the people in the community especially now that we have the pandemic.
It is innate in every Filipino to help others as we believe that “nobody is so unfortunate that he has nothing to give.” Last December 29, 2020 and January 9, 2021, our employees from Philippine Bio-Industries plant facility had a donation drive in Bahay ni Maria, a non-government organization that takes care of the abandoned and neglected elderlies. The company budget intended for a Christmas party was allocated to purchase food and gift items for the elderlies of Bahay ni Maria. They also had a Blood-Letting Activity participated in by the employees of PBI last December 23, 2020. This was in partnership with the city office of Red Cross Philippines.
Our employees in Cebu Carrageenan Corporation plant facility also had a donation drive in their local community in time for Christmas. For the whole month of December, they were able to donate a total cash amount of ₱46,500 to the following communities and beneficiaries: Barangay Cantumog, Barangay Cantucong, Barangay Cantipay, Municipality of Carmen, and to the Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church.
