Employees of Globe and its affiliates volunteered to dedicate time and effort in creating 90 meal boxes for 2,880 families in Isabela and Albay who were affected by typhoon Tisoy which severely hit the country early December.
Each meal box consisted of 36 meal packs that are enough to feed 180 people.
The packs were to be distributed to 1,440 families or 7,200 individuals in Ilagan City, Isabela and 1,440 families or 7,200 individuals in Albay. Recipients for the remaining meal boxes are still to be announced.
The activity, which coincided with the celebration of International Volunteer Day, was participated in by over 300 employee-volunteers from Globe, Kickstart, Global Telehealth, Asticom Technology, Yondu, and Mynt.
Rise Against Hunger produced healthy food packs for calamity response and facilitated the packing activity to enable large groups of volunteers to take part in relief operations.
“Globe has a very engaged employee workforce that is always ready to help communities in times of disaster. We are extremely grateful to our employees across the Globe Group for their generosity,” said Yoly Crisanto, Globe Chief Sustainability Officer and SVP for Corporate Communications.
Globe is at the forefront of espousing employee engagement by providing more opportunities for them to live out the company’s service principles and create a culture of social responsibility. These, in turn, motivate employees to be better at work and to create a positive change in the communities.
Aside from providing meals for the calamity victims, Globe has also set up Libreng Tawag and Charging stations in the provinces of Samar, Mindoro, Sorsogon, Quezon, Camarines Sur, Albay, Romblon, and Tuguegarao City to assist in their communication needs.
Globe Telecom has undertaken several charitable actions, among them, an initiative for underprivileged youth, a partnership with Hineleban Foundation for a rainforestation project in Bukidnon, and with Dep-Ed for a Digital Thumbprint Program to keep schoolchildren safe from online sexual exposure.
