In order to bring the people of our company closer to the communities and the environment, we promote Corporate Volunteering initiatives in the different points of origin where we produce.
In Argentina, the associates voluntarily participate in Sustainability Committees where they may channel their concerns and propose projects related to the core issues of environmental management and social responsibility of the company.
The associates organize donation collections on Children's Day, Christmas and in natural catastrophe situations that require the cooperation of all the living forces of the local areas. We promote volunteering days such as building activities, and Reading Days, along with Fundación Minka in Tucumán and with kindergartens Santa Clara and San Pablo in Buenos Aires.
Meanwhile, in South Africa, we organize donation campaigns with NGO Love Story, from the Port Elizabeth community. Thus, we collect clothes, toys, school supplies and coats to meet the needs of the children of the community. Along the same lines, we manage a food campaign and support the community Soup Kitchen Project. At the same time, in partnership with Fundación Santa’s Shoebox Project, we participate in the donation of toys, where volunteers prepare and decorate the Christmas boxes according to the age and interest of children. We have completed 16 boxes in total for 16 children in South Africa and Namibia.
San Miguel encourages teamwork and the coordination with third sector organizations. Because we believe that helping the different communities where we are present is the best way to build a future where everybody may have a better life.
