Hestia has been part of Give & Gain for the first time

Posted: Wednesday 12 July 17, 10.31am GMT

Hestia has been a member of the CSR360 Global Partner Network for many years but this was the first time they were a part of Give & Gain organising employee volunteering opportunities for their corporate partners over two months in the Czech Republic.

They are using this opportunity to share with you the activities that happened in their Employee Volunteer Programs during April 2017. This was a particularly busy time in which many great employee volunteering activities happened.

In April, Hestia had a total of 241 employee volunteers from 8 corporate organisations from 18 non-profit partner organizations take part in a range of activities. The companies involved were Vodafone, T-Mobile, Volkswagen Financial Services, IKEA Česká republika, 3M Česko, DSV Road, Atradius Crédito y Caución S.A. de Seguros y Reaseguros and Society of Corporate Compliance & Ethics.

IKEA Česká republika
IKEA’s volunteers helped two non-profit organizations – Children’s sanatorium Olivova léčebna and in the Centre for free-time activities for children Jahoda. The volunteers spent two days in the organizations while helping to renovate selected rooms – a playroom for the patients in Olivova léčebna and a common room in a former Portakabin that will serve for providing field social services in the centre Jahoda.

Volkswagen Financial Services
Hestia’s new corporate partner, Volkswagen Financial Services, had 4 groups of volunteers helping in April. The activities were organised in collaboration with 4 different organizations that focus on children, disability and the protection of the environment. Among other activities, they helped with garden work and organized a barbecue in a Home for visually impaired Palata, helped with the reparation of paddocks in the non-profit equestrian club JK Počin, o.s. and cleaned the tracks in the stadium Stadion mládeže.

We are really impressed with the activities organised by Hestia during the month of April, and we are convinced they will continue to do great things in the upcoming months.
