[EN] THE POWER OF GIVING BACK
This is how we, as a company, give back to our community:
- by getting involved,
- offering help and signing up as volunteers,
- and becoming ambassadors of a good cause.
Last Sunday, we got involved and became hosts of the 9th Fuss NEKI! fundraising and running event. This year, due to the Covid19 pandemic, the teams of the local NGOs had to choose separate locations for their running tracks. Knowing this challenge, Color Metal SRL offered the surrounding area of its new headquarter to the Odorheiu Secuiesc Community Foundation (SZKA – Székelyudvarhelyi Közösségi Alapítvány) during the run.
We gave a hand with our team of volunteers as well! Our colleagues at Color Metal were very enthusiastic to sign up as hosts and prepare for a smooth event. The most important part was to make sure that we were following the rules and regulations of the current situation and everybody was safe. The team was well prepared to provide a fun day for the ambassadors with an open-air photo exhibition, music, coffee, pizza sausages and the popular local donuts.
After all, we were joining forces for the project called Sustainable Future. As the Community Foundation wrote in their statement, the goal of the project was “twofold”. While they envisioned a sustainable future for the local community by activating as many people as possible for a cleaner environment and healthier lifestyle, they also aimed for establishing the sustainable future of the Foundation to support the community in the long run.
This was the cause that 5 of our colleagues supported, ran, and raised fund for. Together with the other 14 ambassadors, they completed the target distances and even doubled the target fund. It was a massive success! While the runners were cooling down, and the supporters were overwhelmed with joy, the atmosphere was lightened up by the sound of the playing kids, giving us the confirmation that we were present here on this sunny October afternoon to ensure their future.
