Hipoges embraces solidarity actions this festive season in Lisbon and Porto
Within the solidarity initiatives of Corporate Social Responsibility, Hipoges together with AMI carried out two solidarity actions, respectively in the Lisbon and Porto offices, with the aim of offering a food basket to families in need.
“We carried out a donation campaign to collect specific foods to include in families’ basic food baskets. In December, some volunteers from the Hipoges family went to the collection centres to deliver donations from the Lisbon and Porto offices”, – Hipoges Human Resources Department.
Within the current challenging context the country is experiencing, Hipoges could not oversee this and it was decided to donate the food left over from Winter Party Lisboa to the Refood organization, avoiding waste and promoting “generosity and solidarity with those who need it most”.
