Amalgamated Beverage Industries CCBSA’s Employee Volunteer Programme (EVP) is once again in full swing. The first of the EVP’s for the month of February will commence 5 February 2015 in CCBSA South Region territory, focusing on a Child Welfare Centre in Kagiso. This centre has been in operation for the past 67 years. Their main objectives are to promote the wellbeing, protection and healthy development of vulnerable children, their families and the rest of the community.
Employee Volunteerism is a companywide Corporate Social Investment (CSI) initiative; all CCBSA’s regions will be taking part in various activities during February 2015 with the objective to make a meaningful contribution in the communities where CCBSA operate. A total of 80 CCBSA employees will be assisting in the various renovation, repair, maintenance and gardening activities, which are planned for the day at the Child Welfare Centre in Kagiso
As a company CCBSA has witnessed the difference its Employees have made over their years since the launch of the programme. The company invests in the region of R5 million annually in its Employee Volunteerism Programme. In 2014 alone, over 1 677 Employees participated in 20 Employee Volunteer days.
“At CCBSA we have living case studies of how Employee Volunteerism has boosted the morale of our Employees. By volunteering their time they are directly and indirectly making a meaningful contribution to the communities where CCBSA has a presence,” says Director of Corporate Affairs, Tshidi Ramogase.
Child Welfare Kagiso has become the lifeline for the community and CCBSA is honoured to be able to partner with them and contribute to the longevity of the centre for years to come. Our Employees in the region will be focusing on the following activities, tasks and interventions.
