August 12, Saturday — The Eastvantage team visited the NORFIL Foundation in Quezon City to hold the company’s annual Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) event, to benefit children, youth, women and families in need. On its second year running, this event is the culmination of Eastvantage’s month-long effort to raise funds and collect donations for NORFIL-sponsored foster kids and their families.
For the entire month of July, Eastvantage held the Care Fair where associates held various activities within the workplace including public performances, mobile game tournaments, and even Korean (Hangul) tutorials to raise funds for the NORFIL visit. Eastvantage also opened its doors last August 1 to all Fort Legend Tower tenants to partake in the main Care Fair event which included a food bazaar, garage sale, mini-concert, and Bingo sessions. The events held invited the participation of everyone in the Eastvantage organization and were a very personal way for all associates to contribute to the cause.
Eastvantage associates in 2017 have managed to surpass the amount raised from the previous year from these efforts. The funds and goods raised were used to give to the kids and their foster parents donations of groceries, school supplies, toys, and health supplements, in addition to the program held especially for them on August 12.
The visit to NORFIL was filled with fun games, togetherness, and goodwill. Eastvantage co-founder Joeri Timp gave a short message and monetary donation to the foundation as received by NORFIL’s Executive Director Teresa Nuqui responded with a message of appreciation.
NORFIL Foundation is a Norwegian-Filipino organization championing the cause and welfare of children, youth, women, and families in need. For more information, visit www.norfil.org.
