As part of its community outreach, 3M, a multinational conglomerate, has recently rolled out an initiative by engaging its employees in the donation of hygiene items to underprivileged people of the society.
The initiative, which is aligned with the spirit of sharing, caring and giving back to the community, has witnessed strong response from all 3M employees who placed their donations into charity boxes which the company had distributed within the company. Filled with essential hygiene and personal care items, the boxes were handed over to the UAE’s Red Crescent to be distributed on people in need including workers in labor camps.
“Since the establishment of the Red Crescent branch in Dubai, our goal has been to promote the spirit of solidarity and compassion among the various members of the community,” said Mohammad Abdullah Al Haj Al Zarouni, General Manager of the Dubai branch of Emirates Red Crescent. “Thanks to the assistance of the philanthropists and corporate giants, we have always been able to reach out to the people in need and offer them the support they need,” he added.
“Giving employees an opportunity to give back to the community is highly important to morale and build a collaborative and inspired team,” said George Barmakian, Strategic Planning & Commercial Excellence Manager at 3M Gulf. “We are an innovation company with solutions that constantly improve every aspect of people’s lives. It is our pleasure to extend our outreach to serve and give back to those segments of the society which are underprivileged. We thank the Red Crescent organization for making this initiative a success and we look forward to further enhance our collaboration with them in the near future,” he added.
