Its aim is to collect food and money for the festive table (various long-term storage products, such as cereals, canned food, tea and coffee, as well as Easter table food – cheese and meat products, cakes, sweets, etc.) to help needy families celebrate Easter in comfort and coziness.
The event was organized by a charity fund “Caritas”. SoftServe employees in Lviv, Ivano-Frankivsk, Chernivtsi, Rivne, Kharkiv, and Dnipro have joined the initiative. With the support of our colleagues, we managed to collect more than 100 food packages for families in need, some workers supported the initiative financially; in total, UAH9000 has been used to support the event.
“SoftServe is a global company, so most of our CSR-initiatives take place not only in Ukraine but also in the foreign offices of the company” – says Ksenia Romanyuta, SoftServe CSR Manager. In particular, the idea of the Easter charity project was supported by our colleagues in Sofia. However, since this “Caritas” initiative wasn’t conducted in Bulgaria, employees have found a slightly different format for the event and organized charity breakfast together with UNICEF in their office. All collected funds will be used for the project aimed at integrating children with special needs into public kindergartens.
