SupportSave believes in giving back to the community in every way possible. We have a long-standing commitment to corporate social responsibility, built on a strong foundation of compassion and ethics.
The aim of our corporate social responsibility initiative is to improve the quality of life for the underprivileged people around us. We focus on two major areas:
As the old saying goes - charity begins at home, we too began our corporate social responsibility initiatives from Cebu, where we operate. For the past few years, we have been supporting a number of Cebu-based charities with our corporate initiatives, employee volunteer efforts, as well as monetary donations. And we are thankful to our employees who took part in our social responsibility programs and proved themselves as caring and compassionate human beings.
Here are a few details of our corporate social responsibility initiatives:
Through SupportSave’s corporate giving program, donations and outreach activities are provided to non-profit and non-religious organizations whose work revolves around child health and welfare, and education.
Some of our initiatives include feeding-projects in association with various government agencies focusing on homeless people. In recent past, SupportSave carried outreach projects focused on providing families in the poorest areas of Cebu province with food. Officials from various towns and municipalities as well as our volunteer-employees helped us in the successful execution of the project. We also provide educational material to schools and offer continuous support to orphanages on a regular basis.
Thanks to our caring and compassionate employees SupportSave runs a successful employee giving program, where internal employees can make material donations through scheduled payroll deductions and donating projects during Christmas.
SupportSave started its own tradition of granting Christmas wishes of Cebu’s less-fortunate children. Every Christmas, SupportSave visits different orphanages and shelters for abused women and children and asks each child there for their Christmas wish. Every Christmas each SupportSave employee gets the opportunity to grant the wish of a less-fortunate child (requests are usually for toys, clothes, food, and medicine). Since SupportSave collects hundreds of such wishes, the ones our employees don’t pick are taken care of by the corporate-giving division.
SupportSave contributes generously to disaster relief programs through financial assistance. SupportSave set up disaster relief programs and provided aid towards the recent earthquake in Haiti and Typhoon Ondoy (Ketsana), the worst tropical depression that ever hit the Philippines.
Our employees generously contributed towards relief efforts in Haiti through American Red Cross. Supporting relief efforts in Manila, SupportSave provided food, clothes and first aid to 300 families in affected areas.
