SupportSave is committed to improving the quality of life and enhancing the vitality of unprivileged communities in which we operate. Caring@supportsave, our corporate social responsibility initiative focuses on two major areas: Child Health and Welfare, and Education for future competitiveness and sustainability. SupportSave has been supporting various Cebu-based charities for the past few years through corporate initiatives, employee volunteer efforts, and monetary donations. Part of our goal is to also give our employees the opportunity to be compassionate and caring members of the community, in hope that beyond SupportSave programs, they will carry on the noble work. Through our Community Outreach Programs, we provide support to causes reflecting employee and community interests.
Corporate Giving Program
SupportSave’s corporate giving program is committed to improving the quality of life of unprivileged sections of the society, especially in Cebu where we operate. Through our program, donations and outreach activities are given to non-profit and non-religious organizations with an emphasis on Child Health and Welfare and Education. These programs are supported on a corporate level and represent the company as a whole.
Some of these programs include feeding-projects in association with various government agencies focusing on homeless people. Recently, with the help of volunteer-employees and officials from various towns and municipalities, SupportSave carried outreach projects focused on giving food to families in the poorest areas of Cebu province. Likewise we provided educational material to schools and consistently offer continuous support to orphanages.
Employee Giving Program
Through our employee giving program, internal employees have the ability to make material donations through scheduled payroll deductions and donating projects during Christmas.
In lieu of the Christmas tradition of exchanging gifts, SupportSave started its own tradition of granting Christmas wishes of Cebu’s less-fortunate children. Every Christmas, SupportSave knocks on the door of orphanages and shelters for abused women and children and ask each child for their Christmas wish. Each SupportSave employee has the opportunity to grant the wish of a child (requests are usually for toys, clothes, food, and medicine). Subsequently during the company’s Christmas party, we share stories of the children they gave happiness to during this Christmas. Since SupportSave collects hundreds of such wishes, the ones our employees don’t pick are taken care of by the corporate-giving division.
Disaster Relief Program
As a responsible corporate citizen we are committed to participating and contributing towards disaster relief efforts. SupportSave is devoted to contributing to our communities through direct financial assistance. We believe giving directly to the community is not only socially responsible, but also helps our organization by supporting and building the environment in which we do business.
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. Supporting relief efforts in Haiti our employees generously contributed through American Red Cross. Supporting relief efforts in Manila, SupportSave provided food, clothes and first aid to 300 families in affected areas.
