Among all activities that fill Herald Suites Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) calendar, the annual Charity Feeding Outreach is the one employees look forward to. Organized by Herald Suites Management in coordination with the San Lorenzo Ruiz and Companion Martyrs Parish in Navotas City, headed by Fr. Franklin F. Beltran, OP. and the parish staff, the program feeds 200 children (between four to seven years old) from the nearby Dagat-Dagatan community. Interaction with the children through storytelling and games, as well as giving of care-bags, are always part of the program and items vary from toys, to clothes, shoes, slippers, and school supplies.
At the heart of this particular CSR outreach program is volunteerism and every Herald Suites employee volunteers to participate in this activity. Not only is it a learning and rewarding experience for them, it also engages them in responsible practices that will make them develop a wider sense of purpose—one that goes beyond a company’s bottom line.
