“It is very important for us as a corporate organization to engage in CSR programs such as this as a way of elevating and identifying with the communities around us,” Mr. Adewale, a member of the Bloomberg team stated at the outreach which took place at the Lagos Food Bank Initiative’s warehouse, on Saturday 7th of October, 2023. Partnering with Bloomberg, the food bank reached its beneficiaries with food relief items and personal care materials through its Temporary Food Aid Program (TEFAP).
The Executive Director of the food bank, Dr. Michael Sunbola appreciated everyone in attendance including the partner of the day and encouraged more corporate bodies to engage in more CSR ventures as an important means of helping and developing our immediate communities.
The Bloomberg team excitedly participated in the day’s activities alongside the food bank volunteers actively engaging with the sorting, packing and distribution of the boxes. The team also expressed their gratitude to the food bank team for a well coordinated outreach program and for the wonderful opportunity to execute a successful corporate social responsibility engagement.
The outreach was highly impactful as the beneficiaries expressed their gratitude upon receiving their boxes of hope and clothing relief through the Cloth Banking Nigeria program.
