July has been a fulfilling period for ESCO as we celebrated our 30th Anniversary this entire month. On top of our company cruise, partner promotions, and various internal events, ESCO also participated in our very meaningful CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), volunteering with Food from the Heart for their cause to alleviate hunger for the less-fortunate.
ESCO was given the opportunity to assist the non-profit organisation with their Community Food Pack Programme, which sees the collection of donated non-perishable food items, packs them into their iconic red bags, and distributes them to the 3,600 families monthly.
Our ESCO volunteers quickly filled the warehouse with our energy as we sorted the allocated food items onto wooden pallets for delivery. We also had a chance to pack the individual Food Packs which required careful arrangement of each item so as to minimise impact and maximise space during the delivery process.
Here are what some of us felt after the volunteering:
It was heartwarming to see so many people participated in volunteering work for the needy and I am glad to be part of it.
Raymond Kong, Manager, Sales Support
Thanks for organising this, such a fulfilling and meaningful act it was, I enjoyed the team work, thank you all.
Sujith Sivaram, Managing Director
It was without a doubt that I left the warehouse feeling more appreciative of the things I have in life and will not hesitate to volunteer again.
J.J Chew, Manager, Marketing
I am glad that I am able to volunteer for this and would like to thank the organisers for making this happen.
Yvonne Tang, Assistant Customer Support Manager
It is a good feeling to be able to volunteer with ESCO as a Team. I felt that I could do more for the society and will definitely continue volunteering myself.
Engineer, Hostile Vehicle Mitigation
It was such a great experience as I was able to bond with my colleagues while giving back to the community through the food packing programme.
Trish Nadhirah, Marketing Executive
I am humbled and happy to be part of this initiative and proud to be representing ESCO, an organisation that values social responsibility, inspiring the spirit of giving back to the community!
Hamka Roslan, AVP, Finance & Admin
I felt very satisfied and glad that my little effort could go a long way. I look forward to more volunteering activities for us to participate in together.
Penny Chia, AVP, Internal Audit
It can be hard to find time to volunteer with our busy lives, but from what I experienced, I understood that volunteering doesn’t have to involve a long-term commitment or take a huge amount of time.
With the right opportunity and company, volunteering can be made easy yet fulfilling and gives enormous benefits to the community as well as ourselves.
For me, it helps to take your mind off your own worries, keep you mentally stimulated and happy!
Shamira Nisamudin, Customer Support Manager
