Atlas Insurance and its employees have once again taken the initiative to support the Foodbank Lifeline Foundation, which produces a meal a day for hundreds of families or individuals in need. This was done through two separate initiatives over the Christmas festive period.
TeamAtlas participated in the Reverse Advent Calendar campaign launched within the organisation, which aimed at collecting non-perishable food items in special collection boxes at Atlas’s head offices and its branches. Despite many employees working remotely, many staff members still donated their respective items which were delivered to the Foodbank Lifeline Foundation in January.
While working with restrictions related to COVID-19, two small groups of Atlas volunteers went on-site to help members from the Foundation pack the food items to be delivered to families or individuals in need.
“We are proud that our colleagues are always ready to come forward and lend a helping hand whenever we receive appeals for donations or voluntary work. As TeamAtlas, we are pleased to contribute to the welfare of our community and we will keep supporting such worthy causes, especially during this challenging period we are living through,” said Matthew von Brockdorff, Managing Director and CEO of Atlas Insurance.
The Foodbank Lifeline Foundation receives information from care professionals on families or individuals currently facing a short-term crisis. Volunteers then provide emergency food supplies once a day to these families.
