Serve the City has long experience of working with companies and organisations delivering corporate volunteering where your team spends the day (half day) helping the vulnerable in our society.
This can be on practical or social projects where your drive, knowledge and expertise can make a difference to people’s lives.
Volunteer in a home for vulnerable people, spending time with the Elderly and Children, playing games, helping with learning, running a beauty session and being socially engaged.
Volunteer in a centre for abuse victims, doing practical tasks such as fixing, cleaning and painting so that the centre becomes a more positive environment to live in.
Making sandwiches together as a team; then giving the sandwiches, plus fruit and water to the homeless on the streets, whilst at the same time engaging the homeless as human beings, by talking to them, listening to their stories and knowing them by name.
Making care packages full of essentials, such as tinned food, fruit, clothing and washing materials and delivering the packages direct to the homeless or to centres for the vulnerable.
Our organisation is starting a campaign on poverty, therefore we thought it important that our teambuilding activity is related to this issue and gives us very practical insight in the needs of the local community our organisation is based in. And what better place to do that than at SIA. We served soup, did a little cleaning up, and met people we would never have met otherwise. Serve the City could not have chosen a more suitable project for us, thank you!
When we contacted Serve the City in Brussels for our team building and global community day activities, we wanted something dynamic, and that’s what we got! We dived straight into our activities: gardening at the Little Sisters of the Poor, and lot’s and lot’s of painting at Nativitas and CARIA. It was fun, we bonded, and it was an opportunity to give something back to the people who do so much for our community.
For the last few years our colleagues have enjoyed deep and meaningful experiences in the community, thanks to Serve the City’s help during our month of corporate volunteering in September. We are so grateful!
