Around 100 employees from Torre Picasso and Spínola took part in this initiative, part of the Citizen Commitment Time 2015 program, that collected the amount of 1.100€.
The employees have ordered 80 covers for the tablets that the youngsters will do during the summer. Societe Generale decided to subsidize 20€ of each cover, so the bank will collaborate with the amount of 1.600€.
All the items are made by the guys in their leather goods workshop, called Puntadas Solidarias in Association Nuevo Horizonte. The bank supports this initiative, that aims to offer professional training to young people with autism, allocating the whole amount collected during 2015 and 2016 to this project.
12 employees and their relatives joined 15 youngsters with autism to go to the play La Corte del Faraón in the Victoria Theatre.
This is the first volunteering and inclusion activity that took place with the association Nuevo Horizonte withinthe Citizen Commitment Time framework. The goal of the activity consisted in sharing a fun and musical afternoon with the guys.
The experience was very positive for all the attendees; they enjoyed a good play and a fun afternoon.
Isabel Muñoz told us: “I had the pleasure of attending the play, in the Victoria Theatre, with fantastic music and two angels that were very polite and funny. As always, the bank has done a great job that benefits us all. With no doubt I will do it again”
