2017 ended on a note of celebration and solidarity for the Societe Generale Foundation and its partners all over the world. Now, we look ahead to 2018, which promises to be just as full of initiatives.
For the Societe Generale Foundation and its partners, the end of 2017 was full of good cheer. All over the planet, large numbers of events were organized to mark the end of a year of solidarity.
In Paris, first, where a breakfast was held at the Val de Fontenay headquarters and the La Défense offices to celebrate the volunteering efforts of employees. In the afternoon, 80 volunteer employees organized an afternoon tea for the children of the charity ‘Apprentis d’Auteuil’, who came to enjoy the many events taking place. These included trying on virtual reality headsets, a face paint stand and sweets for one and all.
An end of year marked by solidarity for the Societe Generale Group
All over the world, events and initiatives were organized by volunteers throughout the end-of-year holidays.
In several US cities, including New York and Chicago, spaces were specially adapted to offer children a day of fun and games.
In Italy, the Rava Foundation, a local partner of the subsidiary, set up its Charity Market at the company’s traditional Christmas event in Milan and Turin.
In the UK, Austria, Spain, Luxembourg and Cameroon, from auction to selfie competitions, as well as donations of toys, distribution of presents and sports events, Societe Generale employees all contributed to bringing joy and solidarity to the end of 2017, all of them perfectly embodying the values of the Group in their own way.
Once again, thank you to all the partners, charitable organizations, and employees who have been working alongside us since 2006. The Societe Generale Foundation wishes you a very happy 2018, full of solidarity.
