Creditinfo Estonia volunteered for Toidupank food bank in November by donating 76 hours of work in total
25. Nov 2020
Creditinfo Estonia focused in November into our Social Responsibility Manifesto – an extra day off to be socially responsible and volunteer by contributing to a good cause that is important to a local community.
In Estonia November is considered as very dark, rainy, grey and wistful month of a year. But we decided that there has to be more, and taking into mind Dorothy Day’s apothegm – “Food for the body is not enough. There must be food for the soul” we decided to provide our help into Estonian Food Bank.
COVID situation has raised the amount of people, who need help for daily coping. EU has provided food help and this food must be packed into boxes to be shared. By helping those in need and less privileged with “ food for body” was for Creditinfo employees “food for the soul”.
Creditinfo Estonia, taking into account the situation with virus spread, had 4 separate teams working in Food Bank in Tallinn and Tartu cities. Our contribution was 73 hours, eg 8 working days. We were very welcome by Food Bank coordinators- it was explained us how this organizations works and their moto- the food bank delivers food from where there is a surplus to where there is a shortage, no food waste.
Also how it is possible to get the help and cooperation with municipal social departments. In Tallinn we had a real nice surprise- Food Bank offered to our team a lunch- what a great reception. For work Food Bank offered us aprons, cloves and off-course we had masks to protect us. It was real fun to be outside form our daily duties and to know, that there is someone, weather it is a family, lonely elderly person, who had a chance to fill dinner table.
