“Súmate” Volunteering 2017

The 2017 volunteer day revolved around the embellishment, painting and adaptation of a school where 117 children study. The school is located in the Tenjo township, in Palmira (Valle), where the Forestry Division manages forest plantations. 1,500 m² were attended to,  by 219 volunteers, between employees of Smurfit Kappa, its Foundation, Colombates and relatives. We also had the support of students, parents and teachers from the neighbouring community. The collaborating organizations were the Sagrada Familia School of Potrerillo, Sodexo, Orbis, Transindustriales, The Red Cross and Image Arts.

Súmate Corporate Volunteering promotes the participation of SK employees in activities that have a positive impact on the communities where we work.
