Over €700,000 do­nated more than 1,100 pledge calls

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

For the third con­sec­u­tive year, MITA vol­un­teers teamed up with Put­tinu Cares for the Good Fri­day Xara­bank pro­gramme.

This year’s ef­fort was fo­cused on the pledg­ing sys­tem and the sub­se­quent lo­gis­tics to co­or­di­nate the col­lec­tion of do­na­tions. Over 40 MITA vol­un­teers took part in the vol­un­teer­ing as­sign­ment, tak­ing tele­phone calls from con­trib­u­tors dur­ing the 4 hour Xara­bank pro­gramme.

With great sat­is­fac­tion, the call cen­tre func­tion op­er­ated by MITA vol­un­teers han­dled over 1,100 calls from the gen­eral pub­lic and com­pa­nies who col­lec­tively do­nated over €700,000 through the pledg­ing sys­tem. This was a chal­leng­ing and pleas­ant as­sign­ment.

Fur­ther­more, MITA vol­un­teers un­der­took the lo­gis­ti­cal co­or­di­na­tion of do­na­tion col­lec­tions which was car­ried out overnight to en­sure an or­gan­ised col­lec­tion process on Satur­day morn­ing by Put­tinu Vol­un­teers. A to­tal of 650 col­lec­tions were sched­uled and suc­cess­fully col­lected on Satur­day.

The Chair­per­son of the MITA Cares Com­mit­tee, Wayne Valen­tine who was tasked to han­dle this ini­tia­tive re­marked: “It has been an­other suc­cess­ful as­sign­ment with Put­tinu Cares whereby MITA Cares has once again demon­strated strong com­mit­ment through the tan­gi­ble and pro­fes­sional sup­port of our em­ploy­ees. This is an­other tes­ti­mo­nial of MITA’s Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity to­wards sup­port­ing our Com­mu­ni­ties. We look for­ward for our next as­sign­ment!”
