Vas­sallo Group helps out at Dar tal-Kleru as part of CSR ini­tia­tive

The Malta Business Weekly - - NEWS -

De­spite the ad­verse weather con­di­tions, a good num­ber of em­ploy­ees from dif­fer­ent com­pa­nies within Vas­sallo Group par­tic­i­pated in the yearly tra­di­tional Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity event which was held at Dar tal-Kleru on Satur­day, 13 Oc­to­ber, a re­tire­ment and care home for priests. This home has been in oper­a­tion for over 50 years and cur­rently cares for around 50 res­i­dents.

Ev­ery year Vas­sallo Group chooses to help out an or­gan­i­sa­tion by sup­port­ing a par­tic­u­lar project. This year the Group de­cided to sup­port this wor­thy project in ap­pre­ci­a­tion to the years of ser­vice pro­vided to the com­mu­nity by those who are now re­sid­ing there.

Em­ploy­ees were di­vided into three main groups to help with jobs in con­struc­tion, kitchen and clean­ing. Con­struc­tion jobs in­cluded the fix­ing of con­crete slabs, al­ter­ations and gyp­sum work in var­i­ous rooms as well as paint­ing of rooms and doors.

A num­ber of em­ploy­ees were as­signed kitchen du­ties, in ad­di­tion to a CaterEssence chef who took care of the pro­duc­tion of Mal­tese krus­tini for all the priests, staff and vol­un­teers. The rest of the team took care of the dis­posal of un­wanted goods and clean­ing of the premises.

On the same oc­ca­sion a se­nior man­ager from CareMalta, Paul Pace, pro­vided a train­ing ses­sion in Customer Care to the res­i­dence’s mem­bers of staff.

Group chair­man Naz­zareno Vas­sallo was present for the en­tire morn­ing, sup­port­ing this event and show­ing his ap­pre­ci­a­tion to each and ev­ery vol­un­teer. CaterEssence also pro­vided a va­ri­ety of food items to all par­tic­i­pants.
