SERVATHON 2020: Volunteering in times of Covid-19
On Saturday, October 24, 2020, 10 companies and over 165 volunteers will participate virtually in SERVATHON’s culminating event and interactive talk organized by Hands on Manila Foundation, Inc.
With the theme “COVID-19 Sustainable Food Security,” this year’s SERVATHON lets a company donate a grant for public school gardens, which will produce nutritious vegetables to sustain food security and livelihood for communities. The corporate volunteers will paint plant labels, recycled bottles or pots from the safety of their homes. They can use these items, or they may turn them over to HOM for distribution to the partner public school gardens: Timoteo Paez Elementary School in Pasay City, Camp Claudio Elementary School in Paranaque City, Dr. Alejandro Albert Elementary School in Sampaloc, Manila, Silangan Elementary School in Silangan, Taguig City.
Hands on Manila is the leading non-profit organization working to promote volunteerism in the Philippines. It is the first international affiliate of Hands on Network USA (now known as Points of Light Foundation), the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service. It is also accredited by the Philippine Council for NGO Certification (PCNC).
The companies participating in SERVATHON 2020 are American Express – Women’s Interest Network (WIN) Manila, BPI Foundation, EON, Far Eastern University, ICTSI Foundation, Northern Trust, Rockwell Land, True Value, W Energy Global, and Zendesk.
