-Total 1,000 Sacks of Rice Delivered to Groups and Households near Local Businesses Nationwide -Volunteers Wearing Santa Clause Outfits Provided Children with Gifts
As the Christmas and year-end season approaches, people are filled with hopes and expectations for the incoming New Year. The buoyant feelings, however, may cause you to forget about our neighbors in need. MOBIS employees have regularly volunteered at sisterhood welfare institutes each month. This month, they dressed up as Santa Claus to deliver rice and necessities to the less fortunate.
MOBIS is practicing the year-end social activities by distributing 1,000 sacks of rice to 79 groups and 129 households nationwide that the company sponsors.
On December 14, the employees at the headquarters dressed up as Santa Claus to visit households led by grandparents and the elderly living alone to deliver rice and necessities. In particular, they applied Santa Claus makeup to provide children with exciting and fun opportunities.
Employees at business sites nationwide visited households with a family member who had a car accident, low-income families and the elderly citizens living alone to deliver rice and daily necessities. Since most of such families live in areas such as on precipitous hills and narrow alleys that are difficult to be reached by car, the meaning of delivering a 20kg bag of rice will be significant for them.
Executive director Kim Hyun-ki who serves as the head of policy coordination department said, “I hope that the employees’ efforts to deliver rice to neighbors in need could contribute to helping those in need during winter’s coldest months. We will continue to make various social contribution activities that our employees can practice during the year-end season.”
Especially, these events served as special opportunities for new hires that lacked the opportunities to participate in social service activities to experience the joy of sharing. Ahn Jae-guk who volunteered in rice distributing activities said, “I am pleased to participate in this event to help those in need keep warm and healthy during this winter. It was meaningful for me to share the spirit of caring with the less privileged through this event.”
Director Kim Du-ho at the House of Ebenezer, a sisterhood group for rice support from MOBIS, delivered a message of gratitude, saying, “Families in need would gain strength from even small attention and interest from people. Our employees’ consistent and active social service and volunteer activities are contributed to advancing social welfare of the local region and disseminating the culture of sharing.
MOBIS has provided the less fortunate with various volunteer activities during the beginning and end of year and holiday seasons. Besides the rice sharing activities, the company provides various volunteer activities to practice the spirit of caring each year such as making Kimchi, “One to One” rural community support, bathing the disabled, cleaning and repairing facilities for the elderly living alone, study room support for children and blood donation campaigns.
