P&A Grant Thornton joined Grant Thornton offices in 78 countries to highlight their on-going year-long community involvement through their annual global corporate social responsibility (CSR) event, ‘Growing Together in the Community'.
P&A Grant Thornton’s Davao branch volunteers, along with third grade students from the Malagos Elementary school, spearhead the “P&Aglaum sa Kinaiyahan”, a program committed to planting trees at the Malagos Watershed Reservation.
Grant Thornton people around the world have been helping communities grow since 2014 as part of their global CSR strategy. It is their promise to others to Act, Commit and Share by giving back to the local communities wherever Grant Thornton people may work.
This global programme is bringing real change to others through positive actions and impact to people, clients and the community. Grant Thornton teams around the world have transformed so many lives through local and national programmes.
“P&A Grant Thornton is committed to unlocking the potential for growth in our clients, our people and in our communities,” said Jun Cuaresma – P&A Grant Thornton CSR Champion. “And while we are active in our communities throughout the year, we conducted four simultaneous CSR activities in Makati, Cavite, Cebu and Davao”.
In Makati, P&A Grant Thornton volunteers launched Project Nutri-P&Ack in partnership with International Care Ministries and Rise Against Hunger for a meal-packaging event for its sponsored ultra-poor community in Jaclupan, Talisay, Cebu.
Volunteers from P&A Grant Thornton’s Cavite, Cebu and Davao offices also launched their respective CSR projects focusing on assistance to hospital patients, outreach to an orphan home and wildlife conservation, respectively.
