For several years, Medtronic, a global leader in technology, solutions and medical services, came to our foundation to leave its social footprint, through its volunteer angels and donors. This time we have received several groups at the headquarters of the “Santa Rita de Cascia” children’s home and the “Maria es mi Madre” food bank for grandparents.
Laura Ortega, a young volunteer who has been working at Medtronic for 4 months, informed us how this initiative allows the members of the company to support projects with the sole purpose of serving the most vulnerable communities. “Accompanying the children of this home and being able to provide them with a different experience today is very rewarding and enriching, they are happy with so few things and with simple and nice activities like reading them a story. Our heart is filled with joy.
Medtronic carries out this type of activities four times a year and opens the doors of solidarity to each of its members since they can choose where they want to go and the way they want to help, with their time, donations, etc. This space provided to share with children and grandparents not only serves as motivation and inspiration for them, but also brightens the lives of each of our beneficiaries.”
