At a dedicated ceremony in October, SPAR Guangdong partner Jiarong presented gift bags with a total value of 1.912 million yuan (more than €266,000), containing snacks, noodles, a toothbrush set, and beverages. The Dongguan Charity Association donated vouchers with a total value of 3 million yuan, or 75 yuan per voucher. The gift bags and vouchers, which can be used in any SPAR Guangdong store, have been distributed among Dongguan’s sanitation workers.
“We hope to work with partners from all walks of life to help improve the working and living conditions of sanitation workers. This way more sanitation workers can receive care and benefits, ultimately making the city a better place”, said Mr Liang Zhonghua, SPAR Guangdong Vice President.
SPAR Guangdong Jiarong is committed to supporting public welfare causes and actively participating in different public welfare activities such as donating to schools, ecological protection, assisting disaster-stricken areas, and caring for disadvantaged groups. The Dongguan Charity Association ‘Caring for Sanitation Project’ has been implemented for four consecutive years. This is the fourth year SPAR Guangdong has participated.
