CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY (CSR) ACTIVITIES
For the past four (4) years, Clark Electric Distribution Corporation (CEDC) and its employees have been consistently donating to the Home of Eucharistic Love and Kindness orphanage located in Calibutbut, Bacolor. The donations helped fund the cost of school supplies and food expenses needed by these student orphans to be able to kickstart a successful school year.
In July 2016, CEDC with One Meralco Foundation through its Makabayan Volunteerism – Spread the Light program provided various school supplies, books, IT hardwares and equipment, and other teaching materials to Enrica Sandico Elementary School in Angeles City.
One Meralco Foundation is determined to bring the light of hope to underserved communities within and beyond the Meralco franchise area, carrying out CEDC’s dream to make the future brighter for the Filipino people.
In 2016, CEDC employees had another opportunity to get personally involved and contribute to a meaningful social change in the environment through the organization’s tree planting activity at Bacolor, Pampanga. 95% of CEDC’s manpower complement volunteered in the activity which was in support of the National Greening program of DENR.
A good CSR program does not necessarily require significant budget but it does require commitment from top management and employees and a strategy to create shared value for CEDC’s organization and the society.
