Here at Credorax, giving back to society is one of our most important and fundamental values. Each year we encourage our employees to volunteer, donate and give back to the community.
This past year has been more challenging than ever for many underprivileged populations, specifically due to COVID-19 and lack of financial aid. Since we could not physically volunteer this year, we decided to bring the charity organizations to us. With this in mind, we took a break from our everyday activities and gathered online for a heartwarming event. We named it: CredoGive.
We asked our employees in Israel to propose nonprofit organizations and charities that are either close to their heart or that they volunteer for. The focus was: education, the elderly, fight against poverty and domestic violence. From the various suggested charities, we chose five that we thought would have the greatest impact on the communities that they serve in, and whose funds were severely affected during the pandemic.
During our CredoGive event, our employees Lea, Chen, Eran, Yoav and Tal each presented a voluntary organization that is close to their heart. They shared the inspiring stories of the people behind the charities and the communities they serve in.
The selected charities were:
Krembo Wings – a youth movement for children and youth with severe disabilities
Yad Ezer La-Haver – a home for Holocaust survivors.
Hillel – The Right to Choose – helping young adults who have left the ultra-orthodox world.
Tel Aviv Sexual Assault Crisis Center – emergency hotline for victims of sexual assault.
House of Wheels – activities for physically disabled children and young adults.
At the end of this inspiring event, our employees chose the organization they wished to donate to, and we were extremely proud to see such an exceptionally generous outpour. The amount collected from the employees was then matched by the company. The combined donations to all 5-nonprofit organizations reached approximately 250,000 NIS!!
For us, the important point was that by pulling together and listening to the special needs of different communities during these difficult times, our employees experienced a special bond and although we could not come together and meet in person with each association’s representatives, we still managed to hear and be touched by their stories.
