Quadpack Foundation gives back
The global reach of projects developed by the non-profit organisation proves that social action is in the heart of Quadpack’s commitment with its surrounding communities
2019 started as a promising year for Quadpack Foundation: while projects were gaining scope and showing results, the company’s growth imposed a challenge of developing philanthropy projects in even more countries. The non-profit organisation, established in 2016 went from Good to Great, ending the year with a record mark of 10 projects in 7 countries, all of them helping the social integration of vulnerable young people into society or enhancing environmental projects. Through education, arts, sports and nature, several ventures with positive impact have had more opportunities to thrive:
Associazione La Rondine, Italy
Quadpackers Annalisa Galletti y Alessandra Pirovano are the ambassadors to this project that welcomes a group of children from Chernobyl region to Italy every summer, when they could recover their immune system from the effects of radiation.
Atalanta Bergamasca Calcio S.p.A, Italy
Quadpack Foundation is an official partner of the youth sector and training school of Atalanta football team for the 2019-2020 season, as it believes in the social role of sports for education and integration.
Changing Young Lives Foundation, Hong Kong and China mainland
Two projects for disadvantaged children are funded by Quadpack Foundation. “Spring Blossom” offers subsidies for Dongxiang minority girls in China to help them continue their education and avoid early marriage. In Hong Kong, the “Discover” project promotes pre-school child development through sensory-motor training, cognitive and language learning and social exposure, as well as parent-child bonding activities.
Circus Starr, UK
While bringing joy to vulnerable children, Circus Starr helps to raise funds for local charities. The Foundation sponsored a performance of this project in Stoke-on-Trent, near Quadpack UK offices, where 40 children had the opportunity to have a joyous day.
Festival de Cinema de Muntanya de Torelló, Spain
For the first year, Quadpack Foundation is a premium sponsor of the film festival and will name the award for Best Mountain Culture Film, where art meets environmental awareness. Torelló is a neighbour town to Quadpack wood-shaping facilities in Catalonia.
Fundació Antiga Caixa Sabadell, Spain
Since 2016, Quadpack Foundation collaborates with Antiga Caixa Sabadell, a place dedicated to art, culture and education. This year, funding will allow public school students to visit Can Deu, a nature reserve that Quadpack Foundation helped to recover from a windstorm.
Fundación Impulsa, Spain
Founded by businesspeople from Osona region, where Quadpack has its wood-shaping factory, Fundación Impulsa helps youth to have access to higher educational levels. Quadpacker Jaume Ordeig is one of their mentors and the Foundation contributes with scholarships.
Primos Dallas, United States
Close to Quadpack’s US Distributor East Hill facilities in Dallas, Texas, this organisation assists disadvantaged youth through mentoring. Quadpack Foundation donation started as a support to Casandra Sanders, East Hill Senior Accountant and mentor in the project, and is now a successful partnership that resulted in several scholarships and internships in East Hill offices.
Special Children’s Event, Australia
Quadpack Foundation is a silver sponsor of a Christmas Party for special needs children and their families in Melbourne. For a day, they have celebrity stage shows, interactive games, face painting and many other fun activities, including a visit to Santa’s Toy Room. Quadpackers in Australia also attended the party.
Quadpack Foundation has bolder plans regarding 2020, with even more projects for the youth and environmental action, causing a positive impact in Quadpack communities and in the planet.
