Due to the current situation Vassallo Group this year will be doing away with all the traditional social activities which are usually held in the month of December. Instead it has decided to donate part of the money allocated for such events to the Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation.
For this reason, Vassallo Group Chairman Nazzareno Vassallo accompanied by Group CEO Pio Vassallo and Group director Charlo Bonnici presented this donation to His Excellency the President of Malta Dr George Vella who received it on behalf of the Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation.
A donation was made in representation of the Annual Chairman’s Lunch along with another for the Annual Christmas party which is usually held for all Vassallo Group employees.
Furthermore, the Group has decided to commit itself to a monthly donation of €2000 to be paid as from 1st January 2021 on behalf of its employees as part of the Employee Contribution Scheme launched by the Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation
This comes in addition to the monthly contribution of €1,000 paid every month by the Group as from 1st January 2021 to the Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation for the duration of Dr Vella’s presidency in support of President Vella’s initiative focusing on the mental health sector.
During the same presentation Mr Vassallo handed to the President a cheque with the proceeds of a Dress Down Day organised by the Group’s HR department during the month of October which this year will also go to the Foundation.
In the past years the Foundation has helped hundreds of individuals, from all levels of society, young and old, but particularly the most needy. Unfortunately the Foundation itself has suffered a set back due to the current situation and had to call off major events aimed at boosting its coffers which would have allowed it to help more people.
