HSBC Malta Foundation collaborates with schools and clients for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day

In yet another remarkable community-driven initiative, HSBC Malta Foundation has facilitated a significant donation drive in collaboration with one of its major customers, the HSBC staff members and four local schools. The initiative brought together resources and goodwill to support 21 local NGOs with various donations, just in time for the Mother’s Day and the upcoming Father’s Day celebrations.

The schools participating in this commendable effort included St Benedict College – Helen Keller Resource Centre, Laura Vicuna School in Għasri, Gozo, St Francis School in Victoria Gozo, and De La Salle College. Each institution played a pivotal role in gathering essential items to aid the community efforts spearheaded by the NGOs.

The NGOs benefiting from this drive are leaders in social change and support across Malta. The NGO’s who benefitted this time round were; Life Network Foundation Malta, S.T.A.N.D., Building Bridges, LOOP, Dar Bjorn, St Jean Antide Foundation, Dar il-Kaptan, YMCA, Fondazzjoni Suriet il-Bniedem, MCAST Student Support Services, Smiling with Jerome, Malta Trust Foundation, Fondazzjoni Dar il-Hena, RISe Foundation, FIDEM, Fondazzjoni Sebħ, Dar Hosea, Inspire, Foodbank Lifeline Foundation, Richmond Foundation and the Soup Kitchen in Valletta.

Each organisation received items that will directly assist in its ongoing projects and community assistance programs.

Glenn Bugeja, Head of Corporate Sustainability for HSBC Malta stated, “We are deeply honoured to facilitate this collaboration between our schools and partner NGOs. The generosity and spirit of community shown by our partners and participants are truly inspiring. It’s a privilege to support these organisations that do so much for our community, especially as we celebrate Mother’s Day and the upcoming Father’s Day.”

This event not only highlights the strong community ties in Malta but also underscores HSBC Malta Foundation’s commitment to fostering partnerships that create tangible benefits for society.
