José de Mello Group Volunteer Day

Supporting the cause of the “Semear” program, aimed at the social integration of people with disabilities, was the motto for yet another highly participatory volunteer action.

Over 130 people, including several Bondalti employees, 2800 plants that found new space to grow, and 2.5 tons of vegetables harvested. These are some of the numbers from another José de Mello Group Volunteer Day, held in Oeiras, which demonstrate the vitality of this annual initiative.

This year's edition aimed to support the “Semear” program, which aims to promote the integration of people with disabilities, through professional training and adequate personal and social development. To this end, one of the aspects of the project is the cultivation and sale of organic agricultural products, whose revenues revert to this cause.

Promoted with the support of the Amélia de Mello Foundation, the José de Mello Group Volunteer Program is a cross-cutting initiative common to all participating companies and is addressed to the Group's approximately 13,000 employees. The objective is to pursue the commitment to develop socially responsible business in the present and in the future.
