GMV and its employees donate 50,000 euros to the Food Bank

The COVID-19 pandemic means that many employee events now have to be held online, often including some of sort of charitable money-raising initiative. Such was the case of GMV’s traditional Christmas get-together, also organized online and ending up with a charitable toast.

Mindful of the economic slump and food shortages caused by the pandemic, GMV’s employees decided to donate the proceeds of their "charitable toast" to the Food Bank. This sum of €35,860 was topped up to €50,000 by the firm itself, as announced by GMV President Mónica Martínez during the event.

The Food Bank is one of the humanitarian organizations that are redoubling their efforts at the moment to deal with an avalanche of requests for food and basic necessities to fend off the healthcare, economic and social crisis unleashed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

This charitable gesture by GMV brings out the company’s cultural and corporate values, large amongst which loom generosity, fellow feeling, cooperation and commitment. What more natural, therefore, than to support the Food Bank’s humanitarian labors? This is only one outstanding example, moreover, of GMV’s charitable endeavors over recent months, whether at corporate or individual level, to limit the damage of this pandemic.

The donation was handed over on 10 March by Ignacio Ramos Gorostiola, GMV’s corporate manager of People Strategy & Infrastructures, on behalf of the whole firm and its employees. Ignacio Ramos thanked the whole staff for this charitable gesture, standing as a fine example of the company’s corporate culture and its employees’ and collaborators’ fellow feeling with all those struggling to make ends meet in this current crisis. "Our support of the groups hardest hit by the pandemic is more necessary than ever. It’s really heartwarming to see how the whole GMV family has come together in this common endeavor to help those most in need at these truly difficult times".
