200 Elior Group employees participate in challenges to raise money for the fight against hunger
The association Elior Group Solidarities, which supports the most vulnerable members of the community, offered Elior Group employees the opportunity to participate in the Challenge against Hunger. 200 Group employees from nine cities in Spain, France and Italy rallied to this unifying experience. The NGO Action against Hunger has organized this international sporting event to finance its humanitarian missions around the world. The funds raised by the Elior Group employees will enable 155 children to be treated for severe acute malnutrition which is the most extreme form of under-nutrition.
Between May and October, Elior Group teams defended the Group's colors and rose to meet this sporting challenge in France (Toulouse, Paris-La Défense, Lille, Lyon, Strasbourg, Marseilles and Nantes), in Spain (Barcelona) and in Italy (Milan). Elior Group Solidarities donated €15 to Action against Hunger for every lap completed (walking, running) or for every six minutes of activity (running, walking, zumba, soccer, yoga, boxing, tai-chi, climbing, etc.).
Created in 2017, Elior Group Solidarities supports projects which have a direct impact on their beneficiaries and offer tangible and long-lasting results.
Elior Group Solidarities backs projects in the fields of nutrition, education and access to employment by:
- providing financial support for solidarity projects submitted by Group employees;
- forging partnerships with international associations;
- attributing study grants to students from low-income families.
