SAVE for Rome, Employees Dedicate a Day to Renew Elementary School – Samsung Global Newsroom
— October 12, 2018
On the 3rd of October, more than 50 Samsung Electronics Italy (SEI) employees participated in SAVE for Rome, a volunteer project dedicated to renewing Rome’s Aldo Fabrizi Elementary School. This project is part of the SAVE – SAmsung Volunteer Employee initiative, which aims to provide all SEI employees with an opportunity to play an active role in hands-on projects for the society they live in. Last July, more than 250 SEI employees took part in SAVE for Milan,renewing the Robert Baden-Powell Park. Other SEI employees took part in SAVE for Kids, renovating the Benedetta D’intino Foundation, a center for children who experience difficulties in communication.
Employees focused mainly on renovating the entrance of the school, repainting the entrance gate and the fences, as well as walls and benches vandalized by graffiti and writing.
SAVE for Rome was organized in collaboration with Retake Rome, a “non-profit and non-partisan movement of citizens, engaged in the fight against degradation” of metropolitan areas in and around the communities of Rome. The effort was also in-part a collaboration with the students of Aldo Fabrizi, as they volunteered to participate in the renovation by painting parts of the school. The activities students took part in gave them not only an excellent opportunity to learn to give back to the communities for a common good, but also an example of a culture of giving.
Samsung, as leader in technology, strives to provide various solutions to improve people’s lives and help them Do What You Can’t. SAVE for Rome is just one example of Samsung and its employees giving back to the community and investing in the future of the children. This project is also a part of the annual Samsung Global Volunteer Festival held in October, a broader approach for Samsung employees to positively impact communities around them.
