AcmeLabs in the Community – Santiago, Chile
In 2010 our team in Chile began working with the Domingo Savio Foundation. Domingo Savio is dedicated to providing life skills to children and youth at risk in the South of Santiago. This is a nonprofit organization that receives no help from the government.
- As part of the annual National Holiday celebrations, in 2010 our employees competed to build a food donation for Domingo Savio youth. Between our employees we amassed over half a ton of foodstuffs.
- At Christmas time several members of staff donated presents to the children of Domingo Savio. For many of them, this was their only present, so the gesture was very welcome!
- In 2011 our company is helping with a Project to expand the building by way of a second floor. Domingo Savio has a waiting list of people from the area, and with extra space they will be able to help more people in need. We will be working with AcmeLabs stakeholders and suppliers to help Domingo Savio reach their goal of a second floor. A charity in North America has offered to match dollar for dollar all moneys raised.
