Metrobank steps up volunteerism opportunities for employees

More than 200 Metrobank employees volunteered to distribute hot meals and lootbags containing grocery items and toiletries to close to 3500 needy individuals in the City of Manila.

The Metropolitan Bank & Trust Company (Metrobank), through its Branch Banking Sector (BBS), stepped up its employee volunteerism program, as it partnered with its corporate social responsibility arm, Metrobank Foundation, Inc. (MBFI), in organizing a series of feeding activities to benefit underprivileged individuals in the City of Manila.

Bannered under its social response program ‘Helping Hands,’ more than 200 employees from different Metrobank branches in Metro Manila volunteered to reach out to close to 3500 individuals, mostly street dwellers, through the distribution of hot meals as well as loot bags containing grocery items, toiletries, candies and biscuits.

The activities were made possible through a partnership agreement with Caritas Manila, Inc. in support of the implementation of their Damayan Feeding Program. For four Saturdays – April 15, 19, and May 20, 27, Metrobankers extended time and effort to serve the needy.


Serving as distribution venues were: Our Lady of Remedies Parish in Malate; Our Lady of the Abandoned Parish in Santa Ana; St. Vincent de Paul Parish in Ermit; and barangays near San Fernando Dilao Parish in Paco and San Agustin Church in Intramuros.

These feeding centers organized by the said parishes provide food for thousands of homeless individuals, made possible through the support of organizations committing time and resources to help the needy.

This series of volunteerism activities for Metrobankers will be sustained for the rest of the year as the feeding program is the first among the planned activities. The next activity will be a mangrove reforestation project in partnership with Toyota Motor Philippines and the Lian Fisherfolk Association, Inc.
