How the employee got involved and why

It has been two years now since I joined the Deloris Dawkins Foundation Ltd. Since the inception of the charity, I have voluntarily assisted with secretarial duties for the charity such as filing the necessary paperwork to get the charity registered and assisted with the banking transactions of the charity. I am also involved in receiving and filing the renewal paperwork for the charitable status. I became part of this organization because of my love to help others and this a meaningful way to help society. It truly gives me great joy in assisting in any way that I can and with these types of actions towards others, it guides me in becoming humbled and grateful as a person.

What work does the employee do for charity

Before the pandemic, our organization started a small breakfast program at a local basic school in the community. I would got involved by purchasing the necessary items needed for the program and provide these items in a timely manner so that the principal could receive the items to prepare breakfast for the students two days out of the week. In the upcoming months, our organization is planning to distribute food supplies to elderly in the community as part of our annual give back program. If funds permits, we will be able to add more items and be able to provide to more people. I will be coordinating with the directors with purchasing and organizing food items for the elderly program. Currently the foundation is preparing for their annual give back to the elderly in the barking lodge and surrounding communities hence the foundation is raising 36 to lower the cost so that more elderly can receive a package this year
