The Mécénat Servier Charity Fund has signed a new partnership with Les Restos du Coeur charity of the Rouennaise area. This partnership includes financial support of 25,000 euros, as well as an offer of skills-based sponsorship missions.
This charity provides voluntary assistance to the underprivileged, particularly in the area of food by providing access to free meals, and by participating in their social and economic integration, as well as in all actions against poverty.
The Departmental Association of the Havre has recently set up a distribution center purchased by the city of Bolbec, which since October 2020, has allowed the reception, storage, and distribution of batches of several pallets of foodstuffs. The Bolbec Center welcomes about 400 families to whom 130,000 meals are served every year.
Thanks to the support of Mécénat Servier, this center will soon benefit from a cold room and an electric forklift that will facilitate the lowering of these pallets. In addition, this endowment will finance the equipment of a new 3000 m2 regional warehouse.
Servier employees from the Oril Industry site will also be able to get involved through skills-based sponsorship missions proposed by the charity (meal distribution, clothing repairs, creative workshops, help in writing the beneficiaries’ CVs, etc.).
