Deloitte supports inmates of old age home

Kolkata, Nov 29 : Global professional services organization Deloitte celebrated the 11th annual edition of the 'Impact Day' which is an employee driven community service programme along with the inmates of Tollygunge Home - a shelter for the elderly, here on Friday.


The young and the old sang and danced together, others sat relishing the performances, smiling and clapping now and then, as the employees of Deloitte intermingled with the inmates of Tollygunge Home.

Aloke Tagore, HR Manager, Deloitte said, "IMPACT Day represents the organization's year-round strategic community involvement initiatives and sees the entire Deloitte team in India invest an entire workday celebrating special activities on their community projects."

The 150 year old Tollygunge Home, which provides free food and health facilities to more than 30 senior citizens depends on donations to continue with its good work and is further trying to develop a dairy farm and kitchen garden to cut-down its dependence on external sources.

"We learnt from the Home authorities that they are working towards gaining self-reliance by growing fruits and vegetables within their premises. To help them in their endeavour we have donated saplings, apart from other things," Tagore revealed.

"Our corporate social responsibility initiatives go beyond monetary donations and we want our employees to be involved in the entire process, from planning to implementation," he added.

According to the officials, more than 60 percent of Deloitte's community projects focus on issues critical to the country's economy with sustainable and broad based initiatives involving skills-based volunteerism.

The 'Impact Day' witnessed the participation of over 21,000 employees in 70 plus projects across 8 cities, the officials informed.
