C3 Spends the Day at Animal Ambulance Social Responsibility
C3's community initiative is making a positive impact
As part of C3's ongoing commitment to the local community and making an impact in a positive way, the company has arranged a variety of social community initiatives that both the Directors and Staff will be taking part in during the year. The first initiative of 2015 was to spend a day at the Animal Ambulance facility in Pretoria.
The Animal Ambulance is a 24hr emergency shelter for sick and abused animals and was established in 2002. They are a registered non-profit organisation and exist entirely on donations from individuals and fundraising events and receive no funding from the government. The purpose of The Animal Ambulance is to aid abused and sick animals who without their help would die an often painful death. Animal Ambulance believes in giving all animals a second chance as they are a pro-life shelter.
On Friday the 27th March, C3 staff members and directors spent the day at Animal ambulance taking on tasks such as cleaning out ponds, cleaning stables, bathing dogs, donkeys and even sheep. Maria Phelan from Animal Ambulance had this to say about the visit, "The awesome staff from C3 Shared Services (Pty) Ltd came here today to make a difference by each and every one of them working very hard. This is one company I will welcome back with open arms, as they got completely involved when working with the furkids. These are earth angels that are committed with a smile... from the CEO to the tea lady it was a pleasure having them here", Maria goes on to say, "C3 Staff were very hands on making our load much lighter and they blessed us with a financial donation of R10 000! THANK YOU AMAZING ANGELS!".
C3 thoroughly enjoyed the day and were thrilled to have made such a positive impact on the lives of the animals at Animal Ambulance. Its day's like these that make one realise how important it can be to close those laptops and get out into the community and see what a positive difference you can make. C3 would like to thank all staff members for attending this event and we look forward to many more 'positive days out' during the year.
