Party atmosphere and solidarity at Stichting Jarige Job present packing session!
On Wednesday, 15 November, a team of cleaning staff, team leaders, receptionists, planners, managers, maintenance and administrative staff, and Schiphol employees, joined forces for the Stichting Jarige Job present packing session. Together, they packed birthday boxes for children from families suffering from financial hardship. This initiative, organised by Stichting Jarige Job, aims to give these children an unforgettable birthday. This time it was extra special because it was the first time that team members from the operational side of Vebego participated in this charity event.
The goal was clear: for several hours the Vebego teams worked tirelessly to pack as many birthday boxes as possible. Each wrapped gift represented a smile that would appear on the face of a child who might otherwise not have had an opportunity to celebrate their birthday.
Participating in the event not only resulted in a huge amount of wrapped gifts, but also a deeper connection between Vebego’s managers and cleaners. For the first time, people from the operational departments worked side by side with management, creating a sense of unity and mutual involvement. Together with Schiphol employees themselves, they joined forces to make a positive impact on the lives of children in need.
The joy that this joint effort fostered was clear to see on the faces of those who were taking part. Sharing this experience with colleagues not only created joy, but also strengthened our commitment to social responsibility. Why would this experience also be fantastic for you? The answer is simple and powerful: it brings people together for a common purpose and offers the opportunity to do something tangible for society. Vebego strives for impact, not only within the organisation, but also further afield.
“The joy that this joint effort fostered was clear to see on the faces of those who were taking part.”
So, as we look back on a day of packing, joy and togetherness, we encourage everyone to join the Stichting Jarige Job present packing session next time and, together, bring a smile to the faces of children who deserve it the most.
