TGI Employees, DashMe Foundation Organise Charity Drive

In yet another show of support for our communities, TGI CARES Foundation, our employee-led social welfare driver, has organised a charity drive for the less privileged in collaboration with DashMe Foundation.

DashMe Foundation, owned by a former Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun, was established to raise funds and resources for orphaned and vulnerable children, disadvantaged youth, and victims of domestic violence.

Across some of our subsidiaries in Lagos, including WACOT Ltd, ORC Fishing and Food Processing Ltd, TGI Distri, Cormart and Chi Pharma, we sought and put together donations in form of household items, electrical appliances, kitchenware, shoes and clothing items for the Foundation for charity sales, proceeds of which will be used to cater to the welfare of the less privileged.

Our TGI CARES Foundation will continue to collaborate with like-minded organisations as we reiterate our commitment to supporting our communities as best as we can. The TGI CARES X DashMe charity drive is yet another way we have chosen to demonstrate our commitment to this cause.

Receiving the items on behalf of DashMe Foundation, Tomisin Akinwunmi, Head of Operations applauded the donations and contributions of TGI Group’s employees while expressing gratitude and solicited support for future collaborations. DashMe Foundation’s goal of changing lives, one gift at a time, creatively raising funds through charity sales is in alignment with our desire to help the plight of the neediest particularly around our business communities.
