CSR: iVend Retail Launches 2nd Year of Food Aid in India

May 22, 2019, India – As part of its core commitment to corporate social responsibility, CitiXsys launches a second-year initiative (#iVendGivesBack) to empower employees to serve and support the local communities around its Research & Development Centers in Delhi, India.

Every Friday CitiXsys employees on a rotating basis are given leave from work to give back to their local community by entering impoverished neighborhoods and local orphanages to distribute packaged and cooked foods, snacks and drinks. All of the food is arranged centrally by the Company, and on distribution day is cooked fresh in the morning to be distributed during lunch times to those most in need. Employees participate both in the form of distribution of food assistance and goodwill visits with children, plus by contribute packaged food donations that they have purchased on their own.

CitiXsys believes that it is part of its corporate social responsibility to be involved in issues such as respect for the people, environment, and communities that we live and work in. These principles have always been part of the Company’s activities, and find expression in corporate culture, relations with institutions and industry associations, and in outreach supporting the communities in the areas where it is present. To this end, everyone at CitiXsys participates in this initiative from the office assistants up to department heads and corporate leadership.

In its first year with a defined CSR initiative, CitiXsys employees volunteered at a local orphanage by contributing much needed raw goods and sweets for local kids and spent a few hours with them after office hours each week.

Ashna Sethi, Senior Manager of Global HR for CitiXsys, is largely to credit for spearheading the generous Company-wide CSR initiatives, commented that, “we joined in the exciting effort to do our part to donate food to impoverished communities and help meet the ambitious goal of feed one million of our fellow citizens in need of assistance.” CitiXsys has also run a charitable donation campaign for the Retail Orphan Initiative (www.retailROI.org), a foundation that seeks to help the 400 million orphaned and vulnerable children around the world.
