PTFS Europe partners with Single Homeless Project
16th December 2022 |
PTFS Europe has announced that as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility it will now commit to donating at least 5% of its profit every year to charitable causes. The first charity to be selected is Single Homeless Project based in London which will be supported by a donation of £10,000.
Chris Greenfield, Corporate Partnerships Manager at Single Homeless Project commented:
We are very grateful to PTFS Europe for selecting us as their first official charity partner. Millions of people are facing a crisis and are on the brink of homelessness, through no fault of their own. Support from PTFS Europe will ensure that we are able to support people who are most in need, through access to our micro-grants which can be applied to pay for things such as energy bills and food vouchers.
Nick Dimant, Chair of PTFS Europe said:
In these challenging times we think every company needs to contribute more back to the community. We chose to partner with Single Homeless Project due to the incredible work they do supporting people who feel abandoned and otherwise without hope. Single Homeless Project actually make a real difference in helping people turn their lives around.
