Alvogen community day in Bulgaria

For Alvogen Community day this year, our colleagues in Bulgaria got involved in two initiatives aimed at providing support to their local community - everyone at the office had the opportunity to donate blood and help at a local soup kitchen.

A blood drive was organized for all those brave team members not afraid to have some blood drawn. The initiative not only supported the Bulgarian blood bank, but also raised awareness among colleagues on the importance of donating blood. The entire process turned out to be more fun than scary - the brave bunch left their work desks on a Friday to take a road trip to the National Center for Blood Transfusion, where each team member had their blood pressure taken before being allowed to donate blood. A little needle sting and 450 ml of blood later, everyone received some sweet treats and coffee to get their energy back before getting back on the bus and returning to the office. The best part about the blood drive was the fulfillment of knowing that the blood could save another person's life. 

The other initiative the Bulgarian office got involved in was helping at a local soup kitchen. The kitchen has been taking place each Sunday at a local church for the past 14 years and has been run entirely by volunteers. Colleagues from the office in Sofia got together at the crack of dawn on Sunday to help with the preparation of hot meals for poor and homeless people, seniors and families in need. There were a number of tasks the Alvogen team helped with - putting together food packages, chopping fresh veggies, giving away hot meals and food packages, cleaning up, and various other duties. With our help, 400 people received a hot rice and veggie soup, a food package with some basic commodities, such as margarine, bread, jam, and a sandwich.

The Alvogen volunteers also provided the kitchen with 25 liters of cooking oil, enough for two consecutive Sundays. The team also got to spend some time with the children of families in need who come to the soup kitchen and provided them with brand new arts and craft materials - paper, markers, color pencils, and play dough. Being able to help those less fortunate, even with a small gesture such as cooking a hot meal for them, is a truly strong and rewarding feeling and shows the power of Playing as One at Alvogen when it comes to social responsibility.​
