France : Skills sponsorship for the Samu Social

On 21 June, Egis and Icade signed a skills sponsorship agreement in Paris with the Samu Social de Paris, a French humanitarian emergency service for homeless people and people in social distress. Skills sponsorship means making employees available during their working hours, to carrying out activities for the public good that may or may not make use of their skills. This provision of skills can be evaluated and result in a tax benefit. In this context, Egis and Icade are going to take part in a project to renovate a new Samu Social site offering refuge and care in Paris. This project is located within the Charles Foix Hospital in Ivry sur Seine, and is aimed at people suffering from social isolation. Egis and Icade are therefore pursuing their charity work in the regions by involving their employees.
