“The integral approach of the activities we have in volunteering allows us to provide support that really transforms the communities in which we intervene, allowing our employees to contribute in that purpose of transcending their work activity. This year our team has dedicated more than 8,000 hours to volunteer activities. Strengthening education, living conditions and the environment, we help build a better country for everyone”, said Ana Villegas, Executive Director of Fundación Grupo Argos.
