As part of its philanthropic policy CapitalatWork Foyer Group supports with great enthusiasm the non-profit organisation Goods to Give.
Goods to Give collects non-food products from companies for the benefit of people in need!
Within the industrial sector, thousands of non-food surpluses are being destroyed (shower gels, soaps, wax products, maintenance products, etc.). Their market value is estimated at about 100 million euros, while 1.6 million people (nearly one Belgian on seven) live below the poverty line and cannot afford these basic products.
To address these problems the association Goods to Give was founded in december 2011. Goods to Give has been operational since 2013 and aims the collection of unsold non-food products in companies to redistribute at social organizations fighting against poverty and social exclusion (social welfare agencies, non-profit associations, CPAS, ASBL).
In 2016 EUR 5 million products have been redistributed at about 260 social organizations who helped 210,000 people in Belgium and Luxembourg.
