Masterpak Contributes to its Own during Holiday Season

Flexible packaging manufacturer promotes concern for each other with personal donations and an annual 'Christmas Round'.

It's the season for giving at Masterpak, with two initiatives contributing to fellow employees.

"Our group's President, Neemat Frem, encourages us to promote good ideas and actions and to ignore the negative… we must build on the positive, especially during this holiday season,” says Wissam Moubarak, General Manager.

A tradition since 1999, Masterpak employees contribute to a common collection box. Masterpak then matches employee donations and redistributes the total among employees with special needs.

The collection box, which started as a small initiative, has grown. Even employees who have relocated to Egypt or Saudi Arabia with mother company, INDEVCO Group, continue to contribute each year.

Further, for 2007, Masterpak's management team, led by Production Manager Maroun Aoun, kicked off a new idea: the “Christmas Round". On Christmas Eve, a group of managers and employees go to the homes of select members of the Masterpak family, offering clothing, food and warm smiles.

Maroun Aoun, the leader of the Christmas Round, described:
“It's one of the best Christmas's I've had in years! Giving to others is a great gift by itself. It makes you feel happy; it teaches the true meaning of love and empathy. I hope next year we'll be able to visit even homes with a smile and a message of peace!”
