Playing Bingo with the Homeless

On National Volunteering Day, 28 September 2017, the two TommyCares partners Stichting Buurtbuik and Amsterdam Cares teamed up to organize a dinner for 50 homeless people in Amsterdam, followed by a festive Bingo Night.

Stichting Buurtbuik, that collects left-over but good food from our restaurant People's Place to redistribute it and prevent it from going to waste, took care of the dinner part.

Amsterdam Cares, our partner for employee engagement activities, arranged the presence of enthusiastic volunteers to help out during the night.

Through donations of our Footwear and Menswear divisions, all Bingo participants were lucky enough to win a prize!

On behalf of the homeless people, a big thanks to everybody involved.
