Time to Give supports initiative providing meals to the severely ill

Earlier this year, Danske Bank launched the voluntary-work initiative Time to Give – a programme that gives employees the opportunity to spend one workday per year carrying out voluntary work. Many employees have already begun making a difference through the programme – for example in eastern Jutland, where we are supporting the NGO Det Kærlige Måltid.

Det Kærlige Måltid (‘Loving Meal’) was founded by Charlotte Thyberg. Through this initiative, volunteers assist in providing healthy and nutritious food to the severely ill – both by preparing the food and by delivering it. This makes Det Kærlige Måltid a perfect complement to Danske Bank’s Time to Give programme.

It’s really great to see that our voluntary work is helping to make a difference in the communities that we’re a part of. So many Danske Bank employees are passionate about making a difference. The fact that we as a workplace are able to support this with our Time to Give programme is fundamental to – and in line with – our Societal Impact strategy.

Time to give - what you need to know

  • All employees have the opportunity to spend one workday per year carrying out voluntary work.
  • Employees decide themselves which projects they choose to support –  the work undertaken must, however, not be political, religious or discriminatory in nature.
  • Time to Give has been inspired by programmes and activities that already exist within Danske Bank.
