Not only enterprises in the locality, some others outside the province have also positively responded.
At the 2018 Spring Warmed with Love program, Kinh Bac City Development Holding Corporation gave 2,000 gifts worth VND1 billion to poor people in Hai Duong.
The achievement was made thanks to the PFFC's initiative and creativity in joint propaganda and mobilization over the past years.
PFFC Vice Chairman Le Van Can said that every year, the PFFC proactively works out and realizes mobilization plans to present gifts to the poor on Tet occasion.
On the basis of a general plan, the PFFC's Standing Board asks two Fatherland Front levels in the province and member organizations to devise and disseminate mobilization plans to their members with the motto of successfully persuading as many organizations, units, enterprises, and individuals to join in giving gifts to poor people as possible.
However, mobilization and gift presentation must be transparent and timely.
The PFFC's Standing Board has requested the chairman of the Provincial People's Committee to write a letter to call on organizations, enterprises, and individuals to present Tet gifts to the poor and closely and effectively collaborated with Central and local press agencies to promote propaganda to arouse mutual affection in everyone, including business owners.
"The PFFC's Standing Board has also assigned each leader of the front to take advantage of their relations to mobilize enterprises both in and outside the province to join in presenting Tet gifts to poor people. The efficiency of this approach is more and more obvious," said Can.
After each time of mobilizing enterprises to give Tet gifts to the poor, all businesses making great contributions were promptly praised and recognized.
