Bank committed and solidarity on its territory, the Caisse d'Epargne of Midi-Pyrenees continues to fight against all forms of exclusion and has just given a check for 2,200 euros to the Food Bank of Toulouse and its Region. Through its collection, redistribution and fight against food waste, this association provides a response to the urgency of the problem of hunger in the Toulouse region. It also supports people in situations of great precariousness or social disruption towards professional reintegration. In this context, it adapts its equipment to the rules of safety and hygiene to improve the working conditions of its employees and volunteers.

The "Ecureuil et Solidarité" endowment of the Caisse d'Epargne in Midi-Pyrenees contributed to the purchase of tippers to guarantee the safety of people when scrapping waste.

The presentation of this Ecureuil & Solidarité grant took place on November 15th in Toulouse, in the presence of the directors of Société Locale d'Epargne * Haute-Garonne Nord. In 2017, the Ecureuil & Solidarité scheme of the Caisse d'Epargne in Midi-Pyrénées made it possible to distribute nearly € 665,300 in donations to support investments related to 102 projects run by Midi-Pyrénées associations.
