The Saint-Gobain Initiatives Foundation contributed to the refurbishment of the Emmaüs Solidarité association’s emblematic welcome center in Paris (France). It took 15 months’ work for this center to regain its dignified level of comfort and hospitality.
A Saint-Gobain employee, Olivier Lécroart, was the project sponsor and supervised the work’s progress. Placoplatre also contributed by donating plasterboard for the refurbishment work.
“I am delighted to see the work finished,” said Pierre-André de Chalendar, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Saint-Gobain, at the official opening ceremony. “We are proud to have contributed to helping Emmaüs in its mission to welcome and provide social support to the most underprivileged.”
