BENGALURU: On the back of a successful pilot initiative, Tesco HSC – the technology and operations arm of Tesco conducted a second cleanliness drive in Whitefield today amplifying the reach and impact by involving neighboring corporate houses.
The activity witnessed participation from over 250 volunteers, a majority from Tesco HSC and others from Whitefield Export Promotion Park Industrial Association (WEPPIA), neighbouring corporates and Whitefield Rising. Volunteers, this time in larger numbers, assembled in front of the Tesco HSC campus, identified various spots and swept the streets clean to create a greener and more commuter-friendly stretch.
