The beginning of December marks another milestone in the preparations for the Grand Finale fundraiser. It is high time the Collection Boxes and promotional posters were delivered to the 1600 Collection Centres all over the world! Almost 200 volunteers joined the action. Apart from our Peace Patrollers and the Foundation’s staff, employees of the UPS Polska with families got engaged. The company have been a huge supporter of the GOCC Foundation for several years now. The whole action was organized on 3 December in the UPS warehouses in Łazy.

A cardboard Collection Box is an indispensable element of the winter fundraiser. In order to deliver the Collection Boxes to the Collection Centres, the Foundation annually organizes an action of packing and posting the parcels.

What’s the repertory for this year?

The Orchestra will play for the 31st time to aid the Polish national healthcare system. This time the main objective of the Grand Finale is to purchase equipment which will allow for a quick diagnosis of bacteria that may lead to sepsis. For the first time in history, the Foundation will fundraise for all the patients in need, regardless of age. The Grand Finale for all – the little and the big ones.
