Dawtona will help us organize the 26th Grand Finale and will be the main sponsor of the GOCC Run, which will take place on the day of the Grand Finale in Warsaw.
Supporting volunteer fire departments
The Board of the Foundation, having considered the needs and work that the volunteer firefighters do, decided to purchase equipment for their departments. The main beneficiaries will be fire departments in the areas affected by the hurricane, which struck northern and central Poland in August. Volunteer firefighters were first responders on the scene of the natural disaster and they remained on site to help local residents in the aftermath of the hurricane.
In total, 200 voluntary fire departments will receive equipment worth almost 1,5 million PLN. The equipment, purchased after consultations with firefighters and according to the needs declared by each unit includes electric power generators, chainsaws, and medical equipment such as PSP R1 kits and EADs. The funds allocated for the purchase of equipment for fire departments come from donations our charity receives throughout the year.
It is the second time in our history that we support Polish volunteer firefighters. In 2010 we purchased equipment for 444 voluntary fire departments in the country.
It's been 6 years that the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity has been cooperating with Mastercard. This year we are rolling out some exciting new features for our volunteers!
