ContourGlobal Maritsa East 3 TPP Donates over 2 Tons of Pon-Perishable Food to 3 Social Organizations in Stara Zagora

The Help People in Need, Give Hope for Christmas charity campaign will bring joy to dozens of people in need from the region. Employees of ContourGlobal Maritsa East 3 TPP donated more than 2000 kg of non-perishable food and hygienic materials to 3 social organizations in Stara Zagora. Inspired by December 5th – World Volunteer Day and the upcoming Christmas holidays, the company’s employees bought and distributed the necessary products to help people in need.

Within two weeks, the energy workers from ContourGlobal Maritsa East 3 TPP gathered 2228 kg. of legumes, flour, oil and canned food, which will be handed over to the Social Kitchen at the church of St. Paisii Hilendarski in Stara Zagora, which cares for dozens of lonely elderly and socially disadvantaged people, the Samaritans House Crisis Center, which houses women and children victims of violence, and the Day Care Center for People with Mental Disabilities and Chronic Mental Problems St. St. Kozma and Damian , visited daily by 20 people.

The employees of the company from the head office in Sofia also joined the initiative, collecting sanitary and hygienic materials for the young people from the Protected House at the Samaritans Association. It is currently home to boys and girls who have recently left institutions for children and young people deprived of parental care and are in the process of adapting to life outside – looking for work and independent housing.

‘The initiative came from our colleagues, and their enthusiasm was really contagious – they not only came up with the idea and actively participated in acquiring the necessary goods, but also personally helped to pack and transport them to the recipients.
This is the true spirit of volunteering – our energy workers not only generate electricity, but also charge us with their will for good. Thus, during the holidays, along with the Christmas lights, the hearts of people in need will shine too’, said Nadya SinigerskaBohorova, Communications and CSR Manager at the company.
