U. S. Steel Košice, s.r.o. and the Carpathian Foundation opened on October 24th, 2016 the 10th edition of the Together for the Region grant program, in which a total of 13 500 euros will be distributed to support public-benefit community projects in Eastern Slovakia.
Grants from this program are available on application to non-profit organizations and local councils for projects actively involving employees of U. S. Steel Košice and its subsidiaries in the Košice and Prešov regions. Grants up to the maximum amount of 2 500 euros will be awarded to support innovative projects designed to improve safety in all fields of life, develop purposeful free-time activities for children and young people, as well as to promote environmental activities and education.
" The Together for the Region grant program is a very special project, because for us it is not just about providing financial support, but also about involvement and cooperation of our employees with other organizations. I am proud to see them contributing to a good cause with their voluntary work and help. This creates special values and enables us to actively help the region together."
