Christmas Charity Concert messages

U. S. Steel Košice provides continuous, long-term support to those who depend on assistance from others. The culmination of the Company's sponsorship activities each year is the now traditional Christmas Concert.

Support for foster homes

U. S. Steel Košice has been supporting foster homes and centers for children and families in eastern Slovakia for 19 years now.


The children write their gift wishes on special cards, so that Company employees can fulfill them in time for Christmas. The Wishing Trees have gained a firm place in their hearts, and many employees take it for granted that apart from their own children, they also bring pleasure with a Christmas gift to a foster home child.


During the Concert, symbolic checks from the U. S. Steel Košice Foundation will be presented to representatives from the St. Klement Hoffbauer Foster Home in Podolínec, the Center for Children and Families on Uralská Street in Košice, and the Halfway House in Košice.

Support for the families of employees who find themselves in a difficult life situation

Ten families, meaning ten different stories, and ten difficult situations. Some have had to come to terms with the death of somebody very close, while others are struggling with serious illness, either of one of the parents or one of the children, who need to be taken care of.

Taking their minds off their problems and providing space for happy experiences are the aims of the program called “We are with you at the right time”, which U. S. Steel Košice has been running for eight years now. In addition, at the end of the year each family receives financial support in the form of a lump sum of 2 000 €.


A video sequence will be shown during the Concert, presenting the story of the family of Martin Čoltek.

U. S. Steel Košice volunteering activity and support for the Center for Children and Families on Hurbanova Street in Košice

For many years now corporate volunteering has featured in the U. S. Steel Košice activities focusing on community support. The biggest event of the year is the Steelmakers for Košice Volunteer Days, which the Company has been organizing since 2007. For getting employees involved in volunteering activities, U. S. Steel Košice gained the Via Bona Slovakia Award in 2008.


Steelmakers have also been actively helping out at the Center for Children and Families on Hurbanova Street in Košice for several years. There will be a video sequence presenting their volunteering activities generally during this year, of course including Hurbanova.

During the Concert the director of the Center will receive a symbolic check with the proceeds from the ticket sales. The check will be presented by one of the employees who bought tickets to this Concert.
