Volunteer Programs
           

Our corporate philantrophy includes volunteer activities which are organized throughout the year. Steelmakers provide help to children, seniors, disabled people and assist in many other places as well. In addition to financial and non-financial collections they also help at the Christmas charity hut (December 5 - 22). They have also worked as volunteer lecturers in Junior Achievement Slovakia educational projects. USSK Volunteer Days are the biggest voluntary event organized regularly since 2007, while in 2008 and 2011 they also formed part of the Our Košice project in cooperation with the Pontis Foundation. 

All these activities were awarded the Via Bona Slovakia prize in April 2009.

Notes for participants

  • Employees (of USSK and subsidiaries) and managers are cordially invited to join in the USSK Volunteer Days. They can come as individuals or as working teams and support team-building. Adult family members are welcome as well, since every helping hand is appreciated.
  • A promotion campaign has been prepared in Oceľ východu and USSK intranet/internet. Registration will start via intranet on April 17, 2019 at 9 am and continue until the volunteer rosters are full, or until May 10 at the latest. There will be a banner on the main intranet page. Registration is necessary to arrange the proper amount of work for volunteers, working tools, T-shirts and small refreshments (snack, water, and goulash after the work at each place). If you have any problem with registration, ask your assistants to help you, or do not hesitate to call or mail me or the coordinator of the selected activity. When registering a team, it is advised to register each employee individually because there will be a prize draw after the event.

 

  • Volunteers are invited to come in proper safe clothing, long trousers and sturdy laced shoes, and work safely to prevent any injury. USSK will provide special safety equipment where necessary.
  • The types of work are intended for adult volunteers, but teenagers, similarly as at home, can help their parents. Parents with children younger than 12 years should register for the Zoo, where baby sitters will be arranged to allow small children to stay and play while a parent is working.
  • Those registered for places outside Košice (animal shelter, Zoo) can use minibus transportation. Inform your activity coordinator if you are interested, please. Minibuses will be leaving on Saturday, May 18 at 7.30 am from the parking lot next to the Amphitheater.
