Developers providing kids with some Christmas cheer

Corporate social responsibility
POLAND A number of real estate development companies are to support children who live in children’s homes in Poznań and the wider Wielkopolska region in this year’s Deweloperzy Dzieciom [Developers for Children] campaign.

Playing the role of Santa, they visit children in larger state institutions and group foster homes. The campaign, which is taking place for the eighth time, started in 2007 and is becoming increasingly popular.

The finale of this year’s event will take place on December 4th at the Imagination Laboratory at the Poznań Science and Technology Park, where children will spend more than three hours doing experiments, and scientific puzzles, as well as taking part in carol singing.

Leading representatives of the local development sector are to participate in the campaign, including such companies as Agrobex, Proxin Inwestment, EBF Development, Sky Investment, KM Building and Partner Group. Eurobuild CEE will be among the event's media partners.
