Fund-raising: AmCham Thanksgiving Charity Drive

As we are organizing our annual AmCham Thanksgiving Gala Charity Dinner 2017 we would like to take this opportunity to host our traditional Annual Thanksgiving Charity Drive to make a change for those who need it the most in our community.

As has been AmCham's tradition, we will seek again donations from our members to be distributed to a deserving charity in Slovakia.

Last year, AmCham Slovakia distributed 15,000 EUR to “Pod krídlami Dominiky - Under the wings of Dominika“ from Nitra. The contribution is currently being used for bringing patients for treatment, the purchase of a special CRP device for a better examination, to pay for special personnel trainings and a special medical license to establish a hospice for sick children.

This year AmCham plans to support Svetielko pomoci - Light of Help from Košice, nominated by U. S. Steel Košice, s.r.o.

This organization serves as the first children's mobile hospice in Eastern Slovakia in cooperation with the League Against Cancer of the Slovak Republic and the Department of Child Oncology and Hematology of the Children's Faculty Hospital in Košice. It also provides free transportation of oncological patients within the Košice and Prešov regions, free accommodation in a substitute home for parents in Košice, psychologists and social workers services, providing relaxation stays and meetings for families with children in treatment or after treatment, as well as families who have lost their child due to cancer. The organization carries out projects from grant programs and collaborates with organizations that have a similar focus. 

In order to make this Charity Drive a success, we kindly ask you for your support. The suggested contribution for AmCham members is 1,000 € and 200 € for individuals. Of course, any amount is greatly appreciated.

Please complete the attached Pledge Record and send it to AmCham by email at amcham@amcham.sk by November 23, 2017. All contributions can be accepted by bank transfer to our special Charity Drive account: American Chamber of Commerce in the SR, account number SK49 1100 000 000 292 690 2357.  

The solicited amount will be handed out to the charity during the Thanksgiving Gala Charity Dinner on November 24, 2017.

Sincerely, AmCham Team.
