AmCham Donation for the 2017 Thanksgiving Charity Drive

As every year, we have taken the opportunity to organize the Annual Thanksgiving Charity Drive with the goal of sharing with those who need it the most in our community. Attendees of the Thanksgiving Gala Charity Dinner had the opportunity to learn more about the activities of this year´s selected charity at the event as well as thru the pre-event promotion.

This year, the following charity was selected:

Svetielko pomoci / Light of Help from Košice
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 a child due to cancer. The organization carries out projects from grant programs and collaborates with organizations that have a similar focus. 

We are happy to announce that AmCham Slovakia donated 15,000 EUR to Light of Help.

In addition, the charity received the top prize from the tombola: flight tickets to North America!

Since 1998, AmCham has been instrumental in collecting and distributing 355 240 € to needy charities in Slovakia!

Once again, we would like to thank you for your generosity!
