MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The action was organized by the regional union of organizations “In the name of good”, which united well-known volunteer movements involved in various types of social assistance.
The main goals of the participation of UIS employees and veterans in it are involvement in the volunteer movement, the development of a sense of civic responsibility, indifference and empathy, as well as strengthening the team spirit.
For more than a month, together with the residents of Primorye, they helped volunteers in organizing and carrying out various projects. According to the concept of the “Helping Together” marathon, each week was dedicated to a specific type of charity: helping lonely elderly people and people in difficult life situations, children with disabilities, caring for homeless animals and protecting the environment.
Participants independently determined the type of charity in which they would like to express themselves. In particular, through their efforts, a “good box” was replenished in a local shopping center, assistance was provided in cleaning the territory of the “Umka” foundation, hygiene items and art kits were handed over to the Yekaterinovskiy children’s psycho-neurological boarding school.
And it was decided to mark the week of environmental assistance by installing bird feeders on the territory of the Main Directorate. And this is no coincidence: the day before, a powerful snow cyclone passed in the region, which covered the main food base for small birds.
In the process of participating in the online charity marathon of good deeds, the staff and veterans of the UIS tried themselves in practical charity, got acquainted with the heads of organizations and foundations, planning further cooperation.
