For many years we have been refraining from giving Christmas presents to our clients and partners and instead are supporting projects within our GrECo Foundation.
The GrECo Foundation supports socially disadvantaged children and young people in various learning projects, such as supplying study materials, afternoon care, workshops and excursions in 17 countries.
The team of GrECo wishes you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Licht ins Dunkel
Licht ins Dunkel is a nationwide traditional Christmas charity in Austria that helps children and young people in need. We have supported these activities for many years.
GrECo Foundation supports SOS-Kinderdorf/Rat auf Draht. This project is very close to the heart of the GrECo Foundation. In difficult times, it is above all children and young people who need support and a sympathetic ear for problems. We are happy to contribute again this year.
ART GrECo Scholarship
For the 3rd time, the GrECo Foundation is happy to fund scholarships for talented students, an initiative by our colleagues from Poland.
Education and the promotion of extraordinary talents will be the key to the future of employment markets. Thus, we focus all our projects on supporting children and youngsters in their learning process.
We have donated used company mobile phones in the “Ö3 wonder bag” and thus disposed of them in an environmentally friendly manner and following the law.
The money from device recycling goes to the emergency aid funds of Licht-ins-Dunkel and Caritas, thus helping families in need in Austria. In addition, thanks to this support, permanent jobs are created for people with fewer job opportunities.
Support for Ukraine
The GrECo Foundation has provided emergency assistance to all those colleagues who wanted to leave Ukraine. Many of our colleagues from GrECo markets bordering Ukraine were helping to organize accommodation and the provision of necessities.
Colleagues from GrECo Holding are (still) in an ongoing exchange with the Ukrainian colleagues and are supporting the coordination of the measures.
Breakfast at the Caritas Gruft for homeless people in Vienna
Our IT-colleagues had an early start on this cold December morning to prepare and serve breakfast to around 80 homeless people who seek shelter in Vienna’s Gruft that is run by the Caritas in Austria. The GrECo Foundation served freshly baked Croissants and provided several winter care packages for the upcoming months.
Reverse Advent Calendar
Every year, our colleagues donate generously towards our Christmas project. This year we are collecting health and beauty products for the women and children at Haus Immanuel in Vienna.
