The fact that traditional Christmas banquets may serve a more noble cause was proved by the employees of several departments of our company during the last December. Our colleagues from the Technical Service, Operational and Central Procurement decided to use the money raised in a symbolic lottery that they organised single-handedly during the holiday gathering to help those in need.
Working as a team, they contacted the competent persons in the town’s Welfare Centre and found the Lekan family from Škrljevo, whom they visited and saw that normal living conditions of the family living in an old one-story house were influenced by a lack of kitchen, washing machine and a boiler.
After talking to Marinko, a single father of poor health, who takes care both of two underage children and his 86-year-old mother, our JGL employees did not waste any time and bought the aforementioned domestic appliances and kitchen, as well as some food and cleaning products, and donated them to the Lekan family!
That helping someone helps one develop as a person is a well known fact, so it is not surprising that the realisation of this action led to a feeling of great pride, satisfaction and happiness among the participants. In the prevailing social climate of pessimism and hopelessness, JGL’s spirit of generosity and solidarity is highly laudable!
