Nursing home residents do not need that much: self-realization opportunities, acceptance, appreciation, a good word and support. They got all that at the 15th Art Festival of Nursing Homes in the Podkarpackie Province, which was organized thanks to benefactors and sponsors, including Südzucker Polska – Ropczyce Sugar Plant.
Daffodils are a symbol of hope. No wonder, that they have become a symbol of the international Fields of Hope program, a project to raise funds for hospices and the sick every year. The inhabitants of the Strzelin municipality also contributed their assistance to hospices on 20 and 21 April.
At the beginning of August, lovers of the Bieszczady Mountains, poetry and music met near Tarnica Peak. Südzucker Polska – Ropczyce Sugar Plant supported the organization of the fifth run of the Inspiring Bieszczady Mountains Festival. It was a melancholy yet competitive concert.
Przedszkolada (a kindergarten parade), the School Youth Culture Festival, a concert by Music School students, a sung poetry concert, a Family Gala, cavalry shows performed by members of the Podkarpacie Squadron were just some of the attractions awaiting the residents of Ropczyce and surrounding areas from 21 to 26 May. The 36th Ropczyce Region Days was a big success!
Every year, during the grand finale of the Wielka Orkiestra Świątecznej Pomocy (Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity) volunteers distribute millions of red heart stickers. During the 21st grand finale of the GOCC held at the Zamkowa restaurant in Polska Cerekiew, hearts were beating for sick children and the elderly.
The Children’s Home in Górzec has provided care to the most underprivileged kids for 50 years now. On 15 June 2012, a gala to celebrate the anniversary, Children’s Day, and Foster Parents’ Day, took place. As usual, Südzucker Polska – Strzelin Sugar Factory lent its support to the organisation of the event.
