To make the winter season brighter for at least some of the children in low-income families of Sumgayit, SOCAR Polymer once again donated New Year gifts consisting of warm clothing that would warm not only bodies, but also hearts. The gift bags were distributed at the charity event traditionally organized by the Sumgayit branch of the Red Crescent Society (RCS) under the invariable slogan “Hasten to be merciful”.
The list of 100 children in need of warm clothing was made by Sumgayit RCS branch through cooperation with the principals of Sumgayit’s educational facilities. The list included mostly children who had lost one or both parents, as well as multiple siblings in low-income families. Warm overcoats, sweaters, pants, hats, and gloves were purchased and sorted out by the Procurement and PR teams of our company.
Initially planned for the New Year eve, the event was then postponed due to tightened COVID-19-related restrictions, so, the event beneficiaries were invited to come collect their gift bags at the administrative building of Sumgayit RCS on January 11. For health safety purposes, they were invited to arrive in small groups at the beginning of every hour during the day.
The Jr PR Specialist for SOCAR Polymer, Bakhtiyar Allahverdiyev welcomed the event participants and expressed best wishes on behalf of our company. In her turn, the chairperson of the Sumgayit RCS branch, Matanat Maharramova expressed gratitude to SOCAR Polymer for their regular contribution to such charity initiatives over the past 4 years and, thus, for bringing joy to hundreds of families. In conclusion of the event, she presented to our representative a Certificate of Gratitude for SOCAR Polymer’s General Director, Fuad Ahmadov’s support to Sumgayit communities and children.
Those who hadn’t been able to attend the event had their gift bags delivered to their doors by the volunteers of RCS’s Sumgayit branch.
