Christmas project for children of the District Orphanage in ŻARY
Christmas is a time of warmth, cordiality and kindness. In the pre-holiday period of 2016, LUG staff once again showed that these values accompany them on a daily basis and moreover, want to share them with others. All kindness was found in the organization of Christmas gifts, donated to children from the Children's Home in Żary. At the LUG headquarters in Zielona Góra as well as in the research and production center in Nowy Kisielin, a number of unique Christmas baubles were hung out, representing the specific Christmas dreams of children, inspired by the collected letters addressed to St. Nicholas. All the employees, individually and collectively, took away the Christmas baubles, so that they could make smaller and bigger wishes come true before the holidays. Purchased gifts were appropriately forwarded to the District Children's House in Żary, where it was given to the authors of the letters. It is said that "Happiness is something that multiplies when it is divided." and described action is the best example of it.
