On December 20, OKKO and the children's educational and rehabilitation center Dzherelo have launched a joint project on collecting paper for recycling at filling stations of the network. All funds received for the collection of recycled materials will be directed to the rehabilitation of 300 children with disabilities, which is taken care of by the Lviv center.

"The theme of social responsibility plays an important role in our company's activities. So, when Dzherelo came to us with such an initiative - we sincerely supported it. They ordered and installed special containers on the most popular filling complexes so that all those who care can leave the waste paper and thus help the children. After all, each kilogram of recycled paper will be able to make the process of rehabilitation of children at Dzherelo center more comfortable and of high quality", - emphasizes Yaroslava Polyakova, OKKO Head of Corporate Communications Department.

Today there are 5 containers for collecting waste paper in Lviv found at the following addresses:

- Chornovola Ave., 14;

-  Rudnenska Str, 1;

- Volodymyr the Great Str, 58a;

- Naukova Str, 2;

- Washington Str, 12

In the future, the initiators of the project plan to expand the list of locations, where it will be possible to drop waste paper and to join the good cause.

"For all the students of our center we strive to provide comfortable accomodation, training, adaptation, and, accordingly, we constantly need funds for the purchase of equipment, payment for specialists, premises, etc.," said Natalya Sirejuk, head of the social projects and development center Dzherelo. - Therefore, the help from those who care is always appropriate. Social responsibility and solidarity from business motivate us to go further and create new opportunities for children who especially need support in their lives."

Additionaly, the filling stations of the network have containers for the collection of used clothes and other household items. The main recipients of such assistance are homeless people, orphans, people with disabilities, boarding schools and geriatric institutions, forced migrants and residents of settlements near the line of delineation in the Donbass. All clothes and things are transferred to them for free.
