For the 19th consecutive year, AmCham is organizing its Charity Drive to help children from 8 orphanages across the country and one single mothers' shelter in Słomczyn. All gifts are welcome, however, as these organizations struggle for everyday items, we encourage you to read the list below before making a decision on your donation. Please note that the single mothers’ shelter primarily needs fundamental articles, especially clothing and shoes for the winter. The items in bold are ones that are needed most.
In order to deliver the goods for Christmas we must receive them by Wednesday, December 10th at the AmCham office, located on Emilii Plater 53, 19h floor, 00-113 Warszawa. We are open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
It is also possible to make cash donations to our Charity fund, which is used to purchase undeliverable goods (ex. coal and natural gas) on your behalf.
Our account number is:
Fundacja Amerykańskiej Izby Handlowej w Polsce:

All companies that participate in this project will be listed on the AmCham web site and featured in the Fall edition of our magazine - The American Investor.
