BOXMARK sees itself as part of society and its business activities constantly keep it in contact with people. We want to show responsibility and make our contribution to society, especially in the regions in which we do business. We are particularly committed to providing humanitarian aid for people in distress. We also consider it important to support organizations and projects in the region surrounding BOXMARK facilities, so that local people end up benefitting from such activities.
Christmas fundraising campaign
Social commitment has always been a top priority at BOXMARK, particularly during the Christmas season. Every year, a Christmas fundraising campaign provides financial assistance to people who are in need through no fault of their own. Support is provided particularly to people from regions surrounding BOXMARK facilities.
Financial assistance for families in need
In 2016, families from Southeast Styria were again supported with financial assistance. Names and photographs and descriptions of the individual situations are omitted for reasons of discretion. The selection and distribution of donations was taken care of by the Social Services Department of the District Authority for Southeast Styria. We could therefore be sure that the money ended up in the right hands.
Donations and sponsorships
However, BOXMARK’s sense of responsibility when it comes to doing good to others and society is not limited to the Christmas season alone. For example, hospitals, schools, kindergartens, public organizations, charities and cultural events are supported with monetary and material donations and as part of sponsorship activities through the year.
