Gift for Each Child Donor Conference Held

The Gift for Each Child Donor Conference was held in the City Museum on Monday, 7th September. The conference was organised by the Municipality of Vršac, Vršac City Museum, and the Konkordija Regional Centre for Protection of Banat Cultural Heritage.

Owing to the donations made by: Drugi Oktobar Utility Company, Hemofarm Foundation, e-SMART Systems, STUP Vršac Bus Transport Company, Srbija Hotel, Hiteam Company and Zoka Company, the goal of the donor conference – organisation of a three-day educational excursion for the pupils of Jelena Varjaški School will be completed.

Mr Čedomir Živković, President of Municipality, addressed the guests and thanked the donors. Pointing out that this gift will make about thirty pupils with developmental disabilities happy – among them some children who will go on a school trip for the first time, President expressed special gratitude to the main donors – Hemofarm Foundation and Drugi Oktobar Utility Company, stressing that a complicated organisation is not always necessary, nor a large sum of money, but the desire to do something nice for our neighbours, which is best illustrated by this example. President drew special attention to the considerate example of personal donations made by members of the Hemofarm Board of Directors, Ms Sonja Pejović and Mr Dušan Milutinović.

The guests were then addressed by Miss Aleksandra Panić, Member of Municipal Board for Culture.
