BE ABLE TO HELP is an initiative of the VECTOR GROUP, proving that each of us can help. All of our activities are aimed at supporting the local community and promoting good practices to protect the environment around us.

Since 2018, with our employees, we have been supporting children from Educational Child Care Centres in Gdynia. How? Quite often, such places have trouble with small renovation or furnishing budget. Together with the caretakers of the Educational Centre, we gathered a list of the most needed pieces of furniture, as well as the places that need refurbishing.

And then…the magic happens. Employees from all the VECTOR companies willingly engage in helping with the initiative by assembling wardrobes, chests of drawers, bookcases, and beds. Outside the confines of our offices, armed with all the necessary tools, we furnished a dream home for the children. Until today, together with our colleagues, we have managed to bring a smile on 26 faces of the children from two Educational Child Care Centres in Gdynia. What is especially important for them is having a friendly and safe space to work, develop, and rest.

The closest neighbourhood, however, takes in more than us, people. So we turned to those who also need to have their houses refurbished but their issue is often forgotten. We have been paying attention to the surrounding ecosystem and observing it with a growing interest day by day. We have never stopped learning that sustainable development is essential for both parties – society and nature; so we need to take care of it.

This year, we would like you to join us in our efforts to protect birds by feeding them during periods of frost and heavy snowfall. If you decide to start feeding birds, you need to remember that you will be responsible for any birds that pay you a visit. Therefore, to provide a healthy and nutritious buffet for different bird species, there are a few rules you have to be aware of. Check our article, in which you can find some important clues.
