Carrefour undertakes charity activities throughout the year, and strengthens its commitment before the holiday season. Thanks to the company’s support, NGOs can carry out projects with the aim to fight against poverty and social exclusion.

As part of its support before the holiday season, Carrefour, already from the beginning of November, took part in many different charity initiatives:

  • The network supported the Celebrations of the first World Day of the Poor, organized by the Foundation Kapucyńska im. bł. Aniceta Koplińskiego and offered food products for the meeting with the homeless, organized by the foundation and the Friars Capuchin.
  • We also took part in the action “Noble package” (Szlachetna Paczka). In our shop at the Northern Gallery (Galerie Północna), Polish Olympians: Anita Włodarczyk, Magdalena Fularczyk-Kozłowska and Tomasz Majewski, did shopping for those most in need. Whereas in Carrefour’s store at the commercial Gallery Arkadia, we had the opportunity to welcome Polish political representatives: Monika Rosa, Agnieszka Ścigaj, Paweł Szefernaker, Rafał Trzaskowski and Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz.
  • The Foundation „Prometeusz dla Seniorów” also received support from Carrefour who offered many food products and hygiene articles. In addition, the Foundation organized food donations during the week-end at Carrefour’s store in Sadyba Best Mall. As a result, 200 packages, for seniors in difficult health and financial situation, were prepared and given away during a meeting for Christmas Eve.
  • Carrefour also supported the charity auction untitled “ZangażowANI”. The collected funds were used for financing the rehabilitation of Ania, who suffered from an accident. The network Carrefour offered for bidding an original Tour de Pologne jersey signed by Czesław Lang and Peter Sagan, books “With love for taste” and Carrefour branded sweets.
  • Carrefour also offers its help for many years to the SHOM Charity Bazar, organized by the Group of the Spouses of Heads of Mission. This year, the event was held on 3rd December and was organized under the honorary patronage of the First Lady, Agata Kornhauser-Duda. Like each year, many Embassies from a lot of different countries supported the initiative and the collected funds were shown to charity organizations. Carrefour offered for the bazar its Reflets de France products and cooking books “With love for taste”.
  • The company is supporting as well the Foundation “Help for transporters” (Pomoc Transportowcom). Carrefour Poland gave away products for the holiday season’s meetings with children and seniors. Besides, the Foundation regularly gets products from three big Carrefour hypermarkets in Warsaw for its recipients.
  • We also helped the young children of the Association for Disabled People “Pinokio” in Starograd Gdański for their Christmas packages. The Centre is taking care of around 250 children of all ages.
  • In addition, the Franchise Department offered sweets and fruits for the Christmas packages prepared by the Regional Trade Chamber of Katowice. These packages were sent to the Catholic Children Foundation of the St. Apostles Peter and Paul Parish of Katowice and to the Protection of the St. Mary Mother of God of the Perpetual Help Parish in Katowice-Szponiecie.
