    “Parcel with a smile”. The policemen in the role of Santa Clauses gave gifts from Żabka to the patients of Poznań children’s hospitals

    On the occasion of Saint Nicholas’ Day, Żabka Polska in cooperation with the International Police Association IPA provided gifts to small patients of two Poznań hospitals. The chain prepared 450 parcels, which were handed over to the children by the officers of the Intervention Department of the Police Headquarters in Poznań Metropolitan Police Force. Santa Claus visited patients of the Greater Poland Children’s Health Center at Wrzoska Street and the Karol Jonscher Clinical Hospital of the Karol Marcinkowski Medical University at Szpitalna Street.

    On December 6, policemen from the Intervention Department in Poznań visited the youngest patients staying in children’s hospitals to give them some joy. At about 9:00 a.m. they visited patients of the Greater Poland Children’s Health Center, then around 1:00 p.m. they visited patients of the Karol Jonscher Clinical Hospital of Poznań Medical University. The action aimed to make children smile, who for various reasons spend this usually joyful time in the hospital.

    The handover of gifts to the small patients was preceded by demonstrations using unmarked police cars, conducted under the buildings of both hospitals. An officer disguised as Santa Claus, accompanied by uniformed policemen, went to the wards to present gifts to the children.

    As a company, having its headquarters in Poznań, Żabka willingly initiates and participates in events aimed at the local community. This is the second time that it has been involved in Sait Nicholas’ Day help for Poznań hospitals.

    Gifts for children were prepared as part of a voluntary service by employees of the company. By engaging in the unique “Parcel with a Smile” action, employees can participate in packaging parcels with gifts for needy children under the care of, among others: the Bone Marrow Team Foundation, the Happy Kids Foundation, the In_Spire Foundation, the Association of the Center for Promotion and Development of Citizens’ Initiatives, as well as small patients in Poznań hospitals. As part of the employee volunteering, each Żabka employee can spend up to 8 hours a month helping others during working hours.
