The JSW Foundation provided financial support to the Homeless Shelter run by the charity organization Caritas of the Sosnowiec Diocese. With the money obtained from donations made by the Foundation, a van and fit-out assets were purchased for the Shelter and its premises.
In appreciation of their sensitivity, understanding and assistance provided to children raised in the Children’s Home in Cieszyn, the Director of the facility expressed her gratitude to over a dozen individuals and companies that had been cooperating with the Children’s Home for years. On behalf of JSW, the medal “Children’s friend 2019” was accepted by Agnieszka Barzycka, Leader of the JSW Corporate Social Responsibility Team, which is involved in activities aimed at helping children in need.
We know the winners of the competition organized under the JSW Knowledge Mine program. The winners, both in the team and individual category, received awards from the hands of the Jastrzębska Spółka Węglowa management board members. The ceremony wrapped up the biggest educational project executed by JSW last year.
On 1 January 2020, JSW’s new mine acquired a different name. The mine Bzie-Dębina under development became “Jastrzębie-Bzie”. This means that the combined mine “Borynia-Zofiówka-Jastrzębie” will be transformed into a two-section colliery with its name shortened to “Borynia-Zofiówka”.
Employees of Jastrzębska Spółka Węglowa celebrated Saint Barbara Miners’ Day 2019 in exceptional circumstances. This year’s celebrations coincided with two anniversaries of great significance for JSW. The Zofiówka Section is celebrating half a century of operation and the Pawłowice-based mine “Pniówek” is celebrating its 45th anniversary. During the ceremony that took place last Wednesday, decorations were also awarded, including gold, silver and bronze medals for long service, along with honorable swords and mining ranks.
