'Our Town' volunteering event

OUR Town, or Naše Mesto, the biggest corporate volunteering event in Slovakia, will take place on June 17 and 18 in Bratislava, Žilina and Košice, and will spread this year also to Galanta, Hlohovec and Spišská Nová Ves, the Pontis Foundation, one of the organisers of the event wrote on its website. As part of the European Year of Volunteering, the Pontis Foundation and the Engage group of companies have set a target of getting at least 4,000 volunteers out onto the streets of Bratislava, Žilina, Košice and other towns. Apart from manual skills, they are also willing to use employees' experience in legislation, marketing, computers or personnel to broaden the knowledge of people working in NGOs. The Our Town event is a follow-up to previous successful volunteer events branded Our Bratislava, Our Žilina and Our Košice. In total more than 5,000 employees from 60 companies worked 18,589 hours, representing 10 man-years of work in these events. The value of such work was valued at almost €80,000.
