Come Rain or Shine volunteering programme
In 2009, Kompania Piwowarska in Poland started its employee volunteer programme, Come Rain or Shine. This scheme enables employees to volunteer their time during working hours to support local community or charitable organisations.
Employees can submit applications for support which are then evaluated to ensure they meet the objectives of the programme. Projects might typically focus on education, healthcare, poverty, physical disability, health and fitness or cultural heritage.
During 2009, Kompania Piwowarska launched 17 voluntary projects. These involved 135 volunteers and helped 2,058 individuals (1,698 children and 360 adults).
