The month of good deeds has just started! The company SIVECO has launched the campaign "A book – a heartfelt gift for the mind", for endowing libraries and foster care centers for children and elderly with educational materials: travel books of maps, encyclopedias, motivational and historical books.

The first activity was developed together with Foundation for Community Support in Bacău, where 500 books were donated, that reached the day care center for elderly ”Dr. Stefan Ciobanu”, the residential center "Elderly persons Village - Milly", the children clubs from Motoșeni, Slobozia Nouă, Podu Turcului, Dealu Morii, Vultureni and from the Mozaic center.

”Ion Creangă” public Library in Bucharest, recently reopened to the public after a large scale refurbishment, received the visit of SIVECO employees, who donated 230 books and 210 CDs to be used by those passionate about reading and music. The undertaking was supported by Young Initiative Association, which will send some of the books for the endowment of the athenaeum (reading room) at the Foster Home no.4 in Bucharest.

Some 200 books and 210 CDs were donated to the County Library Octavian Goga in Cluj-Napoca –for the opening of the first mini-library developed within the project „Get involved and offer a gift. Become a volunteer!”
