The CCC Group was the first Polish company to become a global partner of UNICEF. Over the next three years CCC will provide money to help children in the world.
CCC has always supported charity activities, and now, thanks to the strength of its brand and growing international success, it has decided to cooperate with the largest humanitarian and development organization working for children. CCC S.A. is the largest footwear company in Central Europe. The partnership will be communicated in CCC stores in 21 countries.
CCC is also the main sponsor of a cycling group whose roots go back to the year 2000. T-shirts of CCC Team riders are marked with the UNICEF logo. Thus, the CCC cycling group, during races all over the world, proudly presents the cooperation with UNICEF and the company's involvement in activities for the benefit of children. This is the first such sport partnership of its kind.
In addition to the involvement of the Company, the employees of the CCC Group willingly initiate and actively participate in volunteer actions, including the Grant Programme, which has been implemented since 2018.
The main objective of implementing volunteering in the CCC Group is to integrate employees around common values and engage as many employees as possible. In this way, CCC volunteers can serve to support local communities and improve their skills.

All more than 100 packages contained both basic necessities requested by families and Christmas gifts. As usual, all parcels contained shoes, which were added to the parcels by CCC.
Cooperation with partners:
Association for Children and Youth SZANSA in Głogów
In 2018, one of the organisations that received support from CCC was the Association for Children and Youth SZANSA in Głogów, engaged in work for children, young people and their families. Last year, the Association launched the Children's Aid Centre (CPD). It is one of four such places in Poland, where a child together with parents and guardians will receive comprehensive assistance, has an interdisciplinary diagnosis and intervention. There is an interrogation room in the CPD where children can be interrogated by the court in a friendly, safe environment. CPD is a place for violent, sexually abused children, for those in acute crisis, suicidal behaviour, for children participating in legal procedures. CCC has permanently started cooperation with SZANSA. Apart from CPD, SZANSA creates a space for young people to pursue their passions, develop talents and skills, work to change their behaviour, but also engage in helping others, doing something necessary for their local environment. One of the directions of work with children and young people is to encourage them to be active, to show their own initiative. There are many examples of such youth initiatives, and their implementation also involves employees who in the past received support from SZANSA.
