SK held a ceremony at Iváncsa City Hall on Sept. 27 (local time) to deliver a donation to the local public foundations in Iváncsa, Hungary, where its third electric vehicle (EV) battery plant in Europe is currently under construction.
The ceremony was attended by Krisztián Molnár – Governor of Fejér, Molnár Tibor – Mayor of Iváncsa, Moon Hang-ki – CEO of SK On Hungary, and other representatives from the beneficiary foundations.
This is the second delivery of SK On’s donation Iváncsa, following the first delivery in 2021. Over the last two years, the company has donated a total of 15 million forints (about $50,000) to contribute to the growth of local community in Iváncsa.
The beneficiaries are four public foundations: Iváncsa City Public Foundation (Iváncsáért Közalapítvány), Our Children Foundation (Gyermekeinkért Alapítvány), Iváncsa City Large Families Association (Iváncsai Nagycsaládosok Egyesülete), and Rivalda Musical Foundation (Rivalda Musical és Színházi Stúdió).These foundations use SK On’s financial support to improve the local environment in Iváncsa, support education and cultural activities for the youth, and provide daily necessities of the underprivileged.
“Our foundation has a history of 30 years, and we are currently supporting about 300 kindergarten and elementary students in Iváncsa, from the ages of 3 to 14,” said Császárné Viló Judit, President of the Our Children Foundation, at the event. “This donation will be used in purchasing the educational software for elementary schools in the city and in supporting field learnings and camp activities for the kindergarten students.”
Kucsera Gabriella from the Iváncsa City Public Foundation shared that the first half of the amount of donation, which was given last year, was used in renovating public facilities such as ice rinks. She revealed that the donation this year will be used for various camps and activities for the citizens of all ages.
