High Flying Airport
"Modrzew" Association for Social Integration
Since the very beginning of its operation, Lublin Airport has been involved in social and community initiatives. On 31 July 2013, Vice President of Lublin Airport Dariusz Krzowski signed an agreement with the Modrzew Association for Social Integration. Pursuant to the agreement, the airport "lent" the association a designated parking space in the airport parking lot - the proceeds from the parking tickets will be transferred to the special fund: the High Flying Scholarship Fund. The idea behind the fund is to promote the most hard-working and gifted students of junior high schools, high schools and universities from the Świdnik region. The scholarship can be applied for by students who excel in education, sports or pro-community activities. Yet, this is not the only criterion. A potential scholarship winner can be a student of an impoverished family whose parents' financial status does not allow his or her education or skill development. The money from the scholarship can be used in a variety of ways, e.g. to buy a musical instrument, pay for a foreign language course or even buy new shoes and warm clothing for the winter season to help children reach school without running the risk of illness.
"We are pleased to be able to be part of this initiative. Any activities related to social responsibility are among out priorities, and we are more than happy that we can help the needy. We are gradually implementing an SR strategy of our company," says Piotr Jankowski, Lublin Airport spokesman.
The concluded agreement is valid for one year.
