OMK and OMK-Uchastiye Foundation to Buy Food Care Packages for Vyksa Residents in Difficulty Because of Coronavirus Quarantine

The United Metallurgical Company (AO OMK, Moscow) and the OMK-Uchastiye Charity Foundation have partnered with the local executive, the public social protective services, and the Vyksa Diocese to help Vyksa residents finding themselves in difficult circumstances during the voluntary confinement. The Company and the Foundation will also assist the Vyksa volunteer center operating as part of the #Together national self-help drive.

OMK and the Foundation will purchase food care packages for Vyksa's older people without close family and low-income families finding themselves in difficult circumstances because of the medical emergency. They will be able to get these care packages by contacting the volunteer center (phone: +7 831-77 6-59-77) or the Vyksa Diocese department of social services (phone: + 7 831-77 6-55-88).

In addition, the OMK-Uchastiye Foundation and Vyksa Steel Works (an OMK subsidiary) will donate face masks, gloves, sanitizer, and non-contact thermometers to assure that volunteers can operate without interruption.

"It is a difficult time, and it is important to join forces and offer support to those that are in need. We thank everyone who has already joined the national #Together drive, such as volunteers, social partners, non-profits, and those that have not joined us yet. There is a lot yet to be done. That is why it is important for everyone to contribute", noted OMK-Uchastiye Charity Foundation Supervisory Board Chair Irina Sedykh.

The national #Together drive was organized by the National People's Front, the Medical Volunteers National Movement, the Volunteers of Russia Central Information System (dobro.ru), and Russian volunteer organizations.
