  • Local Children Receive Christmas Gifts from Team Lozorno

    ​The Lozorno Operations team organized a charitable activity to benefit their local community. The team sponsored children from a local Children’s Home in Banská Bystrica, Slovakia.

So our team made that their mission – one that quickly grew.
