HS Timber Group’s CSR actions in the context of COVID-19
Responsibility for the regions in which we operate is part of our mission and vision. With our ‘Together!’Initiative, we now make a direct contribution and support the actions of local organizations in the fight against COVID-19. In times like these, social cohesion is needed more than ever, which is why we contribute directly where it is needed. Especially in this unpredictable time where we need to keep spatial distance, socially we move even more closer -Together!

In December, HS Timber Group continues its ‘Together!’Initiative, now with a focus on education.
In the current social context, when the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic restricted physical access to schools in Romania, the factories that HS Timber Group operates in Romania join local communities and donate more than 1,000 tablets (including one-year paid Internet subscription) to 32 schools in 13 counties. The beneficiaries of the donation are socially-disadvantaged children who do not have adequate equipment to participate in the online educational process.
