On 30 November, less than 60 days before the 32nd Grand Finale fundraiser, the Collection Boxes were presented during a press conference. Just this year, there were 226,000 boxes produced. The 26-year partnership between the GOCC Foundation and Stora Enso has resulted in the production of 3.6 million Collection Boxes.

We proudly announce that we will support the 32nd Grand Finale of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity! As a cardboard box manufacturer, we believe that each collection box filled with generous donations serves not only as a symbol of our engagement, but also as a token of solidarity and care for others. It has been 26 years since we, together with the GOCC, began creating an unforgettable melody of help, giving hope and support wherever it is most needed. We are honoured to be part of this beautiful initiative and “do good for people and the planet”.

The cardboard boxes manufactured by Stora Enso have raised millions, if not a billion zlotys. We went all the way from very simple layouts to beautifully designed, beaming with colours Collection Boxes that our volunteers carry around in Poland and all around the world. They are safe, durable, and serve a good cause! For the past few years, we have distributed our Collection Boxes not only among individual volunteers, but also among different chain stores. It shows how the Orchestra unites us all!
