UrBC, Yekaterinburg, December 6, 2018. Workers of EVRAZ Holding’s Nizhniy Tagil Metallurgical Plant (EVRAZ NTMK) Rail Department completed their round of Good Deeds Relay Race this month: the department’s head handed the symbolic relay baton over to the Vehicle Department, EVRAZ Holding Ural’s PR division reports.

The plant’s metallurgical workers supported Kindergarten 16 in Novoasbest, Sverdlovsk Region. They spent forty-five days getting the building ready for the winter: new window panes got installed, pipes and flooring got replaced, the heating and power supply infrastructure had to be repaired, and a firefighting equipment stand was introduced on the premises. The workers also set up a garbage-collecting point with containers. They also pulled out some old trees in the playground and put a macadam coating on the ground. In return, the children invited EVRAZ workers to see their school play.

‘We are very grateful for the workers’ help. The new plastic window frames will keep us warm in the winter,’ says the kindergaten’s head Yulia Sharova.

More than a hundred children living in Novoasbest and nearby locations go to Kindergarten 16.

This is the second year in a row that Good Deeds Relay Race is taking place. In January 2017, people working at EVRAZ NTMK’s Blast Furnace Department helped a local orphanage and challenged the plant’s Converter Shop to take on the volunteer work. Around 9,000 EVRAZ employees joined in the marathon, buying sanitary and school supplies, household appliances, and electronics and helping around with repairs and sanitary fixtures for the children.
