Over the years, the families of Piraeus and neighboring municipalities have warmly embraced this initiative. This fills us with special joy, a sense of responsibility and the motivation to constantly improve our everyday contribution to the societies in which we operate. In PCT we continue to direct a significant part of our efforts to charitable causes, supporting our fellow citizens, as a token of our respect for the local community“, stated Capt.
