Christmas presents for the refugees in Dietfurt
SPANGLER employees hand over presents
Exceptional idea of the staff Christmas donation
Töging, 18 December 2014 – Every year, the workforce of SPANGLER GMBH donates to a good cause on Christmas. This year, the employees had an exceptional idea. They asked the responsible for integration in Dietfurt and operator of the refugee home to create a wish list of the inhabitants.
Unexpectedly small wishes
This wish list was publicized in the company and everyone could make a donation of used or new bought things. Christina Deyerler and Christine Heimisch, who organized the donation campaign: „We had expected CDs, games or other Christmas presents typically for us.” However, we found the simplest wishes on the list: above all, warm winter jackets, winter shoes, pyjamas or a manicure or shaving set for women. Christina Deyerler: “These simple wishes showed us the poverty of the people. Therefore, the readiness of my colleagues to donate was this large.”
All presents had been wrapped individually and collected under the Christmas tree in the company in Töging. Five inhabitants from the asylum received the presents in place of all refugees today. Managing Director Tina Lambert guided the guests through the house and took time to show them the control panel manufacturing and further departments of SPANGLER. Even she is glad about the donation campaign of the employees: “All employees together contributed to fulfill the wishes.”
Voucher for shopping in the shops of Dietfurt
Even the Kunz/Sedlmeier GbR and the SPANGLER GMBH stood up for the refugees and donated vouchers together. With the voucher, the refugees can buy in selected, local shops. The official handover of these vouchers will take place on the Christmas celebration of SPANGLER.
