On so-called "Social Days", companies get involved for the common good and do voluntary work. As part of this campaign, our commercial and industrial apprentices were involved with the Kindertafel in Wuppertal.
Over two days, they provided the organization with active support in sorting donated food in the warehouse, painting the walls of the new reading room, setting up closets, sorting toys and organizing them in the new furniture. Last but not least, the apprentices also started a fundraising campaign among our employees.
This has been an interesting and significant experience, everyone should have done it once. We were surprised to see how much work and organization goes into running a food bank on a daily basis.
Our apprentices' commitment is a wonderful win-win situation: On the one hand, the Kindertafel receives much-needed support for its important projects and can inspire young people for the good cause. On the other hand, our young talents get to know the day-to-day work of a food bank and they learn what motivates people to come here. Furthermore, they are living an important part of our corporate culture — namely the social commitment for and with the region that is so close to our hearts.
Our team at the Tafel Wuppertal and the Kindertafel is looking forward to people who want to volunteer their time. Everyone is welcome to contribute their skills — and of course the team is also happy to receive donations of food or clothing in good condition, as well as furniture for the social department store run by the association.
