Workforce and Bauer-Walser AG donate for flood victims
The flood disaster in Germany left no one indifferent, it was and is always a topic of conversation among the employees of Bauer-Walser
AG. So the wish arose as a company to contribute with a donation and thus make a small contribution to the support of the people and regions affected. The initiative of the district council meeting
with the Enzkreis donation campaign came at just the right time, which specifically supports the town of Insul in Rhineland-Palatinate, as helpers from the Enzkreis have already helped actively and
No sooner said than done… ..the workforce was informed about the measure by means of an appeal for donations. The campaign immediately
met with great willingness and even employees who had already supported the flood victims on other channels often added an additional amount. It was also emphasized again and again that the amount of
the donation does not play a role, everyone could decide for themselves.
In the end, 1,094 euros were collected in the workforce, a proud amount !!!!
The management is also enthusiastic about the campaign, so the board of directors decided to increase the amount by € 906.
At the end of August, € 2,000 could then be transferred to the “Flood Aid Enz” account.
We are pleased that those affected can be helped directly with this money. Because the donations, regardless of the amount, give the
people affected hope, directly of course, because some of the most essential existential things are missing, but they also give the tentative confidence to dive back into normal life and the memories
of the terrible natural disaster slowly fade allow.
Therefore a big thank you to all donors
