166 Used Schoolbags collected and filled for children in need!

On 11 December 2013 Care for Kids handed over 166 school bags and backpacks fully equipped with plenty of school supplies to the charity organization GAiN . The bags are delivered to Romania, Latvia and Ukraine to partner schools to provide children in need valuable help in everyday school life.

The school bags were donated by employees of the M+W Group at their children's schools and friends. The response within the company was overwhelming. There were over 100 partially or completely filled bags donated , and more than 50 empty bags , which could be filled with the numerous donations or by purchasing materials by Care for Kids.

 

Outstanding was beside Stuttgart the participation of M+W locations such as Ludwigshafen , Nuremberg, Dresden , Leuna , Leverkusen, Endingen and Wittenberg, who send sent bags even by mail!

 


A big thank you to all volunteers & donors!

 

Due to this success , we decided to carry out the schoolbag collection campaign throughout the year and are also registered as an official collection point on the website of GAiN , so that outsiders can drop bags and material to at the reception of M+W Group as a donation at any time. Therefore: please spread the word!
