Germany: masks for donations
In the course of the Covid-19 pandemic, Real Garant decided to provide all employees with masks. The masks in Real Garant colors were sewn as part of a donation campaign by the mother of our colleague Lisa Ottmar. The proceeds went to Mercy Ships Germany e.V., an organization that provides medical aid to countries south of the Sahara, and to the Alzheimer Research Initiative e.V., a non-profit organization whose task is to research and treat Alzheimer’s disease.
As a company, it is important to us that our employees are protected in the best possible way. To make this possible by supporting a good cause is a way for us to provide help in the current situation through our own company
Helping hands at the Esslingen Youth Farm
Our employees have been involved for many years with the Youth Farm in Esslingen. Children have the chance to play, run around, build wooden huts or look after the animals, including ponies, goats and rabbits, at this activity and adventure playground, all with educational supervision. Once a year, staff swap their laptops and computer mice for a paintbrush and hammer and get stuck in at the site. They help out wherever needed. So, with every passing year, the Youth Farm looks a little bit more attractive.
