FIEGE employees ensure shining eyes under the Christmas tree
FIEGE is once again supporting five projects for socially disadvantaged children in the Münsterland region for Christmas. The employees of the Greven-based family business have fulfilled almost 200 children's wishes. The presents are already on their way under the Christmas tree.
A beloved Christmas tradition: The employees of the family-owned company FIEGE have once again supported socially disadvantaged children in the Münsterland region. As in every December, numerous wishes of children who are supported and cared for in various institutions in the region and whose wishes might otherwise have remained unfulfilled hung on the large Christmas tree at the FIEGE headquarters in Greven.
The campaign was organised by the Josef Fiege Foundation, which distributed almost 200 gifts to the representatives of five organisations in the course of this week: Vinzenzwerk Handorf e.V., Lernen fördern e.V., Verbund sozialtherapeutischer Einrichtungen NRW e.V. (VSE), Outlaw Kinder- und Jugendhilfe gGmbH and the Mobile Jugendarbeit Hansaviertel der Stadt Greven. The facilities now distribute the gifts to the children and their families until Christmas.
"The children's wishes were particularly varied this year," says Martina Schlottbom, board member of the Josef Fiege Foundation. From a small Puky balance bike to Lego sets or a smartwatch for the older children, everything was there." Schlottbom is pleased that the campaign was so well received by her colleagues at FIEGE. "The beauty of this Christmas campaign is that we don't just get the presents and then hand them over, but that the colleagues really run out to fulfil the children's wishes, pay for the presents out of their own pockets and wrap them very lovingly. In some gifts there is even a personal Christmas greeting for the child receiving the gift. We as a foundation only take over the wish lists that end up hanging on the tree. This year, however, there was almost nothing left for us to do and get."
