Special donations for good causes: 40 payouts of EUR 500 for projects close to our employees’ hearts

Kindergartens, sport clubs and cultural sites are just some of the beneficiaries of the generous donations offered under the OeTTINGER Brewery personnel development program, which for many years now has supported colleagues who volunteer at clubs and organizations in the areas surrounding our breweries. In light of the huge number of applications we have received from Oettingen and Walldorf since 2014, we have now decided to make some special donations. In total, 40 voluntary projects have been supported to the tune of EUR 500 each.

Brewery boss Pia Kollmar says: “Over 400 employees work at the brewery headquarters in Oettingen and our logistics center in Walldorf: That’s almost half of the entire workforce across all our sites. Many of these people are involved in voluntary work in their free time. As part of our commitment to sustainability and society as a whole, we are of course delighted to continue supporting local voluntary projects and truly value the diversity of the selected projects.”

OeTTINGER an enthusiastic advocate of volunteering

Let us introduce you now to four employees representing local voluntary projects, who each received a check worth EUR 500 as part of the special donations.

One of the lucky winners was Martin Oberhauser (Bottling). He is an active member of the UL aircraft club Turtelberg-Fliegern Geilsheim and will spend the money on a cylinder lawnmower for the upkeep of the runway.

Stefan Rauer (Bottling) also had cause for celebration. He will be using his donation to help the Verein Glühwürmchen, as association based in Tapfheim that supports children suffering from cancer and other serious/chronic illnesses as well as their families.

A further EUR 500 is going to the Donau-Ries Authors’ Association, in which Günter Schäfer (IT Department) participates with his own writing projects. He reached out to this project in order to help foster the next generation of writing talent in the region.

With Marie Engelhardt (Accounts Payable), things are getting musical! She is a member of the town orchestra D‘Riaser Oettingen e.V. and also has her sights set on developing and promoting the next generation of talent.
