Doppstadt supports charity work
In this spirit we have refrained from giving Christmas presents and have donated the money to various charity organizations in the Velbert region.
The spare parts and service department headed by Holger Stranzenbach has masterminded and coordinated the campaign. The following charities received a donation of 1.500 €:
- Bergisches Kinder- und Jugendhospiz (= hospice for children and adolescents) Burgholz in Wuppertal. Inaugurated in 2015, the hospice accomodates gravely ill children, adolescents and young adults and their families
- Evangelische Kirchengemeinde (= Protestant congregation) Langenberg. Has initiated the project „Wunschbaum 2018“ (= wish tree) to fulfil Christmas wishes of children hailing from families affected by poverty
- Bochum-based PLANB Ruhr e.V., an intercultural organization dedicated to assisting children, adolescents and families in many ways
The cheques have been handed over already. We thank the charities mentioned for their outstanding commitment and are proud to support their work!
