Truma Christmas Donation
10,000 euros for a child and youth welfare institution09.12.2016
This year again Truma does not send out Christmas presents to customers and business partners. Instead the company is donating 10,000 euros to the child and youth welfare institution Schloss Zinneberg in Glonn near Munich. They operate a curative home for girls and women, a middle school and a vocational school, an open all-day school and a curative day-care centre and nursery.
The institution is run by the Sisters of the Good Shepherd who use the donation to buy a new oven for the bakery where 12 young people with psychosocial problems are trained to be housekeepers and skilled workers in the hotel and restaurant sector. They require intensive individual supervision and encouragement, something they would not receive in normal training organisations.
“The previous oven was more than 40 years old and finally broke down for good just before the advent period,” explains Sister Christophora Eckl. Truma’s donations are specifically intended to help out in cases like this: “We want to help institutions close to us with whom we have worked for many years and which urgently need financial support for specific projects,” says Robert Strauß, managing director of Truma. The new oven means that the apprentices can continue to be trained and, of course, get on with their Christmas baking.
