A total of five charities were chosen for the Guben and Bobingen regions, and on Tuesday, 19 May, funds totalling €11,556 were distributed among three charities in Guben. Guben plant manager Thomas Rademacher visited each of the three charities in person to present them with the cheques. This gave the Trevira representative a chance to find out more about the fantastic work carried out by the charities, and to learn more about how they have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The ‘Gubener Tafel’, a food bank run by the national Association for the Unemployed (State of Brandenburg branch) received €3,000. The food bank redistributes food that would otherwise be thrown away to people in need, relying entirely on donations to carry out its work. At the beginning of the pandemic, it had to close down its operation temporarily as hygiene requirements made it impossible to deliver food to clients. However, thanks to the creativity and commitment of the food bank’s directors, it was only a short while before 300 people could once again receive support.
