MEDER donates to special vocational school

Managing Director Regine Meder doubles the proceeds of the Christmas raffle


Schwenningen company KURT MEDER GmbH donates 1,800 euros for the construction of special vocational school St. Klara in Heiligenbronn. The money comes from the proceeds of the raffle held during the spring manufacturer's Christmas party for employees.

Schwenningen. It has become a good tradition by now: the trainees at Schwenningen company Kurt Meder GmbH organize a big Christmas party for the workforce. The proceeds are doubled by company boss Regine Meder and donated to a charitable organization.

Year after year, the Christmas party for 190 employees of KURT MEDER GmbH is a very special success story: the trainees gain practical experience organizing the party, while the employees get to enjoy a convivial Christmas celebration with great prizes in the Christmas raffle. The proceeds this year go to the Stiftung St. Franziskus foundation in Heiligenbronn.

But that's not all: as every year, Managing Director Regine Meder doubled the amount donated. The donation of 1,823 euros has now been presented by the trainees together with Head of Commercial Training David Silva to the Stiftung St. Franziskus foundation in Heiligenbronn. The foundation is currently building a new special vocational school for young people with disabilities and learning difficulties, for which it has launched the fundraising campaign "We're going to school. Why not join us?" The donation from the Meder trainees and their management go to fund. "The fundraising campaign is one of many activities that mark the very special atmosphere and spirit of cooperation within our company. Whatever the area and whatever the level, whether in production or in management, everyone in our organization has their share of a positive future," says Managing Director Magnus Mauch, explaining the background to the campaign.

As part of the presentation of the check in Heiligenbronn, the MEDER trainees were welcomed by Ewald Graf and Julia Müller from the foundation's communication unit, and during a tour through the grounds were introduced to the services offered by the foundation for people with disabilities, and also the history of the Heiligenbronn monastery and its origins in the tradition of the pilgrimage. They also caught a glimpse of the completed shell of the new St. Klara vocational school. At lunch in Elisabetha-Glöckler hall, the trainees were also given a vivid insight into the everyday life of the facility, which includes workshops, training establishments, residential homes, schools and a boarding school.
