Birthday present: Vaillant hands donation to Mothers Group Mama mia
- Mothers Group Mama mia celebrates 10th birthday
- Vaillant donates more than €3,000
The employees of the heating, ventilation and climate control technology manufacturer Vaillant support the Mothers Group Mama mia of the Remscheid Child Protection Association. Marking the 10th anniversary of the group, Dr Jens Wichtermann, Director Corporate Communications, Sustainability Management and Policy at the Vaillant Group, handed a donation of €3,335,20 to Annette Stevens, Head of the Mothers Group Mama mia, and to Karl-Richard Ponsar, Chairman of the Remscheid Child Protection Association. The company’s employees donated the money at a tombola draw during the staff party in mid-April 2015. “With its offers of support for young mothers, the Mothers Group Mama mia makes an important social contribution in Remscheid. It’s important for us to promote this project. As part of our sustainability strategy we support social and cultural facilities at Vaillant Group sites,” Wichtermann said.
Annette Stevens and Karl-Richard Ponsar were very happy over the birthday present, saying: ”Our prevention project is still financed only by donations, and we are pleased when our work with mothers and children is so appreciated.” On coming Friday, 4 September 2015, the Mothers Group Mama mia will officially celebrate its 10th birthday. Presents in the form of a donation are doubly valuable. Until 31 October 2015 the Bethe Foundation will double all donations to the Mothers Group Mama mia to a total of €7,500.
