Our Christmas charity effort in favour of Petri & Eichen, Diakonische Kinder- und Jugendhilfe Bremen

14 January 2021 Sustainability

"Christmas involves caring for one's fellow human beings, for charitiy’s sake." This basic idea triggered a group of Lamotte employees who took care of Christmas festivities in our company in the "Corona Year 2020". 

The result was not only a "Christmas party in a box" for every colleague, but also the idea of employees fulfilling children's Christmas wishes, which we received from Petri & Eichen, Diakonische Kinder- und Jugendhilfe Bremen gGmbH. Petri & Eichen is a well established children’s and youth welfare organization. From the end of November 2020, 120 wish cards were displayed in our office corridors. It took only two weeks until each card had found a "wish sponsor", and the sponsors went to the (virtual) store to make an unknown young person happy - for example with a sweatpant or a very precisely defined game. 

On December 22, Hermann Bosse, Managing Director of Henry Lamotte Oils, and several colleagues handed over 120 gifts and a company donation to Petri & Eichen.  

The well established institution Petri & Eichen, Diakonische Kinder- und  Jugendhilfe Bremen offers help for children, young people and their families in Bremen and the surrounding area. The offers include 25 residential groups and 7 day groups, 12 outpatient teams, 15 offers of open youth work and 6 day-care centres. The aim of the work is to increase the confidence of the children and young people to master challenges by their own efforts. The donations are used to develop additional offers for the children and young people.
