Doing charity with vouchers
epay employees in Germany donate Rossmann vouchers to local social institutions
In keeping with the motto “Be an epay wish fulfiller – Make others happy!”, many employees at epay, the leading international full-service payment provider and specialist for voucher and payment solutions, got involved to give socially disadvantaged fellow human beings a little joy for the holidays.
This year, two social institutions at the Martinsried site near Munich are supported by the Christmas campaign with the donation of vouchers for shopping at the drugstore chain Rossmann. The recipients of the vouchers are the residents of the Gauting girls’ home and customers and volunteers of the Klawotte social department store in Martinsried. A total of 164 vouchers were on the wish list of the girls’ home and Klawotte – all provided by personal donations from epay employees.
All employees of epay wish the recipients a lot of fun with the donated vouchers while shopping at Rossmann as well as a Merry Christmas and a healthy New Year 2021!
Dr. Markus Landrock, CEO of epay, already handed over the vouchers to Mrs. Christina Einhellig from the social department store Klawotte on behalf of all donors at epay. The handover to the girls’ home in Gauting will follow.
Additional information about the social institutions
epay‘s Corporate Social Responsibility department created the campaign for the social department store and the girls’ home in cooperation with the non-profit foundation Gute-Tat. Since 2007, the foundation has been offering volunteers in Munich & the region the opportunity to get involved in voluntary work via an online platform. Apart from the pure switching the donation sees its task in the constant advancement and stabilization of the citizen commitment in all ranges of the society.
The Caritas Girls’ Home in Gauting
The Caritas Girls’ Home offers therapeutic care for female adolescents from the age of 14 until they reach the age of majority and integrates different, interlocking residential, support, therapeutic and educational services under one roof: the core is formed by eight inpatient, therapeutic residential groups on the facility grounds in Gauting. A central component of the girls’ home in Gauting is the state-recognized, private schools with a focus on emotional and social development.
The Klawotte social department store in Martinsried
The Klawotte in Martinsried, which opened in September 2012, is a small “social department store” where, in principle, anyone can shop. A skirt costs about four euros and t-shirts are available for as little as two euros. For a cuddly toy, you often pay no more than two euros. For this reason, a large proportion of the customers come from socially disadvantaged backgrounds – many senior citizens and people who also get their food from the local food bank. 90 particularly needy people can shop at a 50% reduced price thanks to a customer card. This group of customers will now receive presents as part of the epay Christmas campaign, together with the 14 Klawotte volunteers who make such a project possible in the first place through their commitment.
