Donations Instead of Christmas Presents

Michelstadt, January 7, 2016 – Instead of giving customers and business partners Christ­mas presents, the RKW Michelstadt Site is donating EUR 800 to charitable organizations. Half of this went to the voluntary fire service in Michelstadt and the other half to the Ger­man Red Cross in Erbach.

The General Manager RKW Michelstadt, Sven Schrothe, is sure that RKW’s customers and business partners endorse the idea of supporting charities based in the Site’s region at Christmas. The voluntary fire service in Michelstadt and the German Red Cross in Erbach have been working together with the RKW Michelstadt Site for years. The voluntary fire service is involved in large-scale exercises, e.g., in evacuation measures during fire alarms, and the German Red Cross in the training of company first-aiders.

At an official ceremony in Michelstadt, Gerd Beller from the voluntary fire service was presented with the RKW donation. The money will be used for junior fire service expenditures. The German Red Cross in Erbach will use the donation for its first-aider training activities.
