French Site RKW SFE Donates Core Products

Frankenthal (Germany), December 20, 2017 - RKW SFE, a French Site of the RKW Group based in Ville le Marclet, is donating goods related to RKW core products to three local social associations. In the course of an intragroup competition, the employees at RKW SFE won first prize and thus the opportunity to support local social projects of their choice with donations worth 1,000 Euros.

"We wanted to donate our core products to local projects where employees of RKW SFE are already involved," says Mohamed Bounif, General Manager at RKW SFE. "Three of our employees are not only involved in local projects, but also have children themselves who are taken care of by these institutions."

RKW SFE now supports three social projects in the immediate area that take care of children and adults with disabilities: 'SAJ Flixecourt', a day-care service that undertakes social activities, 'IME les chrysalides', an institute ministering the education of children and adolescents intellectually disabled, and 'Meline avec nous', an initiative founded by the parents of Meline, a little girl with the Rett-syndrome.

Since RKW SFE primarily produces multipack shrink film for the beverage industry as used, e.g., for six-packs, the Site is donating soft drinks, juices and water with a total value of 1,000 Euros. Each organization receives over 100 six-packs of beverages that they will use for their Christmas parties or charity events.
