Employees of the pharmaceutical contract manufacturer Aenova organized an internal donation for the Starnberger Tafel in December 2022. The official, symbolic handover of the check took place on February 2, 2023.
Starnberg, February 03, 2023 - The war in Ukraine, increased energy prices and inflation hit disadvantaged and socially weaker people particularly hard. Therefore, employees of Aenova, a global contract developer and manufacturer for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry, organized a donation initiative before Christmas. At the Aenova headquarters in Starnberg, the employees collected a sum of money for the "Starnberger Tafel", a charitable organization that gives food that would be wasted to people in need. The joint donation amounts to 1,500 euros.
On February 02, 2023 the official, symbolic check handover took place. Two employees of Aenova visited the "Starnberger Tafel", informed themselves about the work of the Tafel and helped with the food distribution.
"Picking up and sorting the food is very time-consuming and the volunteers at the Starnberger Tafel work outdoors in all weathers", reflects Dr. Irayani Berger, Vice President Corporate Quality at Aenova. "A great commitment!", adds Dr. Susanne Knabe, Head of Corporate Communication at Aenova. "We are happy to be able to help people in the local area of Aenova's headquarters in Starnberg with the joint donation of our employees."
"We are very grateful for this unforeseen donation. Such donations support us in our work. There are many needy citizens who urgently need the food we collect", explains Erika Ardelt, first chairwoman of the board at Starnberger Tafel.
