Aenova trainees help the needy at the Bad Aiblinger Tafel advent campaign
Bad Aibling, 17/12/2021
The Bad Aiblinger Tafel's "One More" campaign is a pre-Christmas donation initiative that has been established for years and is supported by many local grocery stores. The additional one item more that customers buy and pass on to the Tafel goes to needy people in the region. Four trainees from Swiss Caps GmbH, a member of the Aenova Group, actively helped with this year's campaign.
In times of pandemic, young people in school and training are particularly affected. Social contacts are part of their development and maturation into adulthood, and these have been particularly limited for young people over the past 20 months. But needy people also suffer from the corona-related reduced contact opportunities and the partly reduced willingness to donate. The social commitment of the young trainees therefore comes at the right moment.
The aim of the purely voluntary Tafeln is to distribute food of impeccable quality, which can no longer be used in the economic process, to people in need. Under the motto "Food where it belongs", food and also goods for daily use are collected by the Tafel Bad Aibling and given to people in need. Every needy person is helped regardless of their origin, religion, nation, possibilities and limitations.
Since October 2021, all trainees at the Aenova site in Bad Aibling have been supporting the Aiblinger Tafel. Regularly once a week, two trainees help on a rolling basis with the distribution of food and the compilation of food boxes. "Our trainees are committed young people who are interested in social issues and like to get actively involved. We are very pleased to be able to actively support the Aiblinger Tafel here," explains Stefanie Egger, training manager at the Aenova site in Bad Aibling. This commitment to the Tafel Bad Aibling fits very well into the company's concept of social responsibility on site: Swiss Caps GmbH has been working for a long time with the Wendestein Werkstätten, a Caritas workshop for people with disabilities, has been cooperating for several years with the job-related youth welfare organization "junge arbeit" Bad Aibling and regularly supports a children's home in Rosenheim.
("Tafel" is the name for charitable aid organizations in Germany that distribute food that is no longer used in the economic cycle and would otherwise be destroyed to those in need or give it away for a small fee.)
