RKW Group Supports Social Projects Worldwide

Donations Instead of Christmas Gifts

Frankenthal (Germany), December 1, 2017 - As in previous years, the RKW Group has again decided to support local charitable institutions worldwide instead of giving Christmas presents. In so doing, donations amounting to around 23,000 Euros are collected at our 20+ global locations, and then distributed locally.

It's been a tradition at RKW for many years: Once again, the company is dispensing with Christmas presents to customers and business partners across the globe and instead donating to social causes. By doing so, the RKW Group's Sites will be able to distribute a total of around 23,000 Euros to various local institutions.

The St. Josef Home for Children and Young Adults in Mannheim, for example, is pleased to receive support this year, which will help finance activities advocating the young.

For several years now, RKW employees at the Frankenthal Headquarters have supported the Catholic St. Josef Home for Children and Young Adults in Mannheim. Now, management of the world's leading film manufacturer is also joining in, by making a donation in December 2017.

A total of 80 children and adolescents live in residential groups and flat-sharing communities at the St. Josef Home for Children and Young Adults. The donations are used to finance projects that help improve the quality of life and future prospects of children and young people.

For many years now, RKW Group's global locations have been committed to local charitable causes, living up to the company's corporate values of respect and reliability.
