“Offenbach fire brigade is an important, long-standing partner of Progroup. The service that the fire fighters provide is invaluable to society. We are thrilled that we can also support the work to educate the next generation about fire safety,” says Jessika Tirandazi in handing over the donation.
“For us, this generous donation is more than just recognition of what we do because we can actually use it to fund our youth work and the future,” emphasises Fabian Wingerter. The money will be used to fund the purchase of a new trailer for the youth fire brigade to practise on.
The donation is based on the traditional Progroup Christmas raffle for employees. The proceeds from 2022 were more than doubled by the family-run company. This means that a round donation of 3,500 euros can be handed over.
As a company that operates at 14 sites in six countries, Progroup is a part of many regions in Central Europe. The company benefits from the existing infrastructure as well as lots of committed and well-trained employees.
As a good neighbour, Progroup is keen to give something back to these communities. This is why the company likes to participate in public life and is committed to supporting the common good at a local level.
