“The Child Protection Association is a key pillar of our society. Its commitment to helping those who are particularly vulnerable cannot be praised highly enough. We are delighted that we can make a contribution here to ensure that those seeking help and advice will continue to receive the support they need in the future,” says Heindl.
Anja Bischoff-Fichtner, deputy director of Landau–SÜW Child Protection Association, emphasises how important the donation is for its work: “An institution like the Child Protection Association really values the regular support it receives to sustain it for the long term. The donation from Progroup is a very important contribution for us that will allow us to support children, young people and their parents who face difficult situations well into the future.”
The donation is based on the traditional Progroup Christmas raffle for employees. The proceeds from the previous years in 2020 and 2021 have been doubled by the company. This means that a round donation of €5,000 can be handed over.
Supporting social projects is a matter that is very close to Progroup’s heart. This is why the company likes to participate in public life, is keen to engage in dialogue and is committed to supporting the common good at a local level. It gets involved by supporting projects which support children and young people.
