Across the globe, colleagues from Hettich operating bases have been involved in various projects within the ”Hettich Ehrenamt 2022” volunteering campaign. Each receiving funding worth € 500, the Hettich Group has helped no fewer than 119 projects in Germany, the Czech Republic, Australia and the United Kingdom, making out donation cheques totalling € 59,500. Of this, € 37,000 alone went to projects in Germany which involve Hettich colleagues.
Anyone working at Hettich can apply for funding in aid of projects they do voluntary work for. Funding in the amount of € 500 go to projects related to social matters, education, science, nutrition, exercise, culture and the environment.
”We are absolutely delighted to have once again been able to give meaningful support to numerous projects within our ’Hettich Ehrenamt’ volunteering campaign. The tremendous amount of positive feedback we have had from associations, clubs and societies shows we are making a valuable contribution,” says Laura-Sophie Putschies, Corporate Communications at Hettich.
