Masterflex SE and the "Gelsenkirchener Tafel" have had a close relationship for several years. The company has made it its business to support needy children in the region. It has almost become a tradition that a fundraising campaign is launched for the annual B2RUN. This provides even more motivation for the employees to really put their sporting energy into the company run. Once a year, many sporting colleagues get together and run on the „B2RUN“ in the "Veltins Arena" in Gelsenkirchen for a good cause.
For each runner who starts, Masterflex donates 100 € to the the local children's charity "Gelsenkirchener Kindertafel". So this year again 2000 € have been collected due to the great commitment of the staff. Today the donation was symbolically handed over to the managing director Hartwig Szymiczek and the chairwoman of the board, Christine Bartsch.
The money will go where it is needed! At the initiative "sandwiches for lunch", which was founded in 2006, about 2000 loaves of bread together with fruit such as bananas, apples or vegetables are given to primary and special schools every week. The snacks are handed out to children who would otherwise have to spend their day at school without food.
A team of 15 volunteers takes care of preparation, portioning and delivery from 6.30 a.m. every day. The groceries are financed exclusively by donations, because the food for the children is purchased separately and not put together from food donations.
Every year we look forward to making a contribution to the well-being of the children of our region.
