For Christmas, the Schenker colleagues in Frankfurt put in an extra effort to make this the best time of the year for kids in need. At the ATRICOM building in Frankfurt, DB Schenker employees make children’s eyes shine bright by providing gifts that made wishes come true. These wishes were collected together with Frankfurter Tafel e.V. and displayed on a Christmas tree in the atrium of the building. While the employees finished their Christmas shopping, they got an extra gift for one of the kids. Busy Schenker-elves then wrapped and collected the gifts and handed them over to the Frankfurter Tafel to give them to the kids. Fun to be a secret Santa.
Christmas is always a busy time for volunteers and that is also true for the DB Schenker community. Many, many local agencies take this merry time as an occasion to give something back to the local communities – be it via a wish tree in Germany or boxed surprises in Romania, by conducting food and toy drives in the US, by raising money for Christmas presents in China or by donating time as in the Czech Republic, to name just some examples.
