BOLL employees support the Diakonisches Werk's wish tree campaign
Meppen. This year, as usual, there is a large, decorated Christmas tree at the headquarters of the BOLL forwarding company in Meppen. But unlike usual, there are envelopes with wish lists hanging from the branches, in addition to green and white Christmas baubles. These are part of the "Wish Tree" campaign of the Diakonisches Werk Emsland-Bentheim and are intended to give families from the region who live on the edge of the subsistence level, and especially their children, a little joy at Christmas.
Many employees of the BOLL freight forwarding company were enthusiastic about the campaign and took part in order to give needy people a Christmas gift worth 20 euros. "Unfortunately, it is not a matter of course for all children and adults to receive a Christmas present. People are often not aware of this. I think it's important to look and help when you have the opportunity," says Julia Bachmann, an employee of the logistics service provider in Emsland, who is also convinced by the campaign.
Corona was and is the dominant topic this year. Especially against this background, Ulrich Boll, spokesman of the management board, is enthusiastic about the social commitment of his employees. "I think it's great that the willingness to donate is so great even in times of crisis," says Boll. For example, after only two days, the Diakonie's wish lists were taken away by the employees to fulfil the wishes indicated on them.
