Corporate Volunteering: Preparing schoolbags for the new school year!

On August 10, six Knorr-Bremse employees volunteered their time to pack schoolbags for the “Bunte Münchner Kindl” organization, which provides low-income families in Munich with free school supplies. The organization has been a partner of @Knorr-Bremse Global Care e.V. since 2017.

Under the instruction of Christine Uhlrich, a volunteer from the organization 'Bunte Münchner Kindl (left), six colleagues from Knorr-Bremse helped packing schoolbags; among them Sara Wagner (right).

School bags in the storeroom are waiting to be filled and taken to the respective families.

Based on requests from Munich schools and social service centers, a team of volunteers works throughout the year to put together individual school supplies according to the need of the children. The donated materials are then either delivered to the schools or collected by the families themselves.

By lending the team a hand, our Knorr-Bremse employees made a practical contribution to ensuring that children in Munich receive equal educational opportunities regardless of their parents’ income. Three of them have opted to continue their support – another example of a corporate volunteering initative resulting in long-term commitments by individuals!
