Each project received funding worth over $600 while 168 staff members came forward to take part in the campaign, voluntarily dedicating their time to projects that were dear to their hearts. For the past five years, Hettich has been supporting staff-involved projects to promote voluntary work on a lasting basis. Since 2013, 653 projects have been sponsored worldwide with a total of over $480,000.
"Some projects, whether for children, for people in need, or projects in the fields of sport or culture, are only made possible through the active help of volunteers," said Dr. Andreas Hettich, chairman of the Hettich Management Board. "This is why we welcome and encourage this involvement on the part of our staff."
