Progroup donates €10,000 to junior and youth fire brigades

Progroup is donating €10,000 to the association for supporting fire safety education in Bitterfeld-Wolfen. The donation will be split equally between the junior and youth fire brigades in the towns of Sandersdorf-Brehna and Bitterfeld-Wolfen.

At Progroup’s PM3 paper factory in Sandersdorf-Brehna, Maximilian Heindl, Chief Development Officer, has handed over the cheque to Claudia Elze. She has been running the association for almost 20 years and for many years has volunteered as a responsible guardian for the district youth fire brigade in the Anhalt-Bitterfeld fire brigade association for the junior and youth fire brigades.

“Fire safety is of fundamental importance in a paper factory. We count ourselves lucky that the fire brigades are there to support us instantly in an emergency,” said Maximilian Heindl. “The service that the fire fighters provide is invaluable to society. We are thrilled that here today we are able to support the work to educate the next generation about fire safety.”

Claudia Elze added, “Thanks to this generous support, we can push on with recruiting more young people – as soon as the pandemic allows – and hold our next project days such as the popular junior and youth fire brigade days, leisure activities, environmental days as well as children’s and club parties.”
