Künzelsau. Within the framework of a worldwide ride-along campaign, Würth customers were given the opportunity to purchase a limited-edition magazine screwdriver. For every screwdriver sold, the Würth Group donated one euro to UNICEF.
For more than 30 years, R.W. WORKOUT Week has been firm part of the cooperation between in-house staff and sales force of the Würth Group companies. During this ride-along campaign, in-house employees accompany sales representatives on their daily customer visits. This does not only help their cooperation but also gives sales force and customers the chance to suggest improvements and ideas to in-house staff in personal conversations. This year, a donation campaign and a limited-edition product were integrated in R.W. WORKOUT Week. Würth customers could purchase a magazine screwdriver with signature of Professor Reinhold Würth and matching belt pouch. For each screwdriver of this limited edition sold, one euro is donated to UNICEF.
In this way, 120,000 euros were collected in worldwide sales activities. Bettina Würth, Chairwomen of the Advisory Board of the Würth Group, handed over the symbolic check to UNICEF on Tuesday. “It is part of our corporate culture to get involved and make a social contribution. Therefore, I am particularly delighted that this donation can be made thanks to the commitment of different companies of the Würth Group. This proves once more that our corporate culture is lived in all companies,” explains Bettina Würth.
The donation will benefit a social project in the Philippines supported by UNICEF. The Molave Youth Home in Quezon City looks after children and adolescents who came into conflict with the law and helps them reintegrate into society and try a new beginning.
