Sumitomo (SHI) Demag is supporting selected charity projects in Romania during the festive period. Locals of the country’s Bistrita Nasaud district will receive a donation of money from the company’s management and essential items in the form of a parcel campaign from the workforce.
The management of Sumitomo (SHI) Demag will be making a Christmas donation to the "Tasuleasa Social" association. Tasuleasa Social provides environmental and educational aid to children and young people through shared projects. The donation will be used for purchasing an industrial washing machine.
In addition, the workforce of Sumitomo (SHI) Demag at the German plants in Wiehe, Thuringia and in Schwaig has been involved in a parcel campaign for the Romanian population. A trailer full of parcels containing foodstuffs, hygiene products and writing materials was collected directly from Schwaig on 10 December 2013. Both the donation and the Christmas parcels are being coordinated by the local branch of "Die Johanniter" in Lauf a.d. Pegnitz. The parcels will be sent on their way by truck on 26 December and will be reliably distributed to the needy families.
