This year, the automotive supplier Brose is again donating 20,000 euros to the Coburg Social Services Office. This is the fifth year in a row that it has made such a contribution.
“The year 2020 was a very challenging one for all of us”, says Steffen Tauss, Manager Social & Health Care at the Brose Group. “The restrictions imposed on the public have changed everyday life. The pandemic has affected our private relationships, social connections and economic situation, and the year 2021 will continue to be difficult. During this time, social cohesion will be more important than ever. For that reason, our family company Brose will naturally continue its tradition of making a donation at Christmas to help Coburg citizens in need.”
“The donation will enable Coburg to provide quick, unbureaucratic assistance to people who are in trouble through no fault of their own and who do not have access to welfare benefits,” says Third Mayor Thomas Nowak. “Coburg’s Social Services Office will examine each individual case and allocate the money accordingly,” he adds.
The funds can be used to provide quick help without red tape in emergencies like a fire, water damage or an unexpected death. It is also possible to cover co-payments for pharmaceuticals or pay for essential equipment.
“We’re very thankful for this generous commitment by Brose. Last year, donations like this and contributions from the local community and businesses even enabled us to give small Christmas donations to people in need,” says Holger Diez, Head of Coburg’s Social Services Office.
