A Christmas tree full of wishes
Christmas is the time of loving your neighbor. For this reason some of OVB’s employees made the wishes of those who need it the most come true: children in need.
The large Christmas tree in OVB’s lobby in Cologne looked especially festive this year: in addition to colorful balls and candles, it was also decorated with lovingly crafted wish lists. 20 children under the care of Sommerberg, a worker’s welfare institution for children's, youth, family, and integration aid, had written down their heart's desires on pieces of paper.
The OVB employees then "picked" the wish lists from the tree and were able to give the respective child his/her desired present. There was no dithering: the wish lists were gone in no time and 20 children were able to look forward to Christmas even more.
Thomas Hücker, COO of the OVB Holding AG, was also happy about the positive resonance, "This is a very beautiful event, which our employees supported with great commitment. It just goes to show how much people simply feel connected".Back
