We share the love at Christmas – its donation time!
One of the most important Christmas traditions here at Universal Transport Group is to support various charitable projects, including the children’s cancer project “Fruchtalarm” and the North Rhine-Westphalian “Aktion Lichtblicke”.
For the third year in a row, Universal Transport is donating to the “Fruchtalarm”. Once a week, the volunteers visit 33 children’s cancer wards and oncological rehabilitation clinics across Germany with their mobile children’s cocktail bar. The colorful fruit cocktails bring some variety and fun to the wards, they also stimualte the childrens creativity and, above all, give the young patients some self-determination.
„The ‘Fruchtalarm’ enables children and their relatives to escape the stressful everyday routine for a few hours. It is close to our hearts to support the dedicated team, with our donation we can make our contribution to putting a smile on the childrens faces,” says Holger Dechant, Managing Director of the Gruber Logistics subsidiary Universal Transport, who this year presented the generous donation to “Fruchtalarm” Managing Director Carmen-Eliza Schilling.
“For the first time this year we have also had a children’s hospice in our program. In order to be able to interact with all children and young people there, we had to develop a very special smell and feelings concepts in addition to our mobile children’s cocktail bar. A time-consuming and costly task, but very worthwhile and only possible thanks to supporters like Universal Transport,” says Carmen-Eliza Schilling happily. The “fruit alarm” is already in touch with other hospices to expand their offer to more places and in addition, a possible extension to other European countries, such as the Czech Republic, is being looked at. Universal Transport will accompany the campaign as it continues.
As for many years, Universal Transport has been taking part in the “Aktion Lichtblicke” again. Whether its signed football shirts or a meet & greet with well-known artists: everything that is auctioned off is for a good cause. Since 1998 the “Aktion Lichtblicke” has been supporting children, young people and families who are in material, financial or emotional need. Universal Transport is auctioning off the rare opportunity to accompany a heavy-duty transport . This raised a great 350 Euros this year and Universal Transport topsped this up and donates a total of 1000 Euros to this amazing charity.
