KGAL Social Day – Giving time instead of money
KGAL is a value-oriented company. For us, value orientation means social responsibility. In 2009, the KGAL Aid Fund came to life. With it, we have financed charitable projects. However, social engagement for us reaches beyond financial support. So in 2015 we replaced the KGAL Aid Fund with the KGAL Social Day.
Several times a year, five to eight KGAL employees volunteer one whole day of their time to support a good cause. They do so in different ways: renovating a facility for handicapped persons, taking excursions in nature with elderly in need of help, setting up a common room in refugee accommodations. This way, KGAL supports charitable organisations that need specific aid.
