DEUTZ apprentices help out at a Cologne bird of prey sanctuary.
‘Time rather than money’ is the theme of the corporate volunteering day in Porz, when companies release employees from work for the day so that they can lend a hand in the community. DEUTZ is more than happy to support this project. Apprentices from the Company rolled up their sleeves once again this year and carried out some important maintenance tasks at a bird of prey sanctuary in Cologne. For more than 50 years, the Schutzgemeinschaft deutscher Wald association and the Freundeskreis Haus des Waldes association have been taking care of sick, injured, and orphaned birds of prey and owls at the sanctuary. Keen to make a difference, the DEUTZ apprentices gave a new lease of life to a raised bed and the sanctuary’s green spaces. This volunteering perfectly illustrates the importance that DEUTZ attaches to corporate social responsibility. And it always likes to support the local community. After all, it is only a short flight from DEUTZ’s headquarters in Cologne to the bird of prey sanctuary.
