Dusseldorf, November 24, 2014. Once again C&A Germany is donating more than one million euros in the course of its Christmas donation campaign for children and families in Germany. For this purpose the C&A Foundation is providing the more than 500 C&A stores in Germany with 2,000 euros each for a social project of their choice. The donations are intended exclusively for smaller non-profit organizations, projects or initiatives in the local and regional environments of the respective stores.
“Social commitment in addition to our business operations has always been deeply embedded in C&A’s practices as a family-owned business in its sixth generation,” Thorsten Rolfes, Head of Corporate Communications C&A Europe, states. “Already in 1841, shortly after the founding of C&A, our company’s founders Clemens and August Brenninkmeijer supported people in need with donations. Keeping up their legacy, it is still important to us today to give back to the society we live in.” As a company offering affordable clothes for the entire family, our Christmas donation campaign is focused on families and children.
C&A leaves it up to the individual stores to select and coordinate suitable projects. ”Our coworkers at the stores are in direct contact with the customers and they are part of the local community themselves. They know best about the needs and which organizations are particularly dedicated when it comes to supporting children and families,” Rolfes explains.
