Give the Gift of a Smile! - collecting presents for children in need

The Mercedes-Benz plant in Kecskemét organized the Christmas present collecting campaign for the third time. In the framework of the charity program “Give the Gift of a Smile!” colleagues at the plant collected presents for families in need since the beginning of November. As many as 200 boxes were filled with presents this year and they get delivered to children in families in need by the Family and Child Wellbeing Center in Kecskemét and the KAPOCS Institute for Social and Child Protection in Kiskunfélegyháza. Managing director Mr. Christian Wolff and leading managers of the plant handed the gifts over in person at the ceremonious party. In front of the gates of the plant, a Christmas installation – symbolizing a pine tree – of a height of 11 meters and a diameter of 5.6 meters were built from firewood, which the company offered for local families in need. Mercedes-Benz delivers the 20 tons of firewood to the families with the cooperation and help of the Family and Child Wellbeing Center in Kecskemét, the City Social Public Foundation and the Kunszállás Foundation for Children.
