Christmas is less than two months away. Without question, the Christmas season will be different this year, perhaps less contemplative or marked by sorrow. It's hard to imagine that many children in the world feel this way every year.
And that is exactly why we are saying NOW FIRST! Schnellecke is once again taking part and bringing Christmas parcels to remote and rural areas of Eastern Europe to make children's eyes light up. The basic idea of the campaign is "Children help children". Kindergarten and school children in Germany (with the support of their parents) pack a gift for another child. During the Christmas season, they learn a lot about the importance of sharing, giving and being given presents, and can thus learn and experience for themselves the joy that comes from being able to help.
Our Christmas truck brings the packages to Ukraine as part of the large Christmas package convoy, where this year they cannot be distributed directly to the children in the usual way. Instead, they will be received by selected local organizations for further distribution in order to comply with current hygiene and distance regulations.
At our regional collection point at Schnellecke Transportlogistik GmbH Braunschweig, we will accept packages until 20.11.2020, and at the branch office in Zwickau, the last acceptance is scheduled for 06.11.2020.
To cover transport and toll costs, we ask for a donation of €2 per parcel directly at the collection point.
Last year we collected over 1,000 parcels, our personal goal for this year is 2,000 parcels so that there is not an inch of space left on the trailer when we leave. So help diligently, everyone is welcome to join in the action.
