The fight against the coronavirus has led Karlowsky Fashion to donate 7,000 pieces of scrubs to the German Red Cross Regional Association of Magdeburg Jerichower Land.
Frank Ruth, managing director of the DRK regional association Magdeburg-Jerichower Land, said: “We are very grateful to Karlowsky Fashion for their support. Our 420 nursing staff in the four social stations, two day care facilities, six senior housing and senior housing are currently working under difficult conditions and see the social commitment of Karlowsky Fashion as motivation and thanks at the same time to continue to be there for the people with the same passion as they have done so far. I am particularly pleased that the nursing staff can now do this in new work clothes.”
A total of eight pallets were needed to safely pack the 7,000 smocks in all sizes for transport. The first delivery was handed over to the nursing staff there on Monday, May 4. Thomas Karlowsky, managing director, and his son Niels Karlowsky, head of marketing, IT and business development, were present during the handover.
The amount of the donation amounted to a total of €150,000 euros. Mr Ruth added: “A sum that is not self-evident and certainly not every day.”
