From Eichstätt to Ingolstadt to Neuburg/Schrobenhausen and Pfaffenhofen: No matter where, the participating Audi employees did their all in keeping with this year’s motto. Together with residents of the St. Elisabeth Caritas Senior Citizens Home, for example, they will go on a trip to the weekly market in Eichstätt and then stop for a pre-lunch drink. At the Wasserstern Zoo in Ingolstadt, volunteers will apply trowels and paint brushes during construction and paintwork. Others will accompany Hollerhaus residents to the Audi Museum Mobile and give individual guided tours through the museum. Even support for the youngest is not neglected on Audi Volunteers’ Day. In the St. Mauritius Kindergarten in Bergheim, Audi employees will actively help to build a playground with a barefoot path and a small wood workshop.
“Our employees are not slowing down with their voluntary commitment to projects and people in the region – they always put their heart and soul into Audi Volunteers’ Day. That makes us very proud,” says Audi Board of Management Member for Human Resources Wendelin Göbel. And Karola Frank, works council member and deputy chairwoman of the IG Metall trust-body management, adds: “On Volunteers’ Day, Audi people assume social responsibility in the region. We from the works council see this great commitment of our colleagues as a role model.”
Audi Volunteers’ Day is part of the Audi Matter of Honor initiative and takes place every year alternately at the two German sites in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm, as well as at Audi Hungaria in Győr. The brand with the Four Rings thus assumes social responsibility and promotes and supports the social commitment of its employees. In addition to Volunteers’ Day, AUDI AG departments can support social projects in the region for one day all year round within the framework of Team Activities.
Note for the media: Current photos of Audi Volunteers’ Day 2019 will be available to download on Saturday, May 18 as of approximately 6 p.m. at www.audi-mediacenter.com.
