Donated restaurant vouchers

Since all our employees have been working from home for several weeks now, they found themselves unable to use their meal vouchers. 250 employees from NEW WORK SE and its subsidiaries chose to donate their meal vouchers to good causes. As a result, more than 20,000 euros were collected, which will go to Hamburg’s “Kochen für Helden” and “von Mensch zu Mensch” initiatives, as well as to “die Münchner Tafel” and to Vienna’s Caritas Corona Initiative.
