Wastepaper collection for a good cause

Mid of November the youth of the Epiphany church Gelsenkirchen, called Horst, has once again collected wastepaper from companies, private households and social institutions as part of a social event.

Despite Covid 19 and in compliance with all necessary measures, we have managed to provide containers for the wastepaper collection, already the second time of this year. Like in the first time, one container after the other filled up and was very fast filled with collected wastepaper. It is admirable to see the dedication and fun with which the young people collected the paper and pulled out the enormous amount 26.300 kg.

Special thanks go to the company and the employees of the company Lobbe, who provided containers within a very short time period. In this way we can process the wastepaper again and pay the youth facility for the collected wastepaper. The money goes to the church community, the young people and their institutions; just in time for the Christmas time.

We are very happy to be part of such a well-functioning neighborhood and thank all those involved for their great commitment, because such an achievement would not be possible without this passion.
