Exertis Pro AV Makes Dreams Come True in K19 Herzenssache Children’s Centre in Germany
Exertis Pro AV has been a partner of the K19 Herzenssache Children’s Centre in Geislingen since September 2021. As part of the Christmas campaign 2021, the first donation cheque of the long-term cooperation was now handed over.
The K19 Children’s Centre is a contact point for children and teenagers of all origins, nationalities and religions and offers disadvantaged children between the ages of six and 12 special after-school care services in the afternoons. The K19 encourages children’s social skills, self-confidence and supports positive development. The children’s center is provided by the AGAPEDIA foundation, which was founded by Jürgen Klinsmann in 1995 and is active in Germany and Eastern Europe.
The cooperation between AV/IT distributor Exertis Pro AV (formerly COMM-TEC) from Uhingen and the K19 Children’s Centre in Geislingen is supposed to be a long-term partnership and to support the Children’s Centre throughout the year with regular donations. As a prelude, the fundraising campaign “Exertis with Heart” was launched at Christmas 2021. The children of the K19 desired a new spiral slide. Exertis Pro AV, together with other donators, turned the wish into reality.
For the first official donation handover, Rainer Sprinzl, managing director for Germany, Austria and Switzerland at Exertis Pro AV, as well as Mike Hommel, head of marketing at Exertis Pro AV, personally visited the children’s center and handed over a cheque in the amount of 5,000€ ($5,677.60).
“With the K19, the children have a loving place to go and a familiar haven in their leisure time. Here they can learn and find encouragement,” said Mike Hommel. “I especially like the great networking opportunities for the children and the chance to pursue their preferences and hobbies and to discover and enjoy their talents, whether in sports or music. I am very pleased that we can support this valuable encouragement. This institution truly contributes to the development of our young people – this is also in line with our company values and matches wonderfully with Exertis Pro AV!”
Rainer Sprinzl is also very pleased about the partnership. “The K19 has long been a matter of personal importance to me. As a local company, I consider it as an important concern to support this foundation in a sustainable partnership throughout the year,” Sprinzl said. “I am very pleased that this has now succeeded and that we were able to realize the children’s slide as a Christmas wish.”
