Why should the needy be helped?
Help those in need
There has been a good tradition at STEAG in Essen since 2013: Every Tuesday, the so-called STEAG Tuesday, hard-working colleagues help in the soup kitchen of the Essen Diakonie. In this institution of the social service of the Protestant church, food and drinks are distributed to the needy, including the homeless.
“The support of the soup kitchen through active help on site is very well received by our employees, especially since one of our STEAG colleagues had the idea,” reports Udo Woidneck, who coordinates social activities and works as a compliance officer at STEAG. "We look forward to supporting a local institution and being able to help right on our doorstep."
The commitment of STEAG employees is on a voluntary basis; they do not take their lunch break from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. when they are on the job. The remaining 30 minutes are released from STEAG for the engagement.
Behind the soup kitchen, however, there is much more than the name suggests, because 30 to 40 complete warm meals are given out by volunteers, such as STEAG employees, to people who need support. For a small fee, those in need can have a hot lunch including a drink and dessert.
Social workers from the Diakonie also support homeless people in looking for accommodation, and addicts are helped in the integrated counseling center. In front of the building there is also a special ambulance operated by the Essen Social Services Association, in which the social center's customers can be treated free of charge.
The help of the STEAG employees is not limited to the involvement in the soup kitchen. At the Essen location, in the entrance area of the casino, excess drugstore items and old clothes are collected in a textile container behind the main building and handed over to the Diakonie for distribution to those in need. In this way, even in economically difficult times, we think outside the box and help those in need.
