Weihnachtsaktion

The magic of Christmas makes wishes come true. Though sadly not everywhere. Commerzbank has developed the lovely tradition of bringing a little joy to children and teenagers in need. Thus at Christmas 2016, Commerzbanker have fulfilled more than 800 children's wishes.

One example: Every year starting on the first advent, in the Lobby of the Commerzbank tower in Frankfurt a pin board loaded with wishes can be found next to a decorated Christmas tree. Commerzbank employees participate in this Christmas activity on their own or in teams making small and big wishes come true.

Just before Christmas the collected and festively packaged presents are brought to child and youth care institutions, including facilities for unaccompanied underage refugees from war or conflict areas by Commerzbank junior staff. The company “Hofmann-Umzüge”, who supported the initiative from the start, carries out the transport for the presents. Big thanks to them!

The Christmas wish-initiative was first organized in 2007 by employees in the risk management team. Since then, the idea has spread out. At other Commerzbank locations such as Berlin, Hamburg and Göttingen employees are organizing similar Christmas projects for social childrens and youth institutions.
