Particular support was given to the Austrian charity institution “Sozialmarkt” by our Viennese Unit during the Covid-19 crisis. Additionally to the donation of food items worth EUR 298,000 to local charities in Spain, the company prepared donation points across Madrid to distribute gift bags to all employees on temporary contract leave.
