Oldenburger|Fritom supports several charities and civil society organizations (CSOs) who are committed to social sustainability. In line with our policy for corporate social responsibility we show our commitment in today’s society. We do so by offering financial support as well as sharing our knowledge.
In 2021, Oldenburger|Fritom entered into a partnership with De Zijlen. This care and welfare organization for people with an intellectual disability has approximately 40 forms of housing in the Dutch province of Groningen. Although we are active in a different line of work, there are many similarities between our two organizations. For example, we both strive for social participation in the region and we focus on innovative solutions within our area of expertise.
In that context, Oldenburger|Fritom donated both Bike Labyrinth and a care robot to De Zijlen. Bike Labyrinth is a screen that is placed in front of an exercise bike to take a virtual bicycle tour. Temi robot entertains the residents, brings them into contact with each other and shows them the way. In addition, the care robot provides support to the care teams in remote care, supervision, daytime activities, process renewal, reception support and physical guidance.
Thanks to the food bank Veendam & the region food waste is prevented while families in the region are supported. Over 300 families rely on the support of the food bank Veendam & the region. Oldenburger|Fritom supports this civil society organization financially, with equipment and by sharing our knowledge.
We donated a freezer, a pump truck, a printer and free fuel. During the busy times around Christmas we help prepare the packages for the families. Our QHSE manager provides free advice on food safety.
The Jarige Job foundation enables birthdays for children growing up in poverty. They do so by giving away birthday boxes containing everything needed to have a great birthday. The box contains gifts, cake mix, school treats, balloons and other products to celebrate a birthday.
Thanks to this foundation children can have a birthday party to look forward to. The Jarige Job foundation is financially supported by us, just as we do for other CSOs. Thanks to our financial contribution numerous birthday boxes have already been put together and handed out.
The Leergeld foundation is aimed at children aged 4 to 18 who grow up in families that have restricted financial means. To prevent these children from falling into social isolation this foundation offers them activities to take part in, during and after school.
Oldenburger|Fritom has been involved with the Leergeld foundation for many years. Our financial contribution is used in four focus areas: sports, education, cultural activities and wellbeing. Enabling children to participate in sports lessons, music lessons and to go on school trips.
