Landshut – pm (02/04/2023) The 2022 advent calendar campaign of the Lions Club Landshut ended with a good result for a good cause. The proceeds were around 30,000 euros for nine non-profit institutions and educational initiatives in the region.
Finally, club president Roland Kramschuster, Florian Schneider, deputy chairman of the Lions-Hilfswerk Landshut, and the calendar organizers Dr. Alexander Beck and Andreas Oberprieler donated the amount on Wednesday in the Küffner law firm to the DOM neighborhood meeting place, the banana flank Landshut, Donum Vitae, the Lichtblick Seniorenhilfe, the St. Vinzenz children’s home, the Landshut food bank, the Vilsbiburg hospice, the St. Peter and Paul primary school and presented to the elementary school in Vilsheim.
The proceeds will go towards the purchase of a mobile football pitch for the “Bananaflanke Landshut” football inclusion club, where disabled athletes from the city and district can regularly play football. This should be purchased so that the club does not have to rent a pitch for every tournament. In addition, the court is to be made available to other clubs and institutions for events, festivals and celebrations for a fee. The Landshuter Tafel receives financial help to purchase a new vehicle for transporting food and to cope with the increased influx due to the sharp increase in the cost of living.
With the donation, the neighborhood meeting place DOM can continue its longstanding and proven social and educational work with a focus on integration projects in the Landshut-Nord/Altdorf area. The St. Vinzenz children’s home receives help for the purchase of tablets in order to offer the children better conditions for digital learning. With the money, Lichtblick Seniorenhilfe enables the monthly delivery of groceries to needy pensioners in old age poverty and thus ensures that everyday life is made easier for people with health problems and limitations and that social contacts are maintained.
With the donation, the primary school St. Peter and Paul supports the establishment of a school beekeeping where the children can gain experience in dealing with animals, in the production of food and in working in nature. Donum Vitae receives support for replacing defective office equipment and for providing needy women with children with everyday necessities such as diapers or hygiene items.
The hospice Vilsbiburg receives financial help to make the everyday life of the seriously and terminally ill residents more comfortable in addition to the standard services of the health system. And the primary school in Vilsheim is using the donation to implement the Class 2000 project in the first grade, in which the children are introduced to the topics of health and the prevention of addiction and violence.
“We are pleased that the Lions Advent calendar has again been so well received by the people in the region,” said Club President Roland Kramschuster. “Without the buyers, we would not be able to hand over this great sum. This is a donation from the people in the Landshut area for people who deserve our support.”
All 6600 copies of the calendar were sold over the Christmas period. The prizes with a total value of more than 19,000 euros ensured great demand. On behalf of all sponsors, calendar organizer Dr. Alexander Beck to the sponsors of the main prizes: Zweirad Pritscher (donated an e-bike worth 4,300 euros), Kortmann Meisterschmuck (donated a pendant with a diamond worth 1,500 euros) and Optik Kramschuster (donated glasses worth 1,000 euros ). “It makes us proud how the economy in the region has once again put itself at the service of a good cause for this campaign.”
