Holiday Toy Drive for Sick and Underprivileged Children
During the particularly tough 2020 holiday season, FLEXIM AMERICAS came together as the united caring team they are and Sponsored families in need. FLEXIM teamed up with the John Theissen Children Foundation who cares for sick and underprivileged children. We were given the “L” family to sponsor who had 5 young children- 3 boys who hoped for trucks and trains and 2 girls who wished for dolls and arts and crafts. We had such a great response from the team that we were able to supply gifts to even more families. Our humble office tree was the centerpiece for the plethora of gifts our generous team brought in. When the toys were dropped off, the workers were in awe of the amount of gifts donated. During such a hard year it warms the heart to see how much good is still out there. The FLEXIM team makes a difference every day and particularly during the holidays for those less fortunate. These children had the biggest smiles and their parents had the warmest hearts knowing the kindness of absolute strangers helped bring joy to their family.
Giving light in Berlin-Marzahn
The Theodorus Hospiz Marzahn is a facility for terminal care. In 16 single rooms the guests, as the patients are called here, are cared for on their last journey.
The nursing service tries to create a pleasant atmosphere in the guest rooms. Light plays a particularly important role in this. A pleasant lighting atmosphere has a very positive effect on the guests and their visitors.
In the pre-Christmas season 2020 FLEXIM’s employees have asked how they could support the hospice. They were told that it would be nice to further embellish and brighten up the rooms with bedside and floor lamps. With this in mind, FLEXIMers have donated money for the light. 305 Euros have been collected within FLEXIM Cares. For the donation money a home-center voucher was purchased and given to the hospice.

FLEXIM Helps India
Employees donate for emergency aid project
In the Spring of 2021, as the situation in many countries began to slightly improve, India was heavily hit by the second wave of COVID and experienced a collapse of the health system with tragic consequences. FLEXIM employees immediately started a company-wide fundraising campaign that collected 4,300 euros. "We couldn't just watch, we had to help here," said one employee. The company known for its non-invasive ultrasonic flowmeters, matched employee donations as part of their FLEXIM Cares initiative, so that 8,600 euros could be transferred to the Akshaya Patra Foundation. This non-profit organization delivers meals and food packages to marginalized and low-income sections of the population as part of Corona emergency relief activities. With the donations, a total of 24,960 cooked meals for people in Delhi and Bangalore were financed and distributed.
