GLS Austria is committed to its role in society. Whether Caritas, the protection of animals or OÖ. Kinder-Krebs-Hilfe: we support selected initiatives across the country and make an active contribution for the good of society.
We help others!
Supporting homeless adolescents
The youth emergency shelter “Juno” offers homeless young people accommodation and meals – especially in the cold winter months. As part of the Europe-wide GLS ThinkSocial initiative, Dr. Axel Spörl, General Manager of GLS Austria, and Sasa Vrsajkovic, Head of the GLS depot in Fürnitz, handed over sports bags for the “Juno” residents – packed with bath towels, drinking bottles and thermo cups and other practical objects.
Help in need
Ready for enjoyable summer parties: GLS Austria surprised the residents of “Haus Miriam” with a high quality barbecue grill. On Valentine’s Day, GLS already brought joy to the women’s centre in Vienna with cinema vouchers, shower gel and summer gift parcels. This charitable project helps women in need make a fresh start – and we do our bit.
Putting a smile on the faces of young patients
OÖ. Kinder-Krebs-Hilfe in Linz provides counselling to children with cancer, and their parents, during treatment and rehabilitation. The assistance provided ranges from personal support through to the financing of treatment measures. GLS Austria helps the children take their mind off things a little by surprising them on special occasions such as Christmas and Easter.
