At this year's annual meeting, all participants had the exciting and enjoyable task of building a "Prangl 2020 building" out of Lego bricks. Ten beautiful and creative buildings/works of art were created. They will be displayed in the depots in the future and will serve as a reminder of the meeting. As numerous bricks remained unused after this creative workshop, we asked ourselves what we could do with them. Following eager discussions, we decided on the "Sterntalerhof" in Loipersdorf. We are delighted to provide these remaining Lego bricks to this good cause.
The core objective at the Sterntalerhof is inpatient care for families with critically ill children. It has taken a decade to develop and it aims to become established sustainably. The families with critically ill, chronically ill and terminally ill children are surrounded by a pleasant environment and are helped by a team of pedagogues, therapists, psychologists and pastors to find their way back into a normal daily life and to learn how to deal with their fate in the best possible way. This is all done in the heart of nature and supported by a team of specially-trained therapeutic horses who understand how to touch the children's hearts. In addition, integrative grief work following the loss of a loved one has become a very important task.
The agreed visit to the Sterntalerhof took place on 10/11/2015. The Prangl fleet manager, Mr Schreiner, and the regional sales manager for the Styria region, Mr Pronegg, went together to give the Lego donation personally to Mr Jankovits, who is the managing director of the Sterntalerhof. As part of this, the two Prangl employees were able to get an overview of the area and the therapy options. They both returned to the Zettling depot with many unique impressions.
