LGI provides truck for aid transport
HERRENBERG. LGI Logistics Group International GmbH is supporting a campaign by the Angels Association and took over an aid transport to a social center for children in Romania. On Tuesday (November 13th), the logistics company’s truck arrived at two destinations near Herrenberg where the Angels Association stores rows and rows of boxes of toys, clothing and other useful items for children from underprivileged backgrounds. Volunteers from the Angels Association helped load the 40-ton truck at the two sites near Herrenberg. For months, the association had collected boxes of shoes, blankets and warm clothing for the winter.
“We also sent bicycles, household items and even an electronic piano on the journey,” said Angelika Knappe, president of the Angels Association. “We are very happy that we can bring the items to Romania with the help of LGI”.On Tuesday (November 13th), the 24-ton truck set off on its 1750 kilometers journey to the village of Roman in the Romanian region of Moldova. The transport already arrived at the children’s homes on the weekend. “We are delighted to be able to continue this good tradition,” says Division Manager Bernhard Jung, who is responsible for the LGI fleet. LGI had already provided a truck and driver for the transport to Romania in 2015 and 2016.

“With the aid transport, we are supporting the children with things that they need,” explained Knappe. Since 2001, the Angels have been supporting children from Roman, most of whom come from ppor backgrounds. In addition to one aid transport a year, the work of the Angels association gives 80 children and young people at the social center the prospect of a better future because they can go to kindergarten or school. Due to high unemployment many families in Romania live in great poverty.
