On Sunday, December 3rd, Sint Nicolaas visited the families of DP World Antwerp. The party was a smashing success! About 94 families with 165 children colored, danced and sung, and filled their bellies. Not only the children of DP World Antwerp were made happy. We also supported the underprivileged families who are members of the organization "Moeders voor Moeders". Many employees brought second-hand items, children's clothing and care products to donate to the organization. On top of that, DP World Antwerp donated a care package full of shampoo, toothpaste and baby products worth 500 euros.
On Tuesday December 12th, everyone at our terminal could enjoy delicious warm Belgian fries for a charity. A total of 312 packets of fries were sold, good for € 1176.00
DP World doubled this amount and sponsored 12 runners during the Warmathon, good for another € 300.00. Employees and truckers could vote for their favorite charity and the most votes went to Make-A-Wish Belgium-Vlaanderen!
Thanks to the support of ‘De Foodcar’, which offered the fries at a discount, we can donate € 2652.00 to Make-A-Wish Belgium-Vlaanderen.
