Fundraising campaign for flood victims at FREY&LAU

On 14.07.2021, flash floods triggered by heavy rain rolled through the towns along the Ahr river. 134 people lost their lives. Thousands are homeless. Hundreds of buildings were swept away. A great wave of willingness to help and donate is now rolling through FREY&LAU. A donation campaign was quickly organised and three donation canisters were set up in the company and now opened on Thursday, 29.07.2021. The 270 employees of FREY&LAU donated no less than 2,096.60 euros. The management then increased the sum to 10,000 euros. FREY&LAU donated all the money to "Aktion Deutschland hilft".

Vaccination campaign at FREY&LAU – Together against Corona

On Wednesday, 30 June 2021, all FREY&LAU employees and their relatives had the opportunity to be vaccinated by our company doctor, Dr Taubitz. Both first and second vaccinations were offered. A remarkable 101 vaccinations were carried out during this great campaign. Even the weather cooperated on this day - fortunately for all relatives - they of course had to wait outside the door to ensure safety for all participants. FREY&LAU hasn't had this many visitors since the 2019 summer party. Thanks to the great planning of the HR department, everything went smoothly, with little contact and to everyone's satisfaction.
