Supporting the SLW Foundation in Altötting
With its 2020 Christmas donation, preeflow, a brand of ViscoTec in Töging, wants to support children and young people. The Seraphisches Liebeswerk Foundation in Altötting (SLW) was selected for this cause. The microdosing technology specialists handed over €2,000 to the children's charity on 22nd January.
Johannes Erbertseder, Chairman of the Board of the SLW Foundation and General Manager of Franziskushaus Altötting, on the donation handover in Töging: "It was a new experience for me to receive a donation from a global market leader. We have a significant need in the area of educational support, as there are many children in care to be looked after. We provide for their free time - but not just the "fun" free time, but also with regard to the children's socio-educational future.“
The SLW Foundation originates from the Capuchin Children's Charity. Its main focus is on upbringing, education, care, and protection. At the Altötting center, the SLW Foundation runs a retreat and conference house with an adjoining youth guesthouse. A total of about 2,300 children, adolescents and young adults are cared for and comprehensively supported. The Franziskushaus in Altötting and the Antoniushaus in Marktl also belong to the network of facilities.

"Young people are our future, and we have to help where we can. I have known the Capuchins for a long time; when I was a child, one of them always came to our farm collecting donations and in return brought food for the cows," recalls Georg Senftl, Managing Director of ViscoTec, at the handover of the donation.
The donations are used to give children and young people, whose families have fallen on hard times, a better future. Anyone who wants to support the work of the SLW Foundation can make a donation or become a member.
