Regula Schölly handed over a donation of € 2,500 to the AIV (Center of civic engagement) Denzlingen in the presence of Mayor Hollemann, Michael Hog and Ralf Janke in a small ceremony.


The AIV is a citizen service, which mediates "helping hands" to people, who need support with smaller handouts. Committed citizens can register at the AIV as "helping hands" and volunteer. Local residents who need minor aids can register at the AIV and will then be referred to the appropriate support. 

The money donated by SCHÖLLY comes from the traditional IT factory sale, where employees can obtain discarded electronic equipment, this time mainly stationary computers and monitors, for a small donation. Especially in Corona times, it was and is necessary for many families to have several terminals available for simultaneous use at home to fulfill home office and homeschooling needs. 

Mayor Markus Hollemann initiated the Laptop Donation project, in which used laptops were donated by residents of Denzlingen and repaired by the AIV computer experts. Afterwards, students without their own device received a laptop.

"SCHÖLLY supports the creation of equal opportunities and the development of digital literacy among students," said Regula Schölly.

The donation will be used to further and support the project.
