Press release: The LGE offers the Stëmm a generous cheque
The Lycée de Garçons Esch presented a cheque worth 2000 € to Alexandra Oxacelay, director of the Stëmm vun der Strooss, during an official donation presentation on 28 March 2022. In the presence of Pascal Bermes and Rita Bohler, director and deputy director of the grammar school in Esch-sur-Alzette, and Claudine Bley, coordinator of the Christmas market, Alexandra Oxacelay accepted the generous donation and presented the activities of the association as well as the Caddy 2 project in Sanem, in which the donated money will be invested.
For this project in the industrial area Um Woeller, 40 additional people will be employed in vocational rehabilitation. In addition, the non-profit association will aim to increase the amount of food currently collected, processed and redistributed under strict food safety control from 100 tonnes to 500 tonnes thanks to the partnership with the hypermarket Auchan.
The money raised came from the LGE’s traditional Christmas market, which took place on 14 December 2021. The school had even provided the LGE with an information stand so that the numerous visitors could be informed about the charitable aspect of this festive evening.
The Caddy 2 project will be operational from autumn this year and Alexandra Oxacelay warmly invited the LGE school management to attend the official inauguration on 23 September. At the end of her speech, she recalled: “Thanks to actions like yours, we are able to fulfil our mission, which is, among other things, to provide vocational rehabilitation to people who are very far from the labour market due to their state of health, age or lack of qualifications. Our project feeds three birds with one scone, as it simultaneously contributes to the fight against food waste and poverty
