ELTVILLE » Because of Corona, the Eltville table has been closed for a good two weeks. In order to close this supply gap, the city of Eltville and the community foundation called for donations last week for the needy from Eltville, Kiedrich, and Walluf. The first distribution campaign to customers of the Eltviller table took place yesterday Thursday. “We organize the distribution of the food with city employees,” Mayor Patrick Kunkel explains. All steps and the handover of the packed bags took place without contact.
The network office Eltville coordinates the action. “More than 50 donation bags were packed that could be bought from the donations of the past few days,” said Manfred Edelmann, chairman of the Eltville table. “We had to buy the groceries in a Wiesbaden wholesale market because the local markets no longer want to or cannot deliver the quantities we demand,” continues Edelmann. A fundraising campaign via Facebook also raised several thousand euros.
The Caritas Rheingau table is also currently closed due to the risk of infection from the coronavirus. Nevertheless, many people are dependent on the food that they have previously obtained from the table. The four delivery points in Geisenheim, Rudesheim, Lorch, and Oestrich-Winkel normally supply 125 households with 300 people. Among them are more than 100 children. The Caritas Association would also like to support these people in the crisis and provide them with food vouchers for selected supermarkets so that nobody has to go hungry, and therefore requests donations.
The “Future Gift” foundation will initially provide funding in the form of shopping vouchers for affected families with children in Oestrich-Winkel. The foundation is in close consultation with the Caritas tables in the Rheingau so that families can receive this support very promptly, said Jean-Dominique Risch from the board of the foundation. The aid is intended to support the families for an initial period of three months. In order to be able to increase and extend the aid, the foundation asks for earmarked donations to the account of the foundation at the Rheingauer Volksbank, Iban: DE63 5109 1500 0000 0561 38, under the keyword “family help”.
Donations to the account of Caritas, Iban: DE08 5105 0015 0277 0006 00, should be used for the “Tafel Rheingau / Caritas”. It is also possible to go online at www. donate Caritas-Wiesbaden-Rheingau-tau nus.de – earmarked for this campaign on the bottom of the board or under the contribution on the start page for this campaign.
The Rudesheimer association “Rud-Aktiv” plans to put together with care packages and deliver them to those in need from Rudesheim, Eibingen, Assmannshausen, Aulhausen, and Presberg. People who want to help and do not belong to the risk group can contact the association on phone 06722-414 97 17 or by email at [email protected]
Food boxes in the church
If you need help with shopping, a trip to the doctor or something similar, you can contact the parish office of the parish of Heilig Kreuz on phone 06722-75 07 40 or by email at info @ Heilig-Kreuz-rhein gau.de. People in need can take something from the boxes in the churches. The others are asked to keep durable food there.
