Werner & Mertz, the Mainz-based manufacturer of cleaning and care products, and the nationwide logistics company Spedition Schmelzer in Gensingen recently joined up to donate 140 pallets of FROSCH brand household cleaners, dishwashing and laundry detergents to Tafel Deutschland e.V. branches throughout Germany. While Werner & Mertz provided goods valued at 190,000 EUR, Schmelzer managed the logistical work and delivered the pallets at its own expense to the central distribution points of Tafel Deutschland in Nuremberg, Essen, Berlin and Bremen. This was not the first time Schmelzer has cooperated with Frosch, which has supported the Tafeln for many years. By donating goods for everyday use, Frosch wants needy people to have the chance to give their homes an environmentally-friendly cleaning with sustainable products.

Especially now, when hundreds of thousands of refugees are turning to the Tafeln for help, support is urgently needed. "We too are interested in doing our part for such a good cause and in helping socially underprivileged people to cope with daily life," said Managing Director Marcus Schmelzer (left) about his company's engagement now and in future. The first shipment of high-quality household cleaners was loaded onto the truck in front of the Frosch headquarters in Rheinallee. "In the meantime the donations have been delivered," said Gerhard-Josef Schmitt, Managing Director of Werner & Mertz Service & Logistik (right). "Thanks so much."
