The corona pandemic has placed and will continue to place a heavy burden on the approximately 1,000 employees of bamberg’s care and handicapped facilities. It cannot be ruled out, for example, that visits to facilities will have to be severely restricted again as a result of the current incidence of infections. For this reason, the senate of finance has decided to give them each a gift bag in recognition of their outstanding performance.
Mayor andreas stark (SPD) thanked all the caregivers working in bamberg for their efforts. He wanted the "bamberger gift bags" a gesture of thanks and public recognition understand. Jonas glusenkamp (grunes bamberg), in his function as social affairs officer, is in the process of visiting all care providers and disabled facilities and talking about the current situation in the care sector.
It is his concern "to find out from those directly involved how they perceive the situation in order to draw political conclusions for action".
Each gift bag contains two bocksbeutel with silvaner from the "bamberger stiftsgarten" at michaelsberg, a voucher for 20 euros for shopping at the burgerspitalstiftung bamberg and five "city-schexs" worth ten euros each. The bags are financed by funds from the city’s foundations.
