Deutsche Bank volunteers start off the year with Weifang Sunshine House
January 2013 │ China
17 volunteers from Deutsche Bank Shanghai started off the new year with 15 students from Weifang Sunshine House, a organization helping children with mental and physical disabilities, on January 19. The group spent two hours in Papa John’s, working in pairs to make pizzas from various ingredients. The end products not only filled the bellies of the students and the volunteers, they also gave each and every one of them a sense of fulfilment.
During lunch, the students gave a lovely performance of songs and of the Shanghai Dialect Show, earning loud applause from the audience. In return, our volunteers performed an impromptu “Gangnam Style” dance with two of the students. At the end of the lunch, the volunteers handed out a gift to each of the students on behalf of the Bank, wishing them a happy new year.
This year, there will be more meaningful activities with the students from Weifang Sunshine House, including outings and mentoring sessions.
