One of Corina Winkler's passions is to put a smile on people's faces who are currently in a difficult life situation. The Kirchberger woman voluntarily collects clothing for the needy, which she distributes via the Facebook group "Together we are strong".
“Six years ago I came across the group by accident. It was immediately clear to me that I also wanted to help. So I started an appeal for donations via Facebook,” says the trained cook. Since then, she has been collecting clothing donations from private individuals in the valley throughout the year.
“Each piece is then photographed by me and posted on the Facebook page. Someone who needs the clothes the most will get them too,” says the 28-year-old, describing her mission. Only the shipping costs are to be paid by the recipient.
Twice a year she brings leftover donations in kind to the "soogut social market" in St. Pölten. "In the end, these items of clothing also get new owners," she says happily. Above all, the feeling of being able to help, as well as the positive feedback from the recipients, encourage the Kirchberger to continue pursuing her intention.
