Each year in Denmark, approximately 160 children under the age of 14 are diagnosed with cancer. The diagnosis is life changing in many ways for the child and his or her family.  Little things that were once taken for granted, like going to the movies or the zoo, may no longer be possible. Often, families are isolated for long periods of time due to a sick child’s weakened immune system.

As part of the 2010 West without Borders campaign, employees in West’s Exton, Pa., headquarters raised funds to aid Canine Partners for Life (CPL), an organization dedicated to training service dogs, home companion dogs and residential companion dogs to assist individuals who have a wide range of physical and cognitive disabilities. One of the many bonuses to working with the organization was an opportunity to name one of the service dogs. After a vote, the name “Star” was chosen.

West’s team members in Germany have spent the past month on charitable activities as part of the 2013 West without Borders fundraising initiative. Donations inspired volunteers to prepare lunch, snacks and desserts for their colleagues. Other activities included a raffle, various food sales and a flea market at plants in Eschweiler, Stolberg and the European Headquarters at Kiefernweg to help raise money for local children in need. This year’s motto was “Gemeinsam erfüllen wir Herzenswünsche” (Together we make dreams come true).
