Mettmann. “Give a hand of hope” is the name of a Nikolaus campaign by the Mettmann day care interest group. On December 6th, the community would like to present children with surprise bags.



The action is to take place on St. Nicholas Day, this year a Sunday, between 3 and 5 p.m., at five locations in Mettmann’s city center. The IG would like to pack around 1,000 bags for this purpose.

The city’s child minders and child minders are united in the IG Kindertagespflege. In addition to daycare centers, day care is another form of early childhood care.

The “hope hands” were already there at Easter. These are painted imprints of children’s hands on cardboard. They decorated many shop windows during Easter. Have the children remind them that hand washing is important during these times. They are called “hands of hope” because they should give hope that there will be another time without Corona.

In the coming days, the children of the IG will decorate a tree with self-made “hope hands”. All children in the city can take part by making their own hands and hanging them in the tree.

Because there were and still are many restrictions for children this year, the interest group would like to make all Mettmann children happy on St. Nicholas Day.

Donations from parents and companies in the region should make it possible for 1,000 surprise bags to be packed this coming weekend. Further donations are welcome. Information on this is available by email at
IG [email protected] or by phone 0177/6 03 84 57.

The community of interests would also like to support families in need. That is why she takes part in the “Lichtblicke” campaign that local radio stations from North Rhine-Westphalia have launched (more about this can be found under https://lichtblicke.de/.) There is also a “Lichtblicke” donation box in the individual day care stations.

The locations of the tree and the bag promotion on December 6th will be announced.
