At the DFB Cup first round match against Preußen Münster on 17 August 2014, FC Bayern München learned of the fate of a number of social institutions that were badly damaged by heavy recent storms over Münster and the surrounding area.
The premises of the parent-led initiatives “Die Glühwürmchen e.V.“ and “Kindergruppe Grünhaus e.V.”, for example, have been unusable since the catastrophic flooding; the children had to be allocated to nearby day nurseries. “Gut Kinderhaus,“ a care facility for the mentally disabled, was equally hard hit. At the moment eight residents have to live in a container as the residential building has been destroyed. FC Bayern Hilfe e.V. wants to support and expedite the reconstruction work of the parental initiatives “Die Glühwürmchen e.V.“ and “Kindergruppe Grünhaus e.V.“ with a total donation of €10,000 and of “Gut Kinderhaus“ with a further €10,000.
“It was immediately clear to FC Bayern München that we would help quickly and without red tape. We received an incredibly friendly welcome at our game in Münster, and we want to say thank-you for the warm hospitality by making the two donations,“ commented FC Bayern München AG chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
