Words are good, acting is better. This is not true for all areas of life, but with certainty for social responsibility. The football club VfB Stuttgart has fixed social responsibility in its new overall concept of 2014, but already before had focussed it in diverse projects, as for example an existing coorporation with the rehab clinic in Tannheim since 1991, visits of the VfB players at the Olgahospital Stuttgart and the projects kicken&lesen (kick&read), Fußball trifft Kultur (football meets culture) or Mit Spaß und Spiel gegen Drogen und Gewalt (with fun and play against drugs and violence). Together with the DKMS, the VfB Stuttgart already realised a typing campaign at the Mercedes-Benz Arena. Furthermore, the club supports people with a migration background and offers regular training sessions for refugees in the context of Fußball verbindet (football unites).

Help for people who are ill, jobless or overindebted
During some weeks, the "Vesperkirche" opens its doors for people being ill, jobless or overindebted and the VfB Stuttgart football club supports the project. The coaches, players and employees of the club will help on the action day 2018 in the Leonhardskirche. With the proceeds of the charity auction, the church will be supported.
