Europe’s most sustainable developer of industrial logistics parks, has a proud history of giving back to charities and communities. Recently, 12 of our European offices took part in a month-long ‘Dock Doors of Giving campaign’, aimed at returning much needed funds to charitable causes and community groups hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Today, on World Cancer Day, we’re sharing how our employees and supply chain, together with the Prologis Foundation, returned over €275,000 to 91 charities across Europe, outperforming the initial target of €200,000.
Donations ranged from financial contributions to food, toys and other items, including hand sanitiser and much needed PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), to food banks and community groups struggling to cope with increased demand.
“The Dock Doors of Giving campaign is about more than simply donating - it’s about lasting support and commitment to the communities that we are part of,” explains Ben Bannatyne, president, Prologis Europe. ‘Social responsibility runs deep in our culture - from companywide days of community service, to providing volunteering days for employees, we always strive to be a force for good in our local communities. This campaign uniquely helps us come together and show how we can make a real difference for charities and community groups as COVID-19 continues to put pressure on all areas of life.”
Beneficiaries include: Birmingham Children’s Hospital (UK), VOKK (Association Parents, Children and Cancer) (NL), Klub Svobodnych Matek (CZ), Hamogelo (The Smile of The Child) (GR), Domus Bene (SK), Empowering Children Foundation (PL), Société Protectrice des Animaux (SPA) (FR) to name a few. All charitable causes contributed and selected were personal to our employees involved with the campaign.
