On 15 January, local logistics real estate developer Prologis presented a donation of 10,000 Euros to the Düsseldorf Children’s Aid Center. At a ceremony on the grounds of the Children’s Aid Center, the mayor of Düsseldorf, Josef Hinkel, and Jürgen Hampel, head of department at the office for social affairs and youth–Children’s Aid Center Düsseldorf, accepted the symbolic check from Björn Thiemann, senior vice president, regional head Northern Europe at Prologis.
Since December 2020, Prologis has worked with the Children’s Aid Center Foundation and Friends of the Children’s Aid Center, which supports the institution on behalf of donors. Prologis helps the Children’s Aid Center with financial and material donations, as well as work projects, such as improving the outdoor area and the garden. “I’m delighted Prologis is committed to our city and supports this center on a regular basis,” said Mayor Hinkel. “The donation will directly benefit the children and young people at the children's aid center. I would like to thank Prologis for this.”
The money will be invested in a vehicle for the girls’ protection group. “Using the vehicle is a great help in organizing the group’s daily routine and leisure activities,” said Hampel. “With their donations and work projects, Prologis employees show us time and again that they’re interested in the commitment of our institution and are happy to make a contribution to the children’s future.”
Prologis turned 40 last year and took the opportunity to deliver the donation to the Children’s Aid Center shortly after the new year. The company was founded in the USA and now operates in 19 countries on four continents. “As a company that’s been anchored in the region for many years and as a partner of the city of Düsseldorf, we will continue to be involved in the social sector and would like to build on our four years of good cooperation with the Children’s Aid Center,” said Thiemann. “We really appreciate the great work of the Children’s Aid Center and are delighted to be able to make the children and young people, as well as the childcare team, happy.”
