Social Commitment

Community Service

During 2016, we again provided financial support to the Hamburg Donor’s Parliament, a grassroots charity fighting homelessness, poverty and loneliness. We also assisted the Donor’s Parliament when it invited 250 guests from the worlds of politics, administration, industry and social organisations, to celebrated its 20th anniversary in DG HYP’s winter garden, an event that received considerable media coverage.

In continuation of our support for refugees, we patronised the “BFD Welcome Hamburg” project created by STADTKULTUR HAMBURG e.V., the governing body for all cultural-social organisations in Hamburg, and – together with other sponsors – provided financing for the first year of this project.

During our regular Social Day, when we make staff available to engage in social projects as volunteers, 15 DG HYP employees helped spruce up the rambling gardens of the “Sternenbrücke” children’s hospice in Hamburg in 2016.

Our employees’ 2016 Christmas donations – as always, doubled by DG HYP – were given to two institutions: “Verein Mehrblick”, helping disadvantaged children and teenagers, and “Jenfelder Kaffeekanne”, helping the homeless. As in previous years, DG HYP refrained from sending Christmas cards for ecological reasons. The amount saved was used to support the Diakonie’s "Midnight bus” in Hamburg, which provides homeless people with blankets, food and warm drinks.
