PMA/TOOLS – We are committed
It is not only sustainable action that is close to our hearts. As a company, we are also aware of our social responsibility. Whether in our region or further away – we get involved where help is really needed and used responsibly. In doing so, it is important to us to support the institutions directly and immediately with donations in kind or money.
Donations for Ukraine
We are all touched by the war in Ukraine and the desperate situation of the people. A partner company in Myslinka (Czech Republic) is directly affected. The Ukrainian employees working there were able to let family members join them in their accommodation.
A campaign was started here to collect essential items to provide extra support. As a result, 5 pallets full of donations were sent.
Oak trees for a forest in Essen
As part of our Advent calendar, we gave one day a special green motto and donated a tree for every online order placed that day. The oak trees were donated to the Stiftung Unternehmen Wald for a reforestation project in Essen.
24 good deeds
The purchase of the Advent calendar 24 GUTE TATEN (24 good deeds) provides financial support to organisations that engage for social equity and environmental protection worldwide. With this calendar campaign, we wanted to raise our employees’ awareness for global challenges and a stronger social involvement.
Christmas gifts campaign
In view of the Corona crisis, which is challenging all of us, we wanted to support people in need very close to us.
With the help of our team, we supported the Willicher Tafel with food packages. Currently, the Tafel Willich supplies about 1,250 people, including about 450 children.
Elterninitiative Krebshilfe e.V.
One of our Christmas donations 2021 went to Elterninitiative Kinderkrebsklinik e. V., a foundation that supports children who suffer from cancer and chronic illnesses at Düsseldorf University Hospital in many ways.
Help for the homeless
2020 we donated to the “franzfreunde”, a social welfare institution that provides help to the homeless people in Düsseldorf,
who have been especially affected by the Corona pandemic. The donation was used to buy care packages, sleeping bags and similar things especially for those who were still outside.
Christmas gifts campaign
Our employees were called to pack Christmas parcels for the Willicher Tafel e. V. filled with non-perishable food, that does not need to be refrigerated. Those packages were picked up by employees of the Willicher Tafel. With this donation, people visiting the Tafel are given a small but important financial margin for the purchase of other necessities or activities, which would otherwise not be possible.
Support for girls and young women
In 2019, we again dispensed with Christmas presents and donated to the association Freundeskreis TrebeCafé Düsseldorf e. V. instead, a place for girls and young women who live on the streets and need support.
Donation of cloth masks
Under the motto „Mask on – they have a greater effect when we all wear them“ we decided to donate 650 re-usable mouth/nose masks to the Caritas, the Tafel, a kindergarten and an elementary school. The institutions appreciated the donation.
A Café of the special ART
Instead of Christmas presents, we donated in 2018 amongst others, to the association Kunstcafé EinBlick e.V., which supports the promotion and integration of people with handicaps.
Help for children in Romania
A further Christmas donation in 2018 went to the children’s charity organisation Kleine Löwen in Rumänien e.V., which helps children in the poorest sections of the population in Romania. The donation was used to buy Santa Claus parcels and food packages for the families.
