Truma Corp. announces donation of 10,000 Euros to hpkj. e.V, a Munich non-profit association that offers programs for youth. Among other services, the organization offers a youth center and shared shelter for severely traumatized children. The association also provides mobile child support and education services, as well as a migration advisory service. The donation will be in lieu of Christmas presents to customers and business partners.
Truma’s donation will help finance hpkj’s advisory service. The project supports families from refugee and migration backgrounds on all matters concerning living and working in Germany. The aim is to offer people practical support and promote linguistic, professional and social integration.
The check was presented during hpkj’s 30th anniversary celebration in October 2018. “With our Christmas donation, we want to support trusted local institutions that we have been working with for years,” Truma owner Renate Schimmer-Wottrich says. “Doing something for marginalised families and children less fortunate than us—in particular, supporting the integration of newly arrived families—is a cause close to my heart.”
