Prologis Europe’s ‘Dock Doors of Giving’ Returns Over €275,000 to Charity
Prologis, the global leader in logistics real estate today shared its charitable impact in Europe and steadfast commitment to local communities and good causes. 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 are 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 took the form of financial contributions or food, games or other things, including hand sanitiser gel or PPE (personal protection equipment) for food banks and community groups that were running short of such products under the pressure of Covid.
“The Dock Doors of Giving campaign gave us the chance to be in constant touch with these associations that have been doing vital work since the start of the pandemic,” explains Cristian Oller, VP and Country Manager for Prologis Spain. “The company has been working with communities and social organisations in Spain for years and we are proud to have been able to help them sustain the great social work they do.”
Organisations helped by the campaign include BarcelonActua (an NGO focused on social action for vulnerable groups, young migrants, and refugees), Apoyo Positivo (a charity working in inclusion, diversity and health), the Animal Protection Society (Spain and France), among others. All the social causes we picked and which we supported were important to Prologis employees who took part in the campaign.
