Every year, we donate over 100,000 items of clothing and provide financial assistance amounting to several hundred thousand zlotys. We support people at risk of social exclusion as well as health care facilities and those caring for the sick. We care for the fate of helpless animals. For years, we have been handing over our materials for insulating kennels and our employees are eager to engage in helping animals. Some of our people are active in foundations taking care of dogs, cats and wild animals. Since 2018, we have been running a used clothing collection action in 50 stores of Reserved, House and Mohito brands in Poland. So far, we have collected over five tons of clothes, which we have donated to those most in need.
In 2020, we financed the organisation of summer holidays for almost 200 wards from five organisations caring for children in children’s homes and for siblings of children under the care of hospices in Pomerania and Cracow. We donated gifts to the winners and funded three scholarships for participants of Albertiana festival. Despite the exceptionally difficult year, we supported the provision of equipment and repairs in institutions caring for children, the disabled and the homeless. The key partners in this are are the following: Gdańska Fundacja Innowacji Społecznej [Gdańsk Foundation for Social Innovation], Fundacja Rodzinny Gdańsk [Familial Gdańsk Foundation], Fundacja dla Rodziny ‘Ogniska Nadziei’ [‘Centres of Hope’ Foundation for Families], Towarzystwo Nasz Dom [Our Home Society], Krakowskie Domy Dla Dzieci [Children’s Homes of Cracow], Fundacja ALMA SPEI [ALMA SPEI Foundation], Fundacja Szekla [‘Szekla’ Foundation], Fundacja Szczęśliwej Drogi [‘Safe Journey’ Foundation], Fundacja Nasz Przyjazny Dom [‘Our Friendly Home’ Foundation], Fundacja FASCYNACJE [FASCINATIONS Foundation], Towarzystwo Profilaktyki Środowiskowej MROWISKO [ANTHILL Society for Environmental Prevention], and Centrum Profilaktyki i Edukacji Społecznej PARASOL [UMBRELLA Centre for Prevention and Social Education].
Apart from the #LPPpomaga action, we carried out our cyclical activities, such as financial aid for our employees struggling with illnesses or support for hospitals and hospices in the Tricity. The main beneficiaries are: M. Płażyński Children’s Hospital Polanki in Gdańsk, Hospice Foundation in Gdańsk, and Pomerania for Children Hospice. Supporting people and institutions in the field of health care also means responding flexibly to their needs. These are often urgent, unpredictable situations in which we try to be supportive of our stakeholders to the best of our ability.
We donated funds for the care of animals and also carried out a regular volunteer action during which we built and renovated stray cats’ houses. The key partners in this area are the following: Fundacja Krzykosiaki Psy w Potrzebie [Krzykosiaki Dogs in Need Foundation], Gorzyckie Stowarzyszenie ‘Zwierzęcy Zakątek’ [Gorzyce ‘Animal Corner Association], Pomorski Koci dom Tymczasowy [Pomeranian Temporary Cat Home] and Fundacja KOTANGENS [KOTANGENS Foundation]. These activities are often initiated by our employees, who are particularly sensitive to the fate of animals and who care about our planet. They are often volunteers in various organisations and shelters and encourage others through heir commitment.
Together with LPP, we provided 49 organisations with cash donations amounting to over PLN 712 thousand as well as donations in the form of 240 gift cards amounting to over PLN 51 thousand. Such forms of supporting our beneficiaries allow us to promptly respond to the most urgent needs.
In 2020, we initiated the largest aid project in our history so far – #LPPpomaga – which is aimed at providing assistance in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic to medical care facilities and persons who are most in need. In two editions of the action we provided support to over 300 entities in the amount of nearly PLN 7 million.
