Social commitment

GIVE AND TAKE

The Pekkip family has felt at home and welcomed in Heidelberg right from the very start and is still very connected to the Rhine-Neckar region. Above all, the warmth they experienced from its people and the welcoming culture of the city of Heidelberg have paved the way for the company’s success today. A solid reason why the Pekkip family has been very much involved in social projects for many years. Their commitment is to not only give something back – but to set a positive cultural and social example by their actions.

Youth training centre of SV Sandhausen sports club

As the main sponsor, PEKKIP Holding is currently providing new shirts for the F1 junior team and sponsored the inauguration of the new building for the youth training centre. As well as many other smaller projects, PEKKIP Holding also supports the younger athletes through their training to help them towards achieving their great aspirations.

OnkoAktiv

Lale Jakob volunteers on the advisory board of the OnkoAktiv network, an integrating network that specialises in the physical rehabilitation of cancer patients by systematic physical training. You can find out more about the network here.

RNZ Christmas campaign

Every year PEKKIP Holding donates to the RNZ newspaper’s Christmas campaign to spread Christmas cheer. The large pre-Christmas fundraiser is held every year in cooperation with the social services of the city of Heidelberg, the Rhine-Neckar region and its charities. What’s really special about it: not a single deduction for administrative costs means that every cent raised goes directly to the region’s needy.

St. Josef’s children’s home

From money and other donations to organising transport for group outings and daily trips – for decades the Pekkip family has been involved with all their heart and soul with plenty of organisational support for the children of the St. Josef’s children’s home in Schriesheim/Altenbach. You can find out more information about the children’s home here.

Help for refugees and volunteers

In the light of recent events and mindful of the history of this immigrant family which itself had to flee from Turkey to Germany in times of change, PEKKIP HOLDING supports various initiatives for refugees in Heidelberg.
