HOCH is a company that prides itself on its traditional values.
Our social commitment is evidenced by our support for numerous charitable organisations and associations.
With our roots firmly in our local region, we also focus our support primarily on regional causes.
We are particularly keen on benefiting children and young people.
These are just some examples of the organisations we support:
The Heidelberg forest pirates
The Waldpiraten (Forest Pirate) Camp is run by the German foundation for children with cancer – the Deutsche Kinderkrebsstiftung – and is co-financed and co-supported by parents’ groups for the benefit of children with cancer.
The camp offers fun leisure activities in the school holidays for children with cancer and their siblings, enabling the participants to recover from their illness through undertaking exciting new challenges.
The Würzburg parents’ initiative for children with leukemia and tumours
Founded in 1984, this charitable association works under the umbrella of the German charity for child leukemia and cancer research (Deutsche Leukämie-Forschungshilfe Aktion für krebskranke Kinder e.V.) in Bonn.
The association is run by volunteers from families affected by the disease, who have made it their mission to provide assistance and support for other families whose children are also suffering.
Emergency help for children
The mission of the charity Kleine Patienten in Not e.V. is to provide assistance for children in emergency situations.
A symbol of the support, comfort and hope this charity provides for children in crisis situations is its initiative to supply the emergency services, such as the fire service and police, as well as children’s clinics, with teddy bears.
Workshops for living
The workshops provided by Lebenshilfe Werkstätten offer people with disabilities and learning difficulties a route into working life.
These modern workshops provide a range of employment, producing goods and services for the general labour market. Personal strengths are promoted and affirmed to assist with the participants’ future working lives.
