The help and hope foundation was set up in 2005 by Stefan Heinig and other committed entrepreneurs to give disadvantaged children and young people the chance of a better future.
Woolworth has regularly supported the foundation with donations in kind and financial contributions since 2010. In 2020, we received the "Gold Sponsor" award from help and hope for this commitment.
We have not sold plastic bags since 2016 and instead offer our customers sustainable and reusable PET carrier bags. This allows us to improve our environmental footprint and support projects run by the help and hope foundation at the same time. For every PET carrier bag sold, Woolworth donates 5 cents to the charitable foundation.
You will also find donation plates for the help and hope foundation in every Woolworth store. Our customers can support the important work of the foundation with even the smallest amounts.
