Local Charity


Hanseatic Help

Hanseatic Help is the current, biennially elected local charity for which we sponsor awareness events, promote fundraising, and encourage member involvement.

Hanseatic Help is a grassroots organization initiated in 2015 in Hamburg. The organization helps those in need by collecting and delivering basic necessities to over 300 facilities and shelters in Hamburg that serve refugees, homeless persons, low-income families, and women and children needing protection or support. Relief supplies that are not needed in Hamburg are delivered in cooperation with other aid organizations to crisis regions such as Syria, Iraq, and Ukraine.

What We Do

  • Periodic drives for donations of clothing or hygiene articles
  • Fundraiser events (raffles and/or sales of handmade or used items) to buy needed goods (e.g. underwear, school supplies)
  • Hands-on help: sort clothing at the Hanseatic Help warehouse, work in the Hanseatic Help Stores that supply Ukrainian refugees with necessities, pack school bags
  • Reuse or recycle unusable textile donations
