Even though the principal beneficiaries were the children, elders and adults in need, the idea of this campaign was also to help the students to get involved in the humanitarian actions, to develop their empathy and to understand better their society problems. And most of them, from the higher classes, wanted not just to donate food, but also to participate on the distribution of the packages, along with the volunteers of the Association.
Besides the students and the teachers from the “Mircea Cristea” High Schools, School no. 30, School no. 14, Kindergarden no.3 and School no.33, within the Campaign got also involved “Autoindutriala Fortuna S.A.”, from Brasov, which 500 kg of apples.
“All the packages got to those in need, who are in the care of the Association, like the year before. Is the second time we organize this Campaign, also in the Christmas Eve, to help the poor families, for which the winter perios is not easy to pass. We also warm up for the “Together on holidays” Campaign, in which we also collect clothes, shoes, books and many other gifts, besides food. We are very pleased with the support of educational institutions involved and, above all, the enthusiasm of the children and adolescents who donated food and even participate, together with us, in the distribution of packages,” says the Association’s President, Adina Gal.
