Last month Abanca delivered 4,386 toys collected to Cáritas –a Spanish Church organization dedicated to charity and social actions- during the solidarity campaign “The illusion grows when shared” (“La ilusión crece cuando se comparte” in Spanish) that the Galician financial institution started in order to help the most disadvantaged families this last Christmas. Know more about the donation project and all the details about this Christmas gifts thanks to Abanca.
The director of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) of Abanca, Tatiana Suárez Cancelo, was in charge of delivering in A Coruña to Paula Lobagueira and Rosa García Vilariño, representatives of Cáritas, the toys received. In Vigo, the territorial director of Abanca, Jorge Martínez, and volunteers of Abanca gave donated toys to the director of Caritas in the city, Gonzalo Dávila.
The toys were donated by the employees of the Galician entity and also by all the people who approached between the 12 and 23 of December to the two authorized premises in Vigo and A Coruña. In addition to that, Abanca made available to all those who wanted to collaborate a joint account number to make their own donations. The money raised through this account went to buy toys.
In 2017, Abanca continues to develop its CSR plans and all the projects thought for this year.
Abanca guarantees the integration and removal of barriers for sensitive groups, and are always committed to all those people at risk of social exclusion. The institution is known for being the axis of awareness of those who are affected by catastrophic situations and all its programs are thought for those people.
During the two weeks that the toy collection campaign lasted, the two premises authorized by Abanca were attended by employees of the financial institution that participate in its Corporate Volunteering program.
In total, 95 volunteers dedicated their time to collect and organize all the toys received. In addition, Caritas volunteers were also attending the premises and participating in the tasks of collecting and organizing the toys.
