Cruz Roja exclusion social

Cruz Roja

Specsavers Opticas in Benidorm collected over 200kg of food for the Cruz Roja during their week-long food collection campaign and were delighted with the generosity of local residents.

The food collected has been delivered to the Cruz Roja Benidorm’s food bank and donated to needy families at risk of social exclusion. This food bank helps between 80-100 people per week and has been required to respond to demand more than doubling due to the crisis.

The Head of the Food Collection Programme, Mara Martinez Olivan, explains why donations are so important, “There are so many people at risk of social exclusion and we are working on a very limited budget, therefore even small donations of food really make a difference. 200kg of food is a fantastic result over one week and will supplement our existing supplies to enable us to help so many people in need. Many thanks to Specsavers Benidorm for arranging the collection and all those people who donated.”
