A farmer friend of Fondacio has just made a donation to Fondacio consisting of 450 sacks of potatoes which means a little over 11,000 kilos of potatoes!
The truck with the transport of these potatoes arrived at Centro Los Almendros last Monday, July 6th, where, thanks to the help of a group of young volunteers and some people who work at Centro Los Almendros called especially for this purpose, they proceeded to store the sacks in the Sala Las Araucarias where they will be better preserved.
The distribution of this merchandise quickly started with the four common pots with which Fondacio is collaborating, Las Araucarias, Las Canteras 1, El Bosque 2 and La Pincoya (see news). The important amount of potato sacks made it possible to also share with Fundación Cristo Vive, with the Parish of the Nuestra Señora de los Pobres sector and with the Padre Hurtado Institute, a school located in the commune of Huechuraba.
The project of solidarity food boxes that Fondacio is developing with Claro Chile will also be able to include this month a sack of potatoes for each participating family, which surely in addition to being consumed can be shared with the closest neighbors. This reminds us that in a dynamic of Solidarity we are all called to both receive and give.
