Gran Alacant Food Collection Point
Gran Alacant Commercial Centre, outside
Saturday 4th December 2010
Gran Alacant's shoppers
come out to support ASVEGA's Food Collection day
by donating some of their groceries to help people
in Santa Pola who find themselves unable to pay
their household bills and with no money for meals.
Organisers of the
collection ASVEGA, the European
Residents Neighbourhood Association of Gran Alacant
were stationed outside supermarkets and shops around
Gran Alacant collecting food for Cáritas,
the Spanish charity in Santa Pola.
Food from the collections
will be passed to the Servicios Sociales Department
at the Santa Pola Town Hall where they will then
distribute the food to the charity.
Cáritas is a national
charity in Spain that helps people in precarious
and / or social exclusion.
