Charity begins at home!

Donation by children from 6th class, Las Torres, CEIP

The 6th class students from CEIP Las Torres recently called into the Adeje food bank centre to hand over a large donation of food and hygienic products . The class are taking part in the Tincer II Solidarity Olympics which asks participating schools to make a solidarity donation in the borough they live.

The Adeje councillor for social welfare, Isabel Fernández González, was delighted to accept the donation and told the children it would be very welcome and given to those most in need.

“This group of young people have worked on this marvellous initiative and their willingness to show concern for other people is to be congratulated. We are delighted to see this centre, and the other schools in Adeje, teaching values such as solidarity as a primary axis in developing ideas and actions. On behalf of the council I thank them and invite everyone to work on these kind of initiatives that help improve the lives of all our people.”

The councillor presented a special certificate to the students thanking them for their donation and congratulating them on their positive thinking.

It’s all relative – what might seem like nothing to you could mean a happier Christmas for someone else. So take just a few minutes of your time to pick up either a gift for a child or some non-perishable food item and drop it into the San Sebastian Commercial Centre in La Caleta this Thursday, December 19th. From 10am to 8pm people will be collecting on behalf of the Adeje social services division to help those in need, and there are many.
During the day there will be other events taking place.
