Siam Mall has donated school materials to families in need
The Adeje councillor for social welfare, Isabel Fernández González, was in Siam Mall earlier this week to meet with the centre’s manager Hugo Gil and collect a donation of school materials for Adeje families in need.
Earlier this month the centre also hosted a school book exchange programme as well as giving out materials – note books, pencils and pens, etc. “The day was a huge success”, said Gil. “This was our first time to host an event of this kind and we were delighted with the outcome”. Next year they are already planning to repeat the exchange and hopefully get more people involved. “As part of Siam Mall’s ‘corporative social responsibility’ this is an important theme, and more so when we have the chance to talk to children involved”.
The Adeje councillor said “it is so important that society in involved in these kind of solidarity initiatives, and we are fortunate that many of our local institutions as well as individuals do contribute and work with our department to help those in the borough that are less fortunate. When Siam Mall got in touch with us to ask how they could help we came up with the book exchange idea as this is a huge cost for families particularly at the start of the school year. This was the first year and we look forward to many more similar initiatives as they really do benefit so many families here.”
