On December 22, 2020, World Needs concluded a Christmas initiative with the collaboration of an Association to support homeless people in Porto.
After contacting several institutions associated with this cause, we received a positive answer, which aimed at providing a symbolic “gift” to its users. World Needs readily accepted the challenge, and started yet another activity that would culminate in the success desired by everyone.
We started by defining that the “gift” that we would give would be something useful and in accordance with the needs of the 97 users of this Association. In this way we decided what winter material could meet what we needed and started contacting textile companies that could help us in the supply and distribution of winter clothes.
It is in this sense that SIGNA Design appears, to whom we thank in advance for the availability shown since the beginning. Together we proceeded to order 100 winter kits composed each by a hat, scarf and gloves.
In this context, it is important to mention the essential support of CIVILRIA, through monetary sponsorship, without which it would not have been possible to acquire the material.
In addition to the winter kits mentioned above, we also had the opportunity to join forces to provide support also through food. In this chapter we counted on the precious collaboration of PANEGARA, which provided 84 boxes of wheat-based products, as well as the MINA DA ESTAÇÃO pastry shop in São João da Madeira, which made available a wide variety of cakes and sweets.
So, with everyone's help, we hope to have contributed to sweeten and warm up the Christmas of those who need it the most.
