Over Christmas, the Cap Vermell business group launched a charity campaign called Kilo Litro to collect all types of non-perishable foods, clothing, toys in good condition and essential hygiene products.
The campaign began on 4th December and lasted one month, and when it ended Cap Vermell Group, represented by Marina Núñez, its Director of Human Resources, presented Càritas Manacor with all the materials that had been collected at both Cap Vermell Country Club, the leading sports and leisure centre in Canyamel, and the Park Hyatt Mallorca hotel complex, owned by the business group.
Mostly there were toys donated, but there were also tens of kilos of non-perishable foods such as pasta, rice, food cans, pulses, milk, biscuits, tuna and personal hygiene products including gel, shampoo, toothpaste and deodorant.
Everything will go to the neediest families in the municipality of Manacor. This was explained by Antònia Socias, a social worker at Càritas Manacor, who stated that the not-for-profit association is currently working with eleven families in the area that have financial and work difficulties, totalling around fifty people.
Meanwhile, the toys donated will firstly go to a repair workshop in Palma where they will be cleaned, checked and repaired if necessary, ready for the Christmas season next year. And once again, the recipients will be the children of vulnerable families.Mallorca
