The La Caleta fiestas committee donate goods worth €1,000 to families in need

The president of the 2016  La Caleta Fiestas committee, Manuel Luis Morales,  and vice president  Estrella Jorge, recently handed over €1,000 worth of goods to the Adeje department of social welfare, specifically items for baby care, including nappies, baby food, formula, etc.  The goods were handed over at the Adeje Food Bank and were gratefully received by the councillor for social welfare, Isabel Fernández González.

Councillor Fernández said she was “profoundly grateful for this solidarity gesture on the part of the La Caleta committee.  It’s these kind of actions that help us reach all the families in need in the Adeje borough and in particular those most vulnerable, most in need, the children”.

The Adeje Food Bank has been operated by the Adeje council for a number of years to ensure that families in the borough have access to basics during  hard times. As well as food, the council, through the offices of the department of social welfare, can help with other financial problems with a team of professional assessors and social welfare officers on hand.

In addition to this assistance, other departments are also helping families in difficulties, such as travel and book grants from the department of education for students in the borough, and social and training programmes created by the department of employment promotion, designed for those in danger of social exclusion.
