Mogi Guaçu Formare students organize food drive

DSC_0048

Families served by institutions that are part of the Federation of Charity Organizations of Mogi Guaçu (FEAG) will have fuller tables this Christmas. That is because the International Paper Formare School Project students have been working since October on organizing a food drive to make the end of the year more delicious for many people.

Donations were made voluntarily by Mogi Guaçu IP professionals, who donated non-perishable food items from October 31 to November 25. The students were entirely responsible for the operational part of the campaign: from distributing pamphlets to publicize the drive to counting the items in order to assemble food baskets.

A total of 205 items were raised, surpassing the 150 kg mark of non-perishable food raised the year before. Products were delivered on December 5 to the FEAG, which serves 23 charity institutions in Mogi Guaçu, working in different segments: services and support for children and adolescents, support for needy families, people with disabilities, services for migrants services and the homeless and elder care.

Participation by Formare students in campaigns on commemorative dates reinforces IP’s commitment to volunteer actions, showing young project participants that contributions of any kind to transform people’s lives are worth making, both for those helping and for those receiving support.
