MORE THAN 16 TONS OF FOOD AND CLOTHING COLLECTED FOR THE MOST NEEDY

ESTEVE's "Eat Hunger Up" and "Rekindle Your Clothes" internal campaigns were organized in the summer and in Christmas to help meet growing social needs.

14,800 kilograms of food -48% more than in 2013- and 1,500 kilos of clothing will be distributed among needy families by several charities.

Este año ESTEVE ha decidido estar más cerca de los que más lo necesitan, ampliando su campaña solidaria "Cómete el hambre" y lanzando una nueva campaña de "Haz renacer tu ropa" para poder realizar una mayor contribución ante las crecientes necesidades sociales.

La campaña "Cómete el hambre", consistente en donar alimentos básicos no perecederos, se ha convocado en Navidad y en verano, lo cual se ha traducido en 14.800 kilos de alimentos. La mitad de esta cantidad, que supone un 48% más respecto al año anterior, ha sido donada directamente por los trabajadores y la otra mitad corresponde a la aportación de la compañía. Todo se distribuirá entre los más necesitados a través de distintas organizaciones sociales, como Bancos de Alimentos y otras entidades benéficas para distribuirlos localmente.

This year, ESTEVE decided to be closer to the most needy by expanding its "Eat Hunger Up" solidarity campaign and by launching the new "Rekindle Your Clothes" campaign to help meet growing social needs.

The "Eat Hunger Up" campaign (donation of non-perishable basic food items) was organized in Christmas and in the summer, and yielded 14,800 kilos of food. Half of this amount -48% more than in 2013- was directly donated by workers, and the other half was provided by the Company. All will be distributed among the most needy through different social organizations, such as Food Banks and other charities for local distribution.

For the sixth consecutive year, ESTEVE employees from Spain and from our subsidiaries in Mexico, China, Turkey, Italy and Portugal collaborate with "Eat Hunger Up". This is a solidarity initiative that also involves voluntary work: in collaboration with the Food Bank of Barcelona, 74 ESTEVE volunteers participated in the categorization of food donated at the Gran Recapte.

The "Rekindle Your Clothes" campaign consists of second-hand clothing donation by ESTEVE workers, and two campaigns made to coincide with wardrobe renovation have been carried out at the ESTEVE centers of Catalonia. In total, 1,500 kilos of clothing were delivered to the Formació I Treball Foundation of Cáritas, a body devoted to the occupational insertion of people with personal, social and occupational difficulties. This Foundation manages the provision of clothing and other resources to low-income families.

This year, once again, ESTEVE wishes to contribute to alleviate the social exclusion and poverty of many people who have been hit by the economic crisis in an environment of growing social needs.
