ColdKit donates a coldroom

ColdKit has decided to support the center “Pato Amarillo” in Orcasitas (Spain) with a donation of a coldroom. The center provides food assistance to more than 700 families in a difficult situation, many who have small children and are facing long-term unemployment.

ColdKit met the center through the non-governmental organization ”Olvidados”, which supports these families with all kinds of donations, including food. The chiller donated will preserve perishable food for longer.

”Pato Amarillo” is run by volunteers in the area, mostly women, who engage in ceaseless activity to help the community. These volunteers take care of clothes, washing, ironing and sorting donated clothes. They have established a system to loan festive outfits like wedding dresses and communion outfits, which allows the families to make full use of this service.

Pilar, a 76-year old volunteer who has been leading the center for 28 years, has an enormous energy and an endless enthusiasm. She has appeared several times in the media as a spokeswoman for the center, being a model of solidarity and civil action. In January, the center mobilized to deliver gifts to over 500 children in the area. Pilar distributes bags of food to 45 families every day.

Besides ColdKit’s modular coldroom, among its most urgent needs, the center needs milk, yogurt, vegetables and cooking oil. These donations can be made by food businesses that are willing to donate their surplus produce and by individuals. At the moment, “Pato Amarillo” also needs a van car to be able to collect the donations that are made.

If you want to contribute, please get in contact by phone with Adela (0034 686 696 736) or with Inma (0034 609 11 03 45). You can also send an email to info@olvidados.org.
