‘Tis the Season to Care: ACG Cares Raises Funds, Food & Clothes

This holiday season should be a season of celebration for all; this is why ACG Cares has been active throughout the semester gathering food and money to support people in need, making sure that they will also enjoy moments of joy and celebration with their beloved ones during the holiday season.

At the ACG Cares corner, the bin has been overflowing with toys and clothing. Volunteers have been boxing the clothing weekly throughout the semester. Clothes and toys will be given to SOZO, the Municipality of Salamina, and Kid and Family.

The J.S. Bailey library donated books that were made available in the DEREE main corridor for a donation of at least one euro. Odeon Cinemas generously donated two cinema tickets for lottery to raise money for food. The money collected will be donated to the Municipality of Ag. Paraskevi to buy food for families in need for Christmas and Easter, and the Municipality of Salamina that reached out this year as they have a large number of poor families in need and limited donations.

ACG Cares also hosted its annual Social Awareness & Solidarity Days Holiday Bazaar on December 3 and 4, during which NGOs had the opportunity to raise funds for and awareness about their causes. Fifteen NGOs took part: Agapo-Prosfero, Agkalia, Hara, Kid & Family, Make a Wish, MDA Hellas, SOZO for Children, TACT Hellas, Amymoni, Porta Anoikti, Kivotos Tou Kosmou, Boroume, Floga, Enosi Agona kata tou Neanikou Diaviti (for children’s diabetes), and the Cultural Association of Mikroasiaton in Ag. Paraskevi (Politistikos Syllogos Mikroasiaton Ag. Paraskevis).
