The end of the year 2021 was a period rich in donations for the Local Unit of the Red Cross of Carcassonne. Many volunteers have contributed to help those in need during these holiday periods.
A great outpouring of generosity from college students
Two Red Cross volunteers went to inform students of the Grazailles college. The ESF has launched the “Solidarity Fortnight” operation. About fifteen students, with the help of the Red Cross, were made aware of volunteering and the solidarity action of this institution. The pupils then relayed the message to their respective classes and more than 35 solidarity boxes as well as foodstuffs were given to the Red Cross on the eve of the holidays: warm clothes, hygiene products. , festive products, toys for children … These boxes were also accompanied by little words wishing a happy new year, and given to the homeless and to beneficiaries. They also collected foodstuffs distributed to families in need.
Toys for Christmas
Two members of the Carcassonne round table came to drop off the toys that had been collected since the beginning of December for the Carcassonne local unit. These toys were given to the children of the beneficiaries.
Boxes full of happiness
The little hands of rural families have prepared parcels for the beneficiaries and the marauders, in order to give a little moment of joy during the holidays. The rural hearth of Bram came to deposit “shoe boxes” collected by its members. These boxes contained, as for those of the college of Grazailles, clothes, hygiene products …
Also, individuals brought boxes to the town hall and they were distributed to several associations including the local unit of the Red Cross of Carcassonne and were given during the marauding.
Also, the Aude Red Cross has renewed the solidarity operation in partnership with the CCAS de Montolieu and the collaboration of students from the village’s primary and nursery school. All the gift boxes came with a personalized greeting card from the children.
A meal for all
On Sunday, December 26, 2021, a festive meal was offered by Rotary and prepared by the Carcassonne Red Cross and distributed in the premises at 2 rue Charles Fourier, by members of Rotary and volunteers from the local unit.
