This initiative was carried out some weeks before Christmas with a great campaign of gathering unperishable food and toys for all the classrooms with the collaboration of JAR (Augustinian Recollect Youth) distributed by the solidarity centers of Valladolid, Palencia and Angola.
This tons of food collected during the weeks before Christmas by the volunteers from the College of St. Augustine of Valladolid were distributed by Cáritas of the parishes of Santo Torribio, La Pilarica and Holy Family as well as the Asociación Alegría the barrio of San Pedro, Sisters of the Holy Cross, Augustinian nuns with the mobility that exists in the country. To fight the spread of ébola, materials will be sent to Angola.
