Local charity Collective Calling has expressed its thanks for the support received for its fire response appeal.
Collective Calling deployed teams of volunteers to areas affected by the fires to help support the local community with food assistance. This response was coordinated with the local town halls, and the Collective Calling team was able to reach affected persons one same day they were able to return to their towns after being evacuated. To date, 350 households have been reached through their response, which is approximately 1400 people that the charity were able to help.
Paul Carr, co-founder of Collective Calling said “It was amazing to see how the local community mobilised to help meet the immediate needs of those affected, the “Malaga walking football club” organized multiple drop-off points which generated tons of donated food items to come flooding in to the Collective Calling food bank, the “English International School” also donated food items, alongside first aid essentials and “Swans School” students supported our efforts helping to sort and pack the food parcels ready for distribution”, while Masonic Lodge Gemini 51 also donated essential food supplies.
Collective Calling has also opened its first “Tienda Solidaria Collective Calling” (charity shop) which is based in San Pedro de Alcantara, on Av, Pablo Ruiz Picasso. The money generated from the shop will go towards Collective Calling’s relief efforts. The shop has many designer brands at amazing prices, and Collective Calling also welcomes clothing donations.
If you require food assistance support, then Collective Calling invite you to come to the office and register for support. “We are here for the community”.
