Social project raises food to help families struggling during a pandemic
NDTV/Record TV carried out a food collection campaign throughout the State of Santa Catarina. Called the 2021 Solidarity Marathon, the initiative benefited thousands of families facing financial difficulties amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
Multilog, one of the partner companies in the campaign, donated 737 food baskets (R$ 50 thousand) to the following social institutions: Associação Amparo People with Cancer – Itajaí (387 units); Padre Fachini Foundation – Joinville (100 units); Sementes do Futuro – Joinville (100 units) and Lar Betânia – Blumenau (150 food baskets).
“This year, Multilog turned 25 and made a point of participating in this action, as it understands the importance of working with the community to reduce the impact of the pandemic as much as possible,” said Djalma Vilela, president of Multilog.
The campaign had the participation of several companies and supermarkets and stores in Santa Catarina. The project began on April 10th, with collection points in all regions covered by Grupo ND’s communication vehicles. The Solidarity Marathon has been held for over 20 years by Grupo N, which was awarded in 2020 by ADVB SC as a corporate citizen for the initiative.
