Eastern collect 2012

Eastern collect 2012

During the Great Lent 2012, we organized a collection of food in three Greek Catholic churches in Oradea („Sfantul Nicolae” Cathedral, „Maica Domnului” Church, „Sfanta Treime” Church from Oradea). Believers have purchased or surrendered to different foods to donate them to those whose fate has been less favorable.
The food has been collected with the help of volunteers. Every Sunday of the Great Lent, 31 volunteers, aged between 16 and 65, were involved in the collection that we organized.
Those who choose to engage in this collection have done 150 hours of volunteering. If we were to account for the volunteers working hours we arrive at the amount of 244 euro.
At the food collection were gathered basic foods, namely: oil (146 litters), flour (228 kg), sugar (198 kg), rice (110 kg), pasta (129 packages) etc.., with an inventory value of 3.794 lei. Some believers have chosen to donate the money.
Cash donations were worth 1.963 euro.
From the collected food we provide food packages for the families whom kids attend “Gabriele” Day Center. These families have small incomes, insufficient for ensuring at least one meal a day. From the money these people earn, they pay their bills or the rent. Also, food packages support single people, elderly, who household themselves from a package for months. Starting this year, a significant part of the collected goods will be for “Maria Rosa” Social Center where daily we prepare the meal for 50 persons.
For all those who donated we thank them and wish them in the name of the beneficiaries blessed and happy Holydays!
