Eastern collect 2013

Eastern collect 2013

During the Great Lent 2013, we organized a collection of food in Greek Catholic churches in Oradea Catedrala „Sfântul Nicolae”, Mănăstirea „Maica Domnului”, Biserica „Sfânta Treime” din Oradea, Biserica „Sfântul Gheorghe”, Biserica Înălţarea Domnului, Biserica „Schimbarea la faţă”, Biserica Seminarului „Sfântul Gheorghe”), Churches in Haieu. 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, 32 volunteers, aged between 13 and 63, were involved in the collection that we organized.
Those who choose to engage in this collection have done 224 hours of volunteering. If we were to account for the volunteers working hours we arrive at the amount of 231 euro.
At the food collection were gathered basic foods, namely: oil (140 litters), flour (157 kg), sugar (127 kg), rice (106 kg), pasta (122 packages) etc.., with an inventory value of 691 Euro. Some believers have chosen to donate the money.
Cash donations were worth 2.210 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 70 persons.
For all those who donated we thank them and wish them in the name of the beneficiaries blessed and happy Holydays!
