Eastern collect 2014

During the Ester Fasting period of 2014, Caritas Eparchial Oradea Association organized a food collection inside Greek Catholic churches in Oradea: "Sfantul Nicolae" Cathedral, "Maica Domnului" Monastery, "Sfanta Treime" Church, "Sfantul Gheorghe" Church “Inaltarea Domnului” Church, "Schimbarea la Fata" Church, “ Sfantul Gheorghe” Seminary Church, in Haieu and Marghita parish, and between 8 - 18 April 2014 The Association was present in Selgros, being also present in Era Shopping Park (on Calea Aradului Street) between 12- 18 April 2014, to collect non-perishable food for poor families and needy people from the community.
The food was collected with the help of volunteers. Every Sunday from the Fasting Period and every day of that particular week, 78 volunteers, who are 15 to 61 years old, got involved in the food collection organized inside the two stores.
Those who had chosen to participate to this collection made 412 hours of volunteer work. If we had to consider the work hours of the volunteers from financial point of view we would end up with the amount of 1.952 lei.
The basic products donated to this food collection are as follows:          
Church food collection: oil (182 litres), flour (245 kg), sugar (164 kg), rice (126 kg), pasta (105 packets), different cans (136 pcs), sweets (28 pieces) etc with an inventory value of 3,727 lei.
Selgros and Era Shopping Park food collection: oil (175 litres), flour (203 kg), sugar (146 kg), rice (78 kg), pasta (111 packets), different cans (148 pcs), sweets (232 pieces) etc with an inventory value of 3,870 lei.
Some persons chose to donate money. The value of their donation is 9.996 lei.
The collected products will provide food packages throughout the year, for families whose children attend "Gabriele" day centre and those who are in Home Care Centre database. These families have low incomes, insufficient to provide even a meal a day. They use the money they earn to pay their bills or the rent. We also give food packages to single and old persons - who use a package of food for an entire month. This time, as well, a significant part of the collected food shall be used for "Maria Rosa" Social Centre where the lunch for 70 people is prepared daily.
On behalf of our beneficiaries we want to thank our partners who have made the organisation of food collection possible and to all those who made this donations.
