| Faced with the crisis derived from the coronavirus, the Archena City Council is preparing to help more than 2,000 families in need | The Solidarity Pantry of the Archena City Council, dependent on the Department of Social Services, has been supplied with 10,000 kilos more of food from the European Aid Fund for the most disadvantaged people (FEAD).
The Solidarity Pantry arises during the State of Alarm, with the aim of guaranteeing food to families in vulnerable situations in the municipality generated by the coronavirus crisis.
"We have distributed more than 100,000 kilos of food, we have assisted more than 2,500 families, more than 7,500 people and we must be prepared to face some very complicated months," said the Mayor, Patricia Fernández, present in the solidarity pantry during the reception of foods. In addition to FEAD, companies, businesses and individuals in the municipality also collaborate with donations of food to the Solidarity Pantry.
Similarly, another of the fundamental pillars is the Municipal Volunteer Plan, which actively participates in the organization of this pantry.
"Without the help and disinterested collaboration of companies, businesses and volunteers we could not cover all the needs.
The town of Archena and I personally will always be grateful to them," said the Mayor herself in her statements.
The Department of Social Services is working on Coordination with Cáritas and the Red Cross of the municipality to avoid duplications in the service and to reach as many families as possible.
