Solidarity Christmas Marathon #YoSoyNavidad

Solidarity Christmas Marathon #YoSoyNavidad

Femete Federación provincial de empresas del metal y nuevas tecnologías de Santa Cruz de Tenerife (Provincial Federation of companies in metal and new technologies of Santa Cruz de Tenerife), a non-profit organization in San Cristóbal de La Laguna, has organised the I Maratón Navideño Solidario (Solidarity Christmas Marathon). 

The objective of this campaign is so companies and individuals can gift new toys and non-perishable food to needy families, through entities such as Cáritas, Cruz Roja (Red Cross) and Aldeas Infantiles (SOS Children's Villages). Between December 1 to 18 (incl), you can donate toys or non-perishable foods by leaving them at the Femete headquarters (Calle Mazo 7, Polígono Industrial de Los Majuelos, La Laguna), from Monday to Friday between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. where the material will be stored, in strict compliance with the anti-COVID security protocols. Subsequently, Femete will deliver the gifts on December 21 to the entities that will guarantee their delivery to the final recipient person or family. 

This Femete initiative is developed within the #YoSoyResponsable initiative that aims to promote the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) scheduled for 2030. The 1st Solidarity Christmas Marathon #YoSoyNavidad also aims to promote the consumption of local products (in the case of food, those with a certificate of production in the Canary Islands or with an ecological certificate) and the consumption of handmade toys or from Canarian shops and produced with sustainable materials such as wood or recycled cardboard.
