The Spanish Red Cross and the Cordovan clothing company Silbon have just signed an obligation agreement that will provide shelter to a number of families at risk of exclusion from the city.
Specifically, Silbon has made a donation of clothing to the humanitarian institution, which will be distributed among the homeless, immigrants, refugees and families in vulnerable situations.
Trousers, jumpers, shirts, blazers and scarves are just some of the items that Red Cross volunteers will distribute in the coming weeks.
With this collaboration, and as stated in the text of the agreement signed by the two parties, Silbon “has resolved to actively engage in solidarity actions, through the contribution of resources destined for the upkeep of social programmes developed by the Spanish Red Cross in their Social Intervention Plan “.
The agreement has a duration of one year, which will be extended automatically unless expressly denounced by either party.
For Cándida Ruiz, provincial president of the Red Cross, “agreements like this show the social commitment of a good part of the Cordovan business community”. He continued, “We are very grateful for their offer to join forces with our daily work to improve the living conditions of the most vulnerable.”
Pablo López, Silbon’s co-founder, emphasised for his part that, “For Silbon, it is an honour to join the commendable and necessary work carried out by the Red Cross. We framed this action within the Corporate Social Responsibility plan that we launched in 2015, with the aim of contributing to the progress of the communities we live in, promoting equality, diversity and ethical behaviour. “
