Thanks to the solidarity contributions of Familia Torres collaborators and acquaintances, the Fundación Familia Torres has made the first donation of school supplies to benefit the Alt Penedès Red Cross.

30 packages have been delivered consisting of a squared A4 notebook, a white sheet A4 notebook, a color package, pencils and pens, an eraser, a pencil sharpener, children’s scissors, a bar glue and several plasticine bars.

During the health pandemic we are experiencing, helping families with school-age children who do not have resources has become one of the priorities of our foundation.

We again appreciate the contributions received and the support of our office supplies provider, Espai, for joining the initiative.

We continue with the fundraising. No matter how small your contribution, it will be of great help to these children and their families.

Familia Torres collaborates, through the donation of food, with the solidarity initiative ‘Comer Contigo’, promoted by La Vanguardia’s channel ‘Comer’ with some chefs from Barcelona, with the aim to feed those who need it most during the current health emergency. Through its Foundation, the Penedès family winery has donated more than 2,000 liters of olive oil and about 1,000 kilos of basic food, from the distribution company of gourmet products Torres Import.

With the participation in this culinary project, the winery wishes to thank the solidarity of the restoration, despite the difficulties that the sector is going through due to the forced closure of its establishments, and to help those in vulnerable situations, one of the objectives of the Foundation Torres family who regularly collaborates with the ‘Banco de los Alimentos’.

‘Comer contigo’ delivers more than 1,000 meals a day in Barcelona prepared by a team of chefs led by Romain Fornell – from Caelis and Casa Leopoldo – to centers such as the Fundació Arrels, Cáritas, Madre Teresa de Calcuta, Hospital Clínic and Hospital del Mar, and works in coordination with other similar projects such as Health Warriors, Food for Good and World Central Kitchen to serve food to those who do not have the means to get it in full confinement.

Fundación Familia Torres continues to collaborate in the fight against Coronavirus with the donation of 30,000 surgical protection masks to different local and collective entities according to their needs. The donation of this material acquired through the intermediation of its subsidiary in China.

Almost half of the masks, 14,500 units, have been sent to the Consorci Sanitari de l’Alt Penedès Garraf as thanks to the work carried out by the health personnel; Another 14,500 masks have been distributed, with the collaboration of this entity, to about twelve nursing homes in the territory through the social health team that coordinates them and the NGO Aldeas Infantiles SOS. The Mas Albornà occupational center for people with disabilities, an organization with which the winery regularly collaborates, and the Familia Torres retirement community have received 500 masks.

The Torres family has also made its technology available to health professionals. For a month, the winery has been using its 3D printers to manufacture face protection screens, participating in a local initiative that brings together individuals, companies and entities, with the support of the Vilafranca city council. The maker team has already jointly produced 1,900 units with which it has covered the needs of health personnel from different centers in Vilafranca and the region.
