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.
