Food distribution operation in les Vernets – 2,900 parcels distributed and 320 volunteers in action
Some 2,900 food parcels were distributed on Saturday at les Vernets ice rink – 300 more than the previous weekend. A total of 892 donors contributed to these parcels, which also included donations from the Partage Foundation. Countless contributions and a large donation from Chaîne du Bonheur enabled Caravane de Solidarité to purchase any goods that were missing. The coordination, under the auspices of the City of Geneva, improved once again to facilitate the flow of beneficiaries, some of whom arrived very early in the morning. The distribution operation began at 8 a.m. in order to reduce waiting times and get ahead of the bad weather that was moving in.
