The U3A has made many donations and contributions to worthy causes in the Marina Baixa region.
We have a charity raffle at every General Meeting all the proceeds are donated to several local charities these include local food banks and hospitals. The association also hold and support several fundraising activities throughout the year.
Charitable Gifts for La Nucia and L'Alfaz del Pi Food Banks.
The Committee decided that in view of the difficult time which many families are experiencing because of loss of income caused by the Covid-19 crisis the U3A Marina Baixa should use its Charity Fund to help those in need. Our Charity Coordinator met representatives of La Nucia and L'Alfaz Town Halls and together bought various food items to the value of €500 each. The owner of the Dialprix supermarket assisted with the selection which consisted of both fresh produce and dry foods such as noodles and rice as well as long-life milk identifying the best value of the items and sold them at cost-price less a discount. The Food Banks have storage facilities and make sure that the recipients really do need help to avoid abuse of the generosity of the various charitable donations.
