Valencia, (Spain) -- Collecting Food for the Needy
During March and April, a group of residents from the Albalat Student Residence collected 500 liters of milk and 200 boxes of biscuits to help the parish school of Santiago Apostol. As a result of the economic crisis and delays in financial assistance, many schools are unable to cover their minimum expenses and have been forced to cut back on their services. This is the situation that the Santiago Apostol parish school found itself in, given its high percentage of immigrant pupils from needy families. Thanks to this help, the Santiago Apostol school was able to continue offering its children breakfast, which for some of the pupils is their first nourishing food of the day.
