Fundación Cepsa donates fuel cards to Huelva food bank
15 Mar 2018
- The cards can be used to cover part of the cost of refueling the vehicles used by the organization in its charity work
- The foundation made a pledge to donate 20 liters of fuel for each of its volunteers taking part in the Big Food Bank Collection in December
Fundación Cepsa in Huelva has donated fuel cards to the Food Bank to buy 380 liters of fuel for the vehicles it uses to carry out its charity work. Fundación Cepsa representative in Huelva, Teresa Millán Romero, presented the fuel cards to the Food Bank’s president, Juan Manuel Díaz Cabrera, who took the opportunity to tell her about the Food Bank’s work across the province last year and the future projects it has planned.
A record amount of food was collected and distributed in the province in 2017: upwards of 3 million kilos, which meant more families could be helped.
This donation from Fundación Cepsa was part of the charity campaign to collect food held last December by the Spanish Food Banks, which Cepsa staff and their families in Spain were involved in through the Corporate Volunteering Program of Fundación Cepsa. The foundation pledged to donate liters of fuel for each of its volunteers.
Fundación Cepsa has helped organize the food collection campaigns run in Huelva for several years. Furthermore, a charity food bank project has been handed a Social Value Award by the foundation. These awards are handed out annually to raise awareness of, and provide funding to, initiatives run by organizations and groups working to enhance the well-being and social inclusion of people across the province.
Fundación Cepsa’s social action
Along with this charity work, Fundación Cepsa is in charge of channeling the company's social action in the shape of activities focused on the social needs of the communities and towns where Cepsa carries out its activities. The Social Value Awards are one of its most well-known annual activities, supporting the charitable work of projects in Spain and abroad through donations of more than €350,000.
