Atresmedia Volunteers join again the volunteering activity in the Santa María Josefa Soup Kitchen, two years after the outbreak of the pandemic. The center is located in the Madrid neighborhood of Vallecas and is run by Siervas de Jesús de la Caridad nuns. Maintaining the commitment that Atresmedia always had with this social entity, a group of 15 volunteers -Group employees and their families or friends- will help for six days this year to carry out the daily tasks of the center.
During the pandemic, the dining room continued to serve more than 700 people without resources in the area every day, adapting its activity to the health situation. Now they give food through containers and weekly bags for families, since due to health protocol they still cannot serve food inside the facilities. Apart from preparing and delivering the meals, the Atresmedia volunteers also help with cleaning and maintenance tasks at the centre.
For more than nine years, Atresmedia has been committed to the work of this soup kitchen through its Corporate Volunteer Program. A volunteer service that has become a benchmark project of the program and in which more than 280 volunteers have already participated to help alleviate hunger in their own city.
