Red Cross acknowledges FCC employees’ charitable work

With their involvement in the campaign last Christmas, FCC employees helped to provide toys requested by many families facing economic hardship. Through its commitment and by implementing initiatives like this, FCC is raising awareness about these issues, thereby encouraging more people to help those that are most in need.

During the event, Carlos M. Jarque emphasised that “the participation of employees in this type of voluntary action is a further demonstration of the solidarity and support of the people who make up the FCC Group. From my position here, I would like to thank all those who collaborated in such an enthusiastic way in this charitable initiative”.

Both organisations share a similar outlook in that they seek to foster wellbeing among people, “collaborative ties between the Spanish Red Cross and companies is crucial”, said the chairman of the Spanish Red Cross, Javier Senent García, during the meeting.

Other charitable activity

This is not the first time that FCC has taken part in a charitable initiative like this. In 2015, FCC employees donated around 2,440 children’s books to the Red Cross during the Christmas campaign “This Christmas Will Tell a Tale”. In collaboration with the Food Bank, FCC also staged various campaigns for collecting non-perishable and basic needs goods including essential hygiene products, as part of the ongoing “Operacion Kilo” programme.
