Boiro, 27th June 2019.The food group Jealsa has joined the solidarity initiatives promoted by “Obra Social la Caixa”, in collaboration with CaixaBank. The Galician fish and shellfish canning company has renewed the participation in the milk collection campaign “Ningún niño sin bigote” (“No child without a mustache”) and in the child vaccination campaign, “Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance”.
This agreement was formalized at Jealsa’s head office in Boiro, by Jesús Alonso, President of Jealsa and Catalina Gumma, Director of Corporate Banking at CaixaBank in Galicia. The representative from the bank thanked the collaboration of Jealsa and acknowledged before Jealsa’s President the sensitivity that distinguishes the company. “This generous donation has the great value of allowing more Galician children to be attended to during the Summer months, when milk runs low in the food banks, and to vaccinate more children in the countries of Africa and Latin America where the campaign is carried out”, she highlighted.
For his part, the President of Jealsa, Jesús M. Alonso Escurís, congratulated “Obra Social la Caixa” for the great work they are doing in social action and said: “Within Jealsa’s Corporate Social Responsibility Programme, children are a priority because we believe that, in any society, children are the most vulnerable. As we are a company committed to the development of childhood, not only locally but also worldwide, these programs fit perfectly well with the values of commitment and solidarity that our founder has always transmitted”.
