In the 5th annual Propeller Club Valencia Charity Gala, Boluda Corporación Marítima was represented by the Communication and Institutional Relations manager and the associate Human Resources manager
Propeller Club Valencia has this year raised 25,000 euros for Aportem Puerto Solidario Valencia, an entity that fundraises for women, children and immigrants at risk of social exclusion in the port area. The money raised will provide food, clothing, toiletries, school supplies and sports equipment for disadvantaged groups, as well as meeting the most urgent needs of 16 associations and institutions of Valencia’s maritime districts.
At the 5th annual Logistic Sector Charity Dinner held on Friday 1 December, the Board of Directors of Propeller Club Valencia, the logistics executives and entrepreneurs association, marked the 20th anniversary of the entity in Valencia by redoubling their efforts to supplement donations, raising a total of 25,000 euros.
This initiative demonstrated once again the Valencian logistics sector’s solidarity in leading major initiatives to support the most disadvantaged groups in the city. The event, held at the Hotel Las Arenas, in Valencia, was attended by more than 170 people from all the 19 companies, institutions and associations that make up Aportem Puerto Solidario. Representing Boluda Corporación Marítima was the manager of Communication and Institutional Relations Amparo Valero and the associate Human Resources manager Alfonso Garrido.
A founding member of Aportem Puerto Solidario Valencia, Boluda Corporación Marítima supports and participates in humanitarian actions as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility policy, this year donating to the raffle two cases of wine bottled in Bodegas Fos, the company’s winery located in Elciego in Rioja Alavesa.
The gala raised 2,000 euros more than last year thanks to donations from collaborators, sponsors, tickets, raffles, drinks and the generous donation from the Propeller Club and Propeller Junior.
President of Propeller Club Valencia Francisco Prado stressed that all the fundraising and organizational efforts “had been worthwhile”, as the beneficiaries were the children living in the port area at risk of social exclusion, who “deserve the absolute best”.
