Tenerife Pearl helps with the purchase of school supplies and footwear 

 

Thanks to their fundraising bracelet campaign, Tenerife Pearl, has delivered 4689 euros to the Red Cross for the purchase of school supplies and footwear.

Thanks to an agreement signed between the two entities last May, the Red Cross will serve about 100 children from a total of 7 municipalities Tenerife, so they can join the new school term normally.

This past May, the Red Cross in the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Tenerife Pearl (Perla Canaria SL) signed an agreement that was in effect until August 31, to raise funds to support the “Back to School” campaign.

Thanks to this initiative Tenerife Pearl has managed to raise a total of 4,689 euros that has been used to purchase school supplies (pencils, notebooks, markers, …) and sneakers, in order to serve about 100 children in social and economic vulnerability from the municipalities of Adeje, Arona, Puerto de la Cruz, Candelaria, Santiago del Teide and Guía de Isora and Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

This initiative has been launched by Tenerife Pearl (Perla Canaria SL), specialists in pearl jewelry, with the sale of their “Fundraising Bracelet” in its eight shops in the island of Tenerife (in Armenime, Candelaria and Puerto de la Cruz) and Gran Canaria (in Meloneras, Mogan, Playa del Inglés and Arguineguin), and through their online stores, selling a total of 4,689 bracelets.

For the sale of each bracelet, which costs 9.95 euros, Tenerife Pearl has donated the amount of one euro to the Red Cross, intending to minimise the economic impact that the start of the new school term means for families with economic difficulties so their children can join the new school term normally.

These type of interventions are some of the measures promoted by the Spanish Red Cross to strengthen the aid appeal launched last year to meet the increased demands for help and the increasing casualization of the socioeconomic status of people seeking support because their family network can’t supply them and unemployment benefits and other subsidies have been consumed.
