The Jockey Club delivered food and coats to Red Solidaria and the Women’s Council

This Wednesday afternoon, at the offices of the local racecourse, the Jockey Club authorities delivered food and coats that were obtained through a collection made in the last official competition to two city charities such as Red Solidaria and the Women’s Council.

Among the products that were delivered were yerba mate, sugar, oil, tomato sauce, powdered milk, rice and other non-perishable foods. In addition, and to stand out in this cold context, coats and heaters were included.

The president of the Jockey Club, Andrés Balkenende, commented that “it was an idea of ​​our commission to get closer to other institutions in the city, in this case Red Solidaria and the Women’s Council, to be able to collaborate in this harsh winter and with all the problems that the city, the province and the country are experiencing due to the serious crisis that we have. It is a way for the Jockey Club to be able to help”.

Regarding how it was implemented, he explained that “everything raised from the entry of the last race on July 10 was used to buy all these elements. We are also carrying out a campaign to receive coats that lasts until the end of the month and the proceeds are also will be allocated to these institutions”.

“The club’s idea was to put all this together and transfer it to people who know where the needs are. Opening up to the community was one of the duties that we set for ourselves as a board of directors. We did it with Sportivo where we are giving chess classes to all the with a teacher from our club who is doing well. Now we are going to do it with Colegio San Martín and so on with different institutions with which we have to want to work together. It seems to us that the strength of the city is the institutions and the Jockey must exchange efforts and experiences”, added Balkenende.

For his part, Marcelo Valverde of Red Solidaria, pointed out that “we are always very grateful that they take us into account. We are a simple link to the most vulnerable sectors of the city. That an institution like the Jockey thinks of them is more than good. That speaks to how we are as a society. People’s generosity no longer surprises us. That clubs, private companies or local authorities all work together pulling for the same side… I think it’s the right way to work”.

When distributing the fruit of the solidarity campaigns, Valverde commented that “those who are the thermometers of the neighborhoods, which are the community kitchens, help us a lot. We work with each of them and also with families that we accompany throughout the year, that they are not making it to the end of the month because the crisis is very strong”.

“Here there are very good quality products, first-line brands. There is powdered milk, which is a fairly expensive product, we have heaters that are very important. Things that we never receive out there, so they will be very welcome,” he assured. .
