The company’s help is in addition to that already given to Senama centers, the manufacture and donation of masks, sanitation in various communes, among other actions.
On Tuesday, April 28, CMPC made official the contribution to nine homes of the National Service for Minors (Sename) that consists of various supplies of care, hygiene, and personal protection.
The aid – consisting of elements such as alcohol gel, surgical gloves, masks, bibs and facial protectors – will benefit 251 highly vulnerable boys and girls from foster homes in the communes of Puente Alto (3 ), Los Angeles (4), Collipulli ( 1) and Cañete (1).
The announcement of the aid was made at the La Moneda palace in a ceremony led by the Minister of Social Development, Sebastián Sichel, and the Undersecretary for Children, Carol Bown, to which CMPC was invited, whose representative was the manager of Corporate Affairs, Guillermo Turner.
According to the CMPC executive, “the company is 100 years old this year, this was probably not the celebration we had imagined, but it has given us a tremendous opportunity to strengthen the commitment we have with all people, through various activities, and in this case we can contribute with the children of foster homes where we are neighbors and we are very happy to help them. After all, this crisis is giving a great opportunity to demonstrate what is the commitment of companies to the entire community”.
