In the coming weeks, we will tell you about the launch of the six projects funded by our Inclusive Restart call and by you through community crowdfunding.
Today we highlight the San Giuseppe Parish in Castellammare del Golfo, in the province of Trapani. With the project Il Buon Samaritano (The Good Samaritan), the Parish, along with the parish Caritas and the Bottega del Sorriso, will be better able to serve families and individuals living in fragile situations in Castellammare del Golfo.
In recent weeks, work has been underway to renovate the premises that will host: a warehouse for food, clothing, toys, and other essential goods for people living in fragile situations; as well as a counseling and assistance center to provide the much-needed moral, as well as material, support.
Thanks to this refurbishment of the spaces, the San Giuseppe Parish is equipping itself with a larger, safer, and barrier-free storage facility, furnished with functional tools and structures: they are indeed purchasing refrigerators, shelving, computers to manage archives, and cabinets for clothing. Thus, volunteers will be able to operate with more care and will be able to assist more people and families while respecting the physical distancing required by the current historical moment.
In the meantime, the San Giuseppe Parish has not stopped its volunteer services, demonstrating how these are the backbone of communities, not only during crises.
Best wishes for the continued work to the Parish and the volunteers who are reaching out to those living in fragile situations.
