Holiday Gifts and Smiles for Local Children
Prologis customers and employees at Prologis Park Sant Boi, in collaboration with the city council of Sant Boi del Llobregat and the Red Cross, continued an ongoing holiday tradition by helping local children in need. Toy Pick-up Campaign 2017—themed "Give a smile!"—took place from December 17, 2017, to January 3, 2018.
As in recent years, Prologis invited all companies that use the park to participate in the holiday event. Companies involved included Correos Express, CTC, Salvador Escoda, Schneider Electric, Bunzl Distribution Spain, Naeko Logistics and many others.
The campaign’s objective was to collect as many toys as possible for the youth center Esplai Eixida Camps Blancs. This nonprofit in Sant Boi de Llobregat has helped families in need since 1996. In addition, the organization develops educational and social initiatives for the Camps Blancs and Casablanca neighborhoods.
The campaign was a great success, resulting in 708 toys for more than 100 underprivileged families with children between the ages of 3 and 10. On January 5, per tradition, the families took their children to the Casal de Camps Blancs, where the SM Reyes Magos gave them the gifts.
