Prologis did its bit to spread a little happiness again this holiday season, inviting the occupants of Prologis Park Sant Boi to take part in the 2018 edition of its traditional Christmas toy collection campaign, “Gift a Smile”, which ran from November 23, 2018 to January 2, 2019.
Among the many companies to take part were Correos Express, GrupoUNO CTC, Naeko Logistics, Salvador Escoda, Decathlon and Repser Trade. Once again, the objective was to collect as many toys as possible for the Esplai Eixida Camps Blancs youth center. The nonprofit, which is based in Sant Boi de Llobregat, has been helping disadvantaged families since 1996 and runs social and educational programs for young people in the Camps Blancs and Casablanca neighborhoods.
The campaign was organized with the Sant Boi City Hall and the Red Cross and, once again, was a huge success collecting 940 toys. To receive their presents, the 95 families and 209 children between the ages of 3 and 9 were invited to the Camps Blancs community center on January 5. In keeping with local tradition, the presents, wrapped by Prologis employees a few days before, were handed out by the three wise men.
“We are extremely grateful to all the volunteers, companies and organizations that helped to make this campaign such a success. Thanks to you, we have touched the lives of hundreds of children in need. We organize “Gift a Smile” every year, and it gives us great joy”, said Angel Ovejas, Property Management Director at Prologis Spain.
