Spreading Christmas cheer among needy families

Rotary Club Estoi Palace International helps families in Estoi and Moncarapacho

Rotary Club Estoi Palace International (RCEPI) spread Christmas cheer among needy families in Estoi and Moncarapacho, through the local community centres Casas do Povo.

On December 14, members of RCEPI visited Estoi Casa do Povo to distribute presents to the children of families registered with the Faro Food Bank. RCEPI also supplied the 44 families with some additional goodies to help celebrate Christmas. The children were delighted to receive their present and sweets.

During the year, RCEPI provides additional milk to the monthly parcels, with three additional litres per child and one per adult plus olive oil. In 14 years, the Rotary Club has provided well over 60,000 litres of milk to assist the Food Bank.

On December 16, RCEPI arranged for additional food items to be supplied to Moncarapacho Casa do Povo. These Christmas goodies were to supplement the food parcels being distributed by the Faro Food Bank to the 66 families registered there.
