People interested in collaborating with this solidarity campaign can bring the products they deem appropriate to the collection points that will be operational from today Wednesday at the checkpoint and at the City Hall and the police checkpoint.
To the products collected, donated by neighbors and officers, will be added those that will be acquired with the profits from the sale of the association's Christmas Lottery.
