Implementation of solidarity initiatives to help people in vulnerable situations.
During the month of December, for the third consecutive year, LLYC Foundation has launched solidarity initiatives for LLYCERS to get involved in a social action that awakens their most caring side.
With the aim of improving the lives of people in vulnerable situations, 210 volunteers from all our operations have collaborated with 13 associations to which they have donated food, toys, clothes, school supplies and other materials, thus spreading hope and happiness to those who need it most.
