Covides donates 7.694 euros to La Marató de TV3


Covides has made a contribution of 7.694€ to the 2020 edition of La Marató de TV3 for the COVID-19, which was held on December 20 and has open the contributions until March 31. The total amount of the contribution has been achieved with the sum of two actions. The first was triggered by the epidemiological situation itself caused by COVID-19. The traditional Members Party, which for the last 20 years has been held at the end of the year at the Prunamala winery in Sant Sadurní and which this year would have reached its 38th edition, had to be cancelled and the cooperative decided to devote the organization expenses to La Marató de TV3. This action has been joined by the campaign developed in Covides stores and that has allowed to involve all members, collaborators and customers, allocating to La Marató, part of the sales of Duc de Foix Brut Nature cava that have been made in Covides stores during the Christmas campaign.

 

The contribution was announced on Saturday, January 30th, during the Ordinary General Assembly that Covides held telematically. At the meeting, the Covides board of directors thanked all those who had made possible to make this action of solidarity, highlighting it as "an example of collective and social success in a very complicated situation and that has involved all those who are part of the cooperative".

 

During the assembly, thanks were also given to the La Marató Foundation -in charge of carrying out each edition of the Marató de TV3- for the work it does year after year, which is the most important solidarity action in Catalonia. It is for this reason that Covides has signed a collaboration agreement with the foundation.

 

Covides committed to the social and environmental network of the territory.

 

The collaboration with the La Marató Foundation is added to a large number of collaborative and solidarity initiatives that Covides has been developing for some time. Among its social and corporate responsibility actions are the celebration of events and exhibitions to commemorate the day of the working woman, the work developed with the ACTUA Association with inclusive activities during the harvest, aimed at young people at risk of social exclusion, collaboration with the Salut Mental Catalunya Foundation, scholarships to students of oenology at the University Rovira i Virgili and international trade at the ESIC Business & Marketing School, or collaboration in the sustainability project "Vinyes per calor" among many others.
