Dear friends of My School Ticino,
We would like to share with you the success of the Christmas charity box initiative promoted by the Medacta for Life Foundation in collaboration with ATFA- Ticino Foster Family Association.
Thanks to your generosity and heartfelt support, all of the children and teenagers currently living in the shelter home – 360 aged from 0 to 18 – were able to find a present under the Christmas tree this year.
The Christmas parcels you brought us, all wrapped with love and containing generous gifts were given mainly to the youngest children and those of school age. The older children were given Manor bonus cards thanks to the generous donations that we received (a lump sum of 3600.-CHF).
The participation for the collection of the charity boxes was remarkable: as well as giving them to all the children living in the shelter home we were able to donate the remaining parcels to the Soccorso Operaio Svizzero, who distributed them to children of the migrants living in our local area. https://www.sos-ti.ch/servizio-migrazione.html
Our voice joins with those of who received your gifts: a heartfelt thank you to you all!
We renew our best wishes to you all for a peaceful new year.
