Avio Aero Volunteers

Our Rivalta Engagement Team colleagues organized the sale of Easter eggs and cakes to support CasaOz. The CasaOz non-profit association was founded in 2005 by a group of Turin individuals who decided to help out families with a sick child. CasaOz is first and foremost a day home for sick children and their families. A place to find rest and support, to read, chat, share joys, successes, projects. Where children coping with illness can find a peaceful place to be with their families and people who, day after day, can share their difficulties and breakthroughs.
 “Your commitment will help us pursue our activities and continue offering our services to children and their families,” as our CasaOz contact wrote, to thank us in the name of the whole staff.
The Pomigliano Avio Aero Volunteers, instead, for Easter supported a social pastry project, “Nata Vita,” selling the Easter cakes made by the youth at the Nisida juvenile detention center to their colleagues. “Nata Vita” is a project controlled by the Bambù non-profit, a member of the Confederation of Campania Region cooperatives, which around two years ago opened a pastry laboratory at the Nisida juvenile detention center.
For Mother’s Day, the Rivalta volunteers, headed and coordinated by Monica Calligaro, organized the sale of research azaleas, in collaboration with the Candiolo AIRC (Italian Association for Cancer Research): 328 azaleas were sold, for a total of 5,185 Euros collected. A resounding success, also confirmed by the words in the thank you letter that the president, Allegra Agnelli, wrote to us.
On Sunday, May 29th, the Brindisi Avio Aero Volunteers group, in collaboration with Legambiente (the Italian environmentalist association), organized a beach clean-up day. Up at dawn, donning a purple shirt, gloves, rakes, bags for separate waste collection... and they got down to it!
A group of brave colleagues, armed with passion and so much goodwill, tried to clean up a stretch of beach of about 20 meters, connecting the beautiful Castello Alfonsino with the northern coast of the city.

This stretch of beach is filled with debris of every kind: glass, plastic, wood, nets, ropes, and various other types of waste. And so, with a sense of humor, a fresh sea breeze, and so much goodwill, around 15 waste bags were filled.

A great challenge, a nice gesture for our sea and our region, and clear blue waters worthy of a Blue Flag. Meanwhile, the plastic cap collection at the Brindisi plant for the Candiolo Foster House continues at full steam.
Thank you to everyone at all our plants and offices for your commitment!
