Quadpack Foundation lends a helping hand in 2017
Quadpack Foundation works to make the world a cleaner, fairer, more beautiful place to live. Throughout 2017, Quadpack's charitable arm supported a number of social and environmental projects in Europe.
Can Déu reforestation project, Sabadell, Spain
Starting last year, it continued its ongoing sponsorship of the Can Déu reforestation project in Spain. Forest owner and manager Fundació Antigua Caixa Sabadell is organising the area's reforestation, following the destruction caused by a storm in 2014.
Charity photocall for Children's Oncology, Barcelona, Spain
The Vall d'Hebron Hospital hosted a photocall at a busy Barcelona shopping centre, with all proceeds donated to the hospital's research into paediatric oncology. Quadpack Foundation funded materials and photographer's services, and donated framed baby prints for the paediatric ward.
Riding for the Disabled, Abingdon, UK
Quadpack Foundation supported the construction of an indoor arena for this horse-riding school, which aims to improve the physical and mental wellbeing of disabled people. The new arena will enable it to increase the number of riders it can accommodate, thereby reducing its long waiting list.
Capaç-i-tant integration project, Manlleu, Spain
The Capaç-i-tant project, run by TAC Osona, helps young people with mental disabilities integrate into the labour market. The organisation is setting up a training facility, where beneficiaries can prepare for employment through classes and job simulations, supported by a team of psychologists, social workers and trainers.
Les Blouses Roses, Paris, France
Volunteers from Les Blouses Roses spend time with children in hospitals, reading books and telling stories, keeping them company when their family cannot. Quadpack Foundation sponsored the Teddy Bear project, where children are given cuddly toys to give them comfort during hospitalisation.
Città Infinita family events, Italy and Spain
Città Infinita is a participatory event for families, a construction game to build cities using mainly industrial wood residues, including hundreds of wooden pieces from the Technotraf factory, donated by Quadpack Foundation.
Quadpack Foundation is a non-profit organisation established by Quadpack Industries in 2016, out of a desire to give back to the communities that have given the company a home. Through Quadpack Foundation, it aims to share its success by acknowledging beauty in all its forms. Especially the beauty that’s inside us, and the natural beauty that surrounds us.
