Centre Genevois du Volontariat, Hospice gÃ©nÃ©ral, Union pour la promotion du commerce genevois.
Each year, a collection of food items, baby care and hygienic products is organized at the entrance to supermarkets in Geneva, Switzerland. The collected products are given away to various charities that distribute them to the needy in Geneva.
The "Hospice gÃ©nÃ©ral" guarantees the equitable redistribution of the goods collected among all the charitable organizations of Geneva. Last year, 37 tons of food products were collected thanks to the generosity of the public and the participation of over 350 volunteers assigned to 38 stores.
The volunteers involved are assigned to a supermarket, where they provide people with information about the project and receive donations.
