A few words about the “I Offer Because I Care” program by “Together for Children”

The “I Offer Because I Care” program was created in 2012 to support children living in facilities or/and supported by child protection agencies.

More than 200 agencies across Greece participate in the program’s network, which annually supports 18,000 children with the provision of food, essential items, school supplies, toys, clothing, footwear, and furniture.

The purpose of the program is to reduce socio-economic inequalities and create better living conditions for children and their families, while also helping to upgrade the facilities.

The goods are collected at the “Together for Children” facilities throughout the year, in collaboration with schools of all levels, private sector companies, individuals, and the Food Bank. They are then evaluated, sorted, and offered to the collaborating agencies nationwide, according to their needs.
