HiperDino raised almost 150,000 euros and donated more than 9,000 kilos of food for La Palma

HyperDino has managed to collect 147,498 euros in donations from customers for the town councils and the people affected by the Cumbre Vieja volcano eruption. The DinoSol Foundation has served as a bridge between the company and the institutions to deliver aid, which has materialized in food, personal hygiene products, cleaning products and household items.

The director of the DinoSol Foundation, Virginia Avilaexplained that "there have been months of intense work, in which we spoke daily with the councilors of Social Services of the municipalities of El Paso, Los Llanos de Aridane and Tazacorte to listen to them and see how we could help, to reach those evicted families and that they had lost everything, including colleagues from HiperDino de La Palma”.

Virginia Avila wanted to “thank all customers for their empathy and solidarity with the situation on the Island” and added that “HiperDino and the DinoSol Foundation have been involved from the outset, donating more than 9,000 kg of food and beverages mainly to the three town halls and collaborating with the Red Cross and the Cabildo de La Palma”.

He also thanked "all those suppliers who, from different parts of the Canary Islands and the Peninsula, have trusted HiperDino and the DinoSol Foundation so that their donations, estimated at more than 20,000 kg, reached La Palma and were correctly delivered".

To all this we must add the 3,270 kg of food collected in the boxes located in the HiperDino El Paso and HiperDino el Puente stores.

From the beginning, the chain has made a transparency portal available on its website hiperdino.es, with weekly updates, in which all collections can be tracked, as well as donations made. January 9 was the last day on which the solidarity bonus was available in physical stores and on its online channel.
