Specchio dei tempi intervenes to help the people of Piedmont. The foundation of La Stampa, which has always been close to its own territory, has decided to open a subscription for the inhabitants of the municipalities affected by the floods of 2-3 October 2020. For Specchio it is about resuming a sad but consolidated tradition that in 1994 saw us collect over 25 billion lire for the flood victims along the course of the river Tanaro. Meanwhile, solidarity activity in the affected areas has found an important partner in the Reale Foundation that will support interventions for 70,000 euros. Confartigianato Cuneo, Banca Alpi Marittime and Unione Industriali Torino have also allocated contributions.
The first initiative that has been decided is that of the “Flood Tender” with which 65 small businesses in the most affected municipalities of the Cuneo area has been helped. A project intended above all for shops, artisans, bars and small restaurants. Each company has alreaduy received a non-repayable grant of 3000 euros.
Alongside the tender for small commercial activities in the Cuneo area, structural works are planned in the municipalities most affected by the emergency. A series of aid packages has already been decided and forwarded referring to the popular subscription which has so far made it possible to collect a total of over 285,000 euros through 600 individual donations.
Considerable aid has already been forwarded to the Ceva Professional Training Centre (10 thousand euros), to the municipal kindergarten in Ceva (10 thousand euros), to the multifunctional Centre of Nucetto (10 thousand euros) and to the Pollicino Park of Ormea (10 thousand euros). Currently, interventions in other municipalities are also being evaluated. These choices will be completed within a few days, to ensure promptness which is essential in these situations in order to give impetus and hope to those who have been hit.
