Last Saturday, December 1st, the collection of garments that will help to withstand the cold weather during these dates began to benefit the less fortunate during this time of year. Ceviche de mi Tata launched its campaign giving away more than ceviche. It consists in helping people who are in the streets of San José, it started the first week of December and will end on December 9th.
In addition to collecting the garments, the brand is committed to donating 50 kilograms of fish ceviche and, in this way, people receive shelter and food. The collection of clothes will take place at the restaurant Ceviche de mi Tata, located in Barrio Escalante in front of the restaurant Whapin, 11 am to 8 pm, and will end on Saturday, December 8th, at the same time. Additionally, collection points were set up in the Curridabat and Santo Domingo de Heredia parks.
“We invite people to participate in this campaign, we do it wholeheartedly. We know that many people do not have the luck to have food and heat during these dates and if we can do something to change or improve we will do it”, commented Diego Vargas, the owner of the restaurant. Added to this, monetary contributions will be received that the brand commits to transforming into food.
Items that will be received include blankets, coats, pants, scarves, gloves, hats, among others. It should be noted that only items that are in good condition for use will be accepted.
