The Association: COEUR ENFANCE
The club has donated 500€ to this association in 2018.
The "Coeur Enfance" association, which primarily supports single-parent families with children up to 12 years old, brings together volunteers from the Gulf's service clubs.
Chaired by André Falconnet, she continues her missions to the most disadvantaged through the social workers of the department of Var and the PMI (maternal and child protection), which indicate in the Gulf critical situations. "The goal is to respond quickly to needs, says André Falconnet. We make it a point of honor to act within 48 hours Milk, diapers, rent regulations, water or electricity bills, have a car repaired, pay for medical care, they are our actions. We also distribute gift vouchers at Christmas time, 30 euros per child. Last year we rescued 40 children and 31 families in the Gulf. "
"We are a dozen and the association that works thanks to donations, the generosity of volunteers, but also promotional operations carried out in the year (sale of clothing in Cogolin, "oysters" operation in Cavalaire which brought together 120 people ...), concludes the president who is worried however to see the number of cases of distress increase each year.
If you have clothes, linen etc, that you don't need anymore, we recommend you to donate it to the Catholic Charity association in our area.
In La Croix Valmer, it is located below the Bibliotèque facing the car park near to the Information Office.
It is open each Thursday between 18:00 and 19:00 to receive donations of clothes, food, canned produce etc. From there, it is distributed locally.
Due to work on the parking area, the La Croix Valmer deposit site has been replaced. When we have further information, we'll keep you poste.

Although a Catholic organisation, the distribution of donations, as you would expect, is made irrespective of faith, or no faith, and it assists those referred to them by the social security and other services.
At both receptions, you are greeted and helped with your donations. They appreciate the support from the Club.
It will help our relations with these Charities to mention donations are made by members of the Club.
