The passage of the old year to the new one is always a moment for taking stock of what has come to pass: goals reached and projects carried out.
Taking a few steps backward, one cannot forget the flood that hit our region in the first days of November and that, given the proximity, brought Lago to make its own contribution. Acting quickly, in mid-November we decided to put ourselves into play, going straight to one of the worst-hit areas in order to offer our help. We rolled up our sleeves and threw ourselves into the work: we dismantled furniture, cleaned the walls and floors of flooded houses and businesses, collected and sorted material to distribute to affected residents.
Coming into contact with certain realities, we were inspired to not limit ourselves to a single contribution, to the day that saw us in operation, but to help these people with a longer term goal. And so was born the AnGeLO project.
Through the parish of Casalserugo and the municipality of Vicenza we obtained a list of the names of some families in extreme difficulty to whom LAGO would provide furnishings and, with all of us contributing, all that which would be needed to return them to their daily life: dishes, curtains, sheets, covers, etc.
We wanted to involve as many of our clients and suppliers as possible in this initiative: already two of our clients located close to the flooded areas, in the areas around Padua and Vicenza, had confirmed their availability for collaborating with us.
On 18 December we gave an “official” start to this project and armed with screwdrivers and hammers we assembled some furniture…only a start, but as one knows, “he who makes a good start is halfway finished”.
