“Last year, more than 1,000 Christmas boxes were distributed. This year, the tote bags
are preferred to cardboard boxes for a more ecological approach”, according to the secretary of La Bonne assiette, Angélique Gorce. As tradition now dictates, the rule is to garnish them withhygiene products, insulated bottles, small games and finally chocolates
to end the year on a comforting note.
Comfort and a little warmth The tote bags used can be donated or sewn by you. “Our desire is for all beneficiaries to have the same products. Something warm, something to wash and finally something to enjoy
“, continues Angélique Gorce.
