On 12 May, a fire destroyed the Secours Populaire’s warehouse in Avignon. The Vaucluse collection centre, together with the warehouse and all the stock inside it, were destroyed. The logistics equipment has also been lost (pallet truck, forklift truck, rack, stock management computer, etc.).
In order to help the association, Carrefour and Carrefour Market stores throughout the Vaucluse département are showing their support by running a donation campaign from 14 to 23 May. At the same time, Carrefour and Carrefour Market are giving €5000 of emergency aid in order to help fund the 10,000 meals that the association usually provides, as well as storage equipment.
In January of this year, Carrefour Solidarity organised a collection campaign at store checkouts and provided financial support in the wake of the severe weather that hit southern France.
