HOLIDAY WEEK FOR DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE
The Canton of Zurich has several TEXAID used clothing containers that collect items on behalf of the Swiss Red Cross in the Canton of Zurich. By selling these clothes, TEXAID generates funds which go to its six participating aid agencies, as well as to numerous regional organisations. This also includes the Swiss Red Cross in the Canton of Zurich.
These proceeds help to finance some of the activities of the Youth Red Cross (YRC). Various activities are offered for people in difficult life situations. For example, the YRC organises an eventful holiday week for children and young people who, for financial reasons, cannot go on holiday or have no access to leisure or holiday activities.
