The company has also decided to contribute to the collection, supplementing the total amount donated by employees with its own already defined contribution.

"We can only get out of this epochal emergency by helping each other, as people and as an Italian system made up of health facilities, businesses and social realities," he explained the President of CPL CONCORDIA, Paolo Barbieri. "For this reason, in addition to the hotel lent to the Modena Local Health Authority and other solidarity actions carried out during the emergency period, CPL and its workers have decided to continue the immediate support to the territories in the post-Covid emergency recovery with an internal fundraiser".

The recipients of CPL contributions range from the Intensive Care Units of Hospitals for the purchase of technological equipment and protective equipment for health workers, to the realities engaged in supporting the disabled and families in economic crisis.

Specifically, in the Modena area, the funds raised will go to in favor of a project to strengthen the Pneumology of the Santa Maria Bianca Hospital in Mirandola for the monitoring of hospitalized patients, with a view to improving care both in the face of a possible return of the Covid emergency, and for the management of all other respiratory diseases, for the benefit of the citizens of the Mirandola district.

"In this situation, which has never been experienced before at a national and global level, no one can think of saving themselves, neither as an individual nor as a company," concluded President Barbieri. "We feel a strong duty to confirm, in the wake of CPL's history, our attention to the territory with the implementation of targeted and concrete proposals to face the challenging future that awaits us".
