The COVID-19 pandemic has been a highly challenging time for Brazil and has greatly impacted several communities in need. Sonepar has therefore partnered with Gerando Falcões, a nonprofit organization based in Favela, that aims to transform the lives of children and young adults through a combination of socio-emotional and professional education.
Sonepar’s main goal is to generate donations through various channels within their Brazil network, enabling associates and customers to contribute Gerando Falcões’s initiatives, reinforcing the company’s belief that we are able to overcome times of crisis when we work together.
Our brands in Brazil, Nortel, Dimensional and Eletronor have also joined the cause, to collect and distribute digital food baskets to needy families in vulnerable communities which were profoundly impacted by the COVID crisis. This initiative which began last month has already raised the equivalent of over $2,000.
