Companies

Arrels works to transform the lives of homeless people in Barcelona, but we cannot do it alone. The support of the administration and of citizens is of vital importance. So too is the support of companies and entities.

Get your team involved in the challenge #nobodysleepingonthestreet, sensibilize yourselves to the reality of homeless people and contribute towards creating a better society.

How can I get involve?

  • Offer economic support to rent a flat, equip a new home, or contribute in the attention services and in the activities of our open centre. Download the catalogue with the projects available to finance (in spanish) and make a donation.
  • Mobilize your workmates to organise a company meeting, a dinner, a party, or simply allocate money you pay for a morning coffee to Arrels’ projects.
  • Create a solidarity challenge and invite your relatives and friends. It can be a race, an excursion… whatever you want! Besides, you can link your challenge to any of the projects that we still couldn’t make possible because of the lack of funding.
  • Corporate voluntary work with your team. Arrels offers to companies’ workers the possibility to carry out an occasional and specific voluntary work at the entity. It is possible to come and play with the Arrels’ football team, get involve doing craftwork at the Open Center, take part in actions of sensibilization, etc.
  • Go out and “Walk together”. Discover Barcelona from a point of view of someone who has lived on the street and share their personal route: where they slept, where they ate, where they washed themselves. Groups of 15 people as maximum / 10€ per person.
  • Work one day for Arrels. Allocate the salary of that day to strengthen our projects in favor of homeless people. A little gesture can help us to look after many situations.
  • Organise a charity collection. There is always a lack of clothes in Arrels’ wardrobe. Especially jeans (sizes 40-48), shoes and trainers (sizes 42-46). When the winter is coming, there are also needed blankets and sleeping bags. Contact us to know which needs we have currently.

And what happens after you get involved?

The collaboration is not only a specific action. The goal is to work together to sensibilize people and to look for new ways to keep making our goal possible: #nobodysleepingonthestreet. That is why, from Arrels:

  • We explain good practices of collaboration through social media.
  • We provide material to organise activities in favour of homeless people.
  • We offer you a stamp of a key company so you can put it in your website or your office and we will invite you to witness the progress you are making possible.
