The healthcare emergency caused by the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus created serious problems for Residential Care Facilities. In the Province of Alessandria, where the Riccoboni Group has a presence thanks to its subsidiary, Grassano SpA, it wished to support these facilities, which found themselves in particular difficulty as a result of a lack of the safety equipment needed to protect residents and staff alike.

The Group’s companies were also experiencing these shortages, along with the difficulty of finding PPE such as FFP2 and FFP3 masks, which are indispensable to uninterrupted industrial waste disposal—an essential service for the community. Once we had received a portion of the long-awaited supplies needed for our own collaborators’ safety, the surplus was distributed to Residential Care Facilities in the Alessandria area; these included boot covers, disposable coveralls and 2,800 FFP2 masks.

As Angelo and Marco Riccoboni, sole directors of Riccoboni Holding, stated:

“Working in a place means becoming a part not only of its economic landscape, but also of its social fabric, engaging with the challenges, concerns, problems and hopes of the community, of which many of our collaborators are members. It means establishing a relationship of cooperation and support, especially at a difficult time such as this—but not only. That is why we will do everything possible to contribute, in any way we can, not only to dealing with this health emergency, but also, and most importantly, to ensuring the continuity of the essential service that is waste disposal.”
