Futuramedia has donated 50 of its 42” screens to a leading French charity, Emmaüs. Following an upgrading of its installed screens, the company decided to give the replaced screens for the charity to sell off. The sale will take place on the weekends of November 26/27 and December 10/11 in the suburbs of Paris.
The company prides itself on its green credentials and has already undertaken several other projects to support the community, and saw this opportunity to give a second life to the screens and make contribution to charity at the same time.
The Emmaüs charity was created on 1949 by the late, charismatic priest, known as “l’abbé Pierre”, and works to help the homeless and the socially excluded. It has 117 centres in France and gives shelter to 3,860 homeless people.
