The hostel Manoel Galdino Vieira, founded in 1927 in the capital, was renovated by the volunteers of New Acropolis. This residence provides daily bath, dining, bed and breakfast to those most in need. This is the sixth edition of ‘Saturday of Citizenship’, activity carried out by New Acropolis in Florianopolis since 2009 with the objective of bringing together people and institutions interested in working for the common good on a voluntary basis. Over 80 volunteers spent more than 12 hours of painting, furniture and ceiling renovation, construction of new platforms for beds, shelves for storing clothing and materials… in addition to other cleaning and sorting tasks.
