Annual RITO charity campaign “Change old against new” starts, “Palidzē” will take part


The charity campaign “Change old against new” organized by SIA “ Arkolat” starts in all RITO shops. The campaign takes place already for the 8th year and this year, in the cooperation with the charity organization “Palīdzē”, the dishes which will be collected during the campaign will be delivered to the foster families and low income families in all Latvia.


The idea of the charity campaign is following- during April in any RITO shop in Latvia people can bring their old, used dishes or other kitchen- ware which they do not need or they are not using anymore. In acknowledgement for taking part in this project and to encourage people to be more responsive RITO is giving 20% discount for the purchase of new dishes or other kitchen- ware in their shops. The things to bring- they can be new, used just a little, used, as well with defects. The employees of the shop will take all the things people will bring, but the new owners will reach only those things which will be considered as suitable for use. It is possible also to participate in the project by not buying anything new in the shops.


The charity campaign ”Change old against new” which we organize already for the 8th spring so far has had a big responsiveness from the inhabitants of Latvia. During these years together we have helped very many people and these are not only low income families. These are also single mothers, old people, families with disabled children and families in hard life situations. We have no doubt that also this year many kind people will respond to our appeal to donate. We also ask everybody who needs new dishes to contact us and we will for sure give them to you. It is a great possibility for everybody to help people around us and also to buy new dishes and kitchen- ware cheaper- says Daina Pečate, the president of SIA Arcolat.


In this charity project take part all RITO shops in Latvia, the project will take place on 1st- 30rd of April. More information about the project:
