The “solidarity” centre.

The cost of living and the difficulties of setting up in Val for new arrivals as for year round residents is real. To help, the association has set up a “solidarity” centre.

The “solidarity” centre is a place to re-use and recycle your objects by giving them a second life.

Collecting clothing, bedding, towels, kitchen utensils and ski equipment, etc. Donations which are clean and in good condition are then resold for a symbolic price of between 1 and 5€.

The “solidarity” centre is located in the Maison de Val, open all year round during the Vie Val d’Is opening times.
