GIVE A CHRISTMAS GIFT TO WORCESTER FOODBANK
This is the last week to donate presents to the Worcester Foodbank. Last year, more than 170 children living in food poverty woke up on Christmas Day to find a surprise present provided through an annual appeal by the Worcester Foodbank – but they want to help even more families this December.
When the festive period arrives, many of the families they see find themselves worrying about what will happen over Christmas, getting themselves into more debt as they try to provide for their children. To prevent this Worcester Foodbank have expanded their offering, and from 22 November to 15 December, will be taking donations of Christmas presents.
On behalf of Worcester Foodbank, the Students’ Union is looking for unused/unopened/new presents worth up to £15 and targeted at children aged between 0-18 years old. They ask that no clothing/electrical games or games that require batteries are donated and that all presents are left unwrapped. This is so they can best match the present to the child and give them something they would use.
A box will be left behind Welcome Desk in the Students’ Union for any donations from staff or students, which will then be dropped off weekly at the foodbank.
You have until the Friday 15 December to donate.
