We have teamed up with Renfrewshire Foodbank again to help fight hunger at Christmas time. We are pleased to be working together on our annual Christmas food drive for the third year running.
Facing Christmas with little or no money and struggling to make ends meet can be the reality for many. Unable to afford food to make a decent hot meal, let alone presents, is a very daunting time for too many here in Renfrewshire.This is why every year we try to help a little by hosting a food drive at our Renfrew office. We have written to all our legal and estate agency clients to encourage them to drop in with any items they may be able to donate.
Each year we have had a fantastic response from our client base and the local community. With your support lets hope we can do even better this year!
The following items are especially in demand: Long life juice, uht milk, tinned potatoes, tinned tomatoes, tinned fish, tinned fruit and jam, soap, shampoo, toilet paper and toothpaste. Although a full shopping list of essential items can be sent on request.
Renfrewshire Foodbank provides three days of emergency food to local individuals and families in crisis. Frontline care professionals including health visitors, social workers and school liaison officers refer people who are facing hunger to the Foodbank.
So you can see how important this is. Please pop into the Renfrew office and help us with our food drive. The Foodbank warehouses close on Friday 20 December to allow our volunteers to focus on distributing food to those who need it. They are delighted to accept Christmas items such as nice biscuits, sweets, but cannot give out items containing alcohol.
In order to have Christmas items ready to process and distribute before Christmas the Foodbank really need to receiver it by Friday 13th at the latest.
