Walker Laird has teamed up with Renfrewshire Foodbank to help fight hunger this Christmas time. We are pleased to be working together for this year’s Christmas food drive.
Facing Christmas with little or no money and struggling to make ends meet can be the reality for many people. Unable to afford food to make a decent hot meal, let alone presents, is a very daunting time for too many.
Walker Laird are hosting a food drive
That’s why, at Walker Laird, we’ve decided to help by hosting a food drive at our Renfrew office at 10 Canal Street. Please drop in on your way past with a donation, if you can. Underneath our Christmas tree, there is a box for whatever you can bring us.
Things like UHT milk, fruit juice (long life carton), cereals, jam, tinned fruits, tinned vegetables, tea bags, dried rice, pasta sauces and toiletries are some of the most needed items.
The work of Renfrewshire Foodbank
Renfrewshire Foodbank provides three days of emergency food to local individuals and families in crisis. The foodbank is run by a team of volunteers who give up their time to collect food, organise the warehouse and distribute food packages to people in need. 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. All the food collected will be taken to Renfrewshire Foodbank on the 21st of December, in time for Christmas.
Renfrewshire Foodbank distributes food at Renfrew Baptist Church, Erskine Baptist Church, Johnstone High Parish Church and Central Baptist Church in Paisley.
In the future, it is hoped that more people can be helped out of crisis and fewer people need to use food banks. You can find out more about the work of the Renfrewshire Foodbank on their website.
